Oct. 4 | Hop Alley’s menu is top-heavy, with ample appetizers to nibble on while sipping from the beverage list at the bottom. While you may come for “one drink,” stay for the farm-fresh rotating menu, for which the meats and produce are hand-selected by Chef Thomas Humphries from small farmers and butchers.
The Dishes | Pimento cheese platter, pork chop with heirloom tomato jam and collard greens and blackberry fruit crisp to polish it off.
The Drinks | Try a flight of five of the (nearly too-good-to-be-true priced) six in-house brews to start. Get seasonal with their recipes for Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Ale. No hard feelings if you branch out to the rotating guest draft or curated list of bottles, either.
The Deal | As the ultimate neighborhood watering hole, Hop Alley has the same trendy vibe as a craft brewery, but without the small pour. hopalleybrew.com
