It’s winter, snow is on the ground… time for bonfires at Scratch!
Mark your calendar for Saturday, February 2nd for our annual Botanical Beer and Bonfire Festival. This is a celebration of all things wood-fired and herbal. We’ll feature 13 beers brewed over a fire or that showcase the bounty of southern Illinois plants, including 6 stein-brewed beers brewed with granite rocks heated in a blazing wood fire. Fires will be stoked on the patio and we’ll be serving a hot soup special all day: borscht with our garden-grown beets and your choice of hearth bread (vegetarian/vegan and sausage varieties will both be available). Unlike in years past, this will not be a ticketed event. Just come enjoy a taproom full of special beers, food, and warm conversation. Our full food menu will also be available.
