They say the only thing better than beer is more beer, but they tend to say it super obnoxiously and loudly because all they've got in them is beer. Mixing food with the beer, The Bad Apple.
From the team behind Menagerie and Cooper's, TBA is a comfortable neighborhood tavern decked with stained glass, murals of wintry trees, and a dim fireplace'd game room/lounge (shuffleboard, pinball, and so forth) featuring a well-curated selection of about 60 brews, with a dozen on tap (North Coast Pranqster and Allagash White), that often do double duty in the food itself, but never Beerio's, because that's your breakfast. Suds-laden sammies range from the Lucky Duck, a grilled cheese gussied up with St. Louis Kriek cured duck confit, to Beer Can Chicken (w/citrus mayo on herbed foccacia) flavored with Wittekerke, to a childhood-evoking PB&J spiked with Lindeman's Framboise jam, the perfect lunchtime snack if you want stuff to get really real at dodgeball. Beer also makes its presence felt in the burgers (prepped by a famed NYC butcher who's friends with the owners) like the Ole Imperial topped with Gonzo Imperial Porter-glazed mushrooms and served on an English muffin, the Black 'N Blue, slathered with a Belgian ale blue cheese, and the "Beer-naise" topped Steak Frites, which is French for "Seriously, you need mayo too?".
Because it's important to start things off right, even the apps contain some distinct brewed elements, from Big Johnnie's Li'l Hammies (swiss and special sauce-covered ham sliders with a distinct Ebel's Weiss crust), to cheese curds served with homemade buttermilk ranch that're battered in "hop and honey", because they also say that everything's better with ranch, and they're absolutely blaaaaugh.
