Digital Storytelling and Visitor Analytics for City and Cultural Institutions
This 4th street brewpub is anything but common. The Butcher and the Brewer aims to bring people together through the dining experience, and you'll notice the dedication immediately. The restaurant has public house seating and a focus on shared plates to ensure that guests have every chance to interact.
True to its name, Butcher and Brewer indeed has a brewmaster and a butcher on staff, as well as an executive chef, chef de cuisine, and a house charcutier. Guests also have insight into the creative process of the food and drink here. In addition to a view of the beer tanks, the in-house butchers' work is also displayed using a see-through meat locker. All beers are brewed on-site, and the rotating menu always has more than half a dozen choices for you. Overall the atmosphere is casual and inviting. Feel free to lean over to the guest's next to you to ask about that beer or appetizer they're grazing on - that's the whole point!
Not surprisingly, the meat dishes are center stage here. You can begin with classic appetizers like pork rinds, bacon-wrapped dates, or even a charcuterie board. When it comes to the main entree, both the House-ground burgers and the pork shank are sure to delight any carnivore. However, there is lighter fare including fish and vegetarian options. The shrimp and grits or mac and cheese are both favorites here.
