350 Ale

Our brewer, Larry, recently tapped our latest speciality beer – the 350 Ale.

He likes to let people know it’s a nice counterpoint to the Northwest hopped beers.  Nice big malty flavor, a little fruit aroma and flavor to it, and it’s at about 5.8% ABV (alcohol by volume).

Larry says it would be well paired with our tasty cheese quesadilla, the succulent lamb burger, and the yummy Marion berry cobbler.

Yes, beer AND dessert.

Come in soon – like many specialties – it’s on until it’s gone!

Cheers!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Celebrate With Greener Cuisine

St. Patrick’s Day encourages us to break out our green. We think it’s a fine idea to keep this spirit up everyday.

Green – while certainly a color of many foods – is also how many folks talk about for sustainable, responsible ways of living and doing business.

Awareness and action are both important to help make this happen, and we do our part to work on these everyday. We think about this a lot in relation to food, since we serve lots of tasty fare from our kitchen, and savor foods of our own creation daily.

There’s certainly a lot of information to sift through to identify more sustainable foods…and there’s no single definition. We’ve made it a priority to form relationships with food producers and  vendors, and ask about their practices. We also check out their websites, and stay updated on important issues through sources like Grist.

When we are aware, we make smarter more informed choices. Our choices affect not only us – they affect everyone. When we choose a burger that’s made with grass-fed beef, we’re enjoying something that much tastier and healthier, and supporting a hardworking farmer that cares for the environment and their cattle. Here at Standing Stone look for ingredients that are as local and regional as possible, produced organically, made without synthetic agricultural chemicals or hormones, humanely raised and provided by companies that uphold good social, environmental and labor practices.

So this St. Patty’s Day, and every day, celebrate with ‘green’ food. We’ve got lots on our menu to help you there. These choices help bolster our economy and personal wellness while helping the planet. Yum!

We’re Here for You

Why do you go out to eat? Why do you go for a beer?

What is it about ‘going out’ that’s so special feeling?

At Standing Stone we want to make every experience a worthy and worthwhile one for you. A good value, nourishing and tasty, and fun. We know that we don’t always hit the mark straight on – and are always appreciative of those who say something about it. We can only fix it going forward if we know about it.

If we know about it in real-time, that’s even better. We can’t fix a poor meal after the fact – please – speak up! Tell your server if you have a suggestion for how we can do things better. We’re very grateful to be able to do so.

Our comment cards in the check presenters can also be helpful – the best experiences will flow better when you tell us what you loved, what you’d change and any suggestions in real-time.

So – when you choose to go out to Standing Stone, know we are appreciative of the opportunity to provide an excellent experience. Tell us how we can make it better.

Standing Stone. For fun, for beer, for food, for sure.

Chilly Monday, Warm Kitchen

As the morning gets started, the kitchen has been hard at work for a few hours already by 8 am.

They’re prepping the foods we serve everyday – as well as our tasty specials – fresh and smelling great. Surely they’ll nourish AND satisfy our guests today.

The brewer is cleaning early so as not to spray guests below the brew house deck on the mezzanine. The beer, like the food, requires an attention to detail to ensure it’s of high quality.

Enjoy your first day of the week – come visit us soon. We’d love to see you!
