The Brewer’s Art

The award-winning beers at the Brewer’s Art in Mt. Vernon draw fans from all over, and the food definitely makes them want to stay. Mainstay house beers like Resurrection Ale and Beazly (formerly known as Ozzy before they received a cease and desist request from Ozzy Osbourne) pair well with bar menu items like the Roseda Farms cheeseburger, baked mac and cheese and their much-loved rosemary fries. The main bar is one of the most beautiful rooms in the city, and the downstairs bar is dark and mysterious.
