Earl's Beer & Cheese

Hours:MONDAY11:00AM to 12:00AM
Perfect For:LunchSports!

The deer wall mural at Earl’s might make you feel like you’ve been teleported to a cabin in the woods and if you’re anything like us, the mac and cheese will just make you generally happy. Don’t miss the Earl’s taco, which is a fried scallion pancake shell filled with pork. Wash it all down with one of their craft beers on tap and if you grab a seat at the communal table, you’ll have direct view of their TV which plays all the Sunday games.

Food Rundown

Beer Cheese

A spreadable, cheddar based cheese that’s made with house lager and served with fresh garlic and toasted bread. So good.

Spicy Tomato Soup

If it’s chilly out, you can’t really beat the combo of a beer and spicy, gingery tomato soup.

Earl’s Taco

Don’t even bother with the knife and fork, the only way to eat this massive “taco” filled with pulled pork, cheese, radish, and other goodness is to take a bite and pass it on to whoever you’re with.

Grilled Cheese

There are three different kinds of grilled cheese here, but the one you absolutely must order comes with pork belly, kimchi, potato chips, and a fried egg on toasted sourdough. The more traditional one with mozzarella, miso mayo, potato chips, and pickles on an english muffin is incredible as well.

Corned Beef Melt

If the corned beef sandwich is on the menu, make sure you order it. It’s a glorious combo of slow cooked meat, melted swiss, and sautéed onions with grain mustard on buttery toast. You want it.
