What a day with Jeremy Freerks and Club 76. An American Legion unlike any other where the food coming from the kitchen and the rotating tap list is almost as incredible as the people who run and frequent the establishment. Part 1 of 2 starts with Jeremy Freerks talking beers, events, the Magic Bus and more! Part 2 coming at you soon with a look at wings and wraps at the Lodge!!
The next stop on the Keeping It Craft tour takes us to Shakespeare’s Pub & Grill on the east side of Iowa City. An absolute hidden gem that’s been doing big things for the last 22 years. Check out the video, and see why this modern-day Cheers means so much to everyone who steps through their doors.
Part 2 of the fantastic voyage to Big Grove – Solon. This time we go in the kitchen with Chef T.J. and Chef Brandon as they show us how to make the favorite White Sausage Pizza, as well as their Duck Pasta Carbonara. The Baron even gets his hands dirty in the kitchen this go-round. Watch out!
Keeping It Craft is all about showcasing the experiences, stories, and people that make our favorite restaurants, breweries, and bars special. Part one of our trip to Big Grove Brewery shines the light on a process many of us never get to see. Join us as Chef Ben Smart and Chef Sean Towley show us how they butcher and break down a suckling pig for the upcoming Big Grove Beer Dinner on April 19th. If you care about where your food comes from, and the care that goes into making it great this one is for you.
Stay tuned for Part 2 with Chef T.J., Chef Brandon, Big Grove G.M. Andrew, Pasta Carbonara, and White Sausage Pizza paired with some of the best beer in the state! Cheers!
Haywood and I were lucky enough to hit Edgewood Road Hy-Vee for episode #4 of Keeping it Craft! We talked Iowa beer, Wahlburgers, upcoming events and a special SingleSpeed tap takeover coming up! Check out the video below!
