comfort foods, such as spatzle, Brussel sprouts, Italian sausage and poutine. Lighter options for those who prefer to eat vegetarian will also be available, such as falafel pita and escarole salad. The menu was specially designed by Severino to complement East End's brews, including its flagship ale Big Hop.
East End Brewing Company has long hosted a fleet of food trucks that change daily, but has never included any in-house food of its own.
“Scott and I have been friends for a long time,” Severino says, in a press release. “His beer has been a presence on the menus at Cure and Morcilla since we opened our doors, so in a way it feels like we have been collaborating for ages. We’ve talked about working together on a project for years, so when he approached me with this opportunity, I just couldn’t say no.”
Plans are to open in spring 2018.
