Get Toasty With Our

Winter's Nip Seasonal Items

Winter has officially arrived and ‘baby its cold outside!’ As Rock Bottom Brewery Restaurant prepares for the cold winter days and nights, we have brewed a seasonal beer to keep you warm, Winter’s Nip!

Winter’s Nip is a traditional ‘Porter’ style beer. The name “Porter” was first used in the 18th century from its popularity with the street and river porters of London. It was generally brewed with dark malts and matured in large vats (often holding several hundred barrels) for between six and eighteen months before being racked into smaller casks to be delivered to pubs. Today, the tradition of their Winter Porter lives on, but only through January 4th at Rock Bottom. So come in to our Brewery Restaurant and order up this full-bodied, dark Winter Porter. It tastes great with all the favorites on our seasonal menu, or just fine all by itself!

To enhance the flavors of our signature Winter’s Nip, we have designed a special seasonal menu featuring a starter, seven entrees and one dessert available from now until January 4th! Enjoy succulent treats such as an Appetizer Combo Brewer’s Feast that gives you a chance to sample favorite starters including Kobe Sliders, Seasoned Fries, Southwestern Chicken Egg Rolls and Fried Chicken Tenders with Sweet Magnolia Brown BBQ sauce and Sweet Chili sauce. Special entrees include the New York Steak and Tempura Shrimp Combo, a surf and turf featuring a grilled 8oz. New York steak with tempura shrimp served with sweet soy dipping sauce and house steak sauce; Blue Cheese Crust, and accompanied by steak fries and vegetables; and Macadamia Nut Crusted pan seared served with pineapple salsa, rice pilaf, and vegetables.

Now what would be the holidays be without a special dessert? You can also enjoy our buttery Pumpkin Cheesecake topped with whipped vanilla cream cheese drizzled with caramel sauce, which makes a fantastic finish to a winter feast.

In keeping with the seasonal festivities, Rock Bottom-goers can also toast to holiday spirits with the new Holiday Passion Martini, a refreshing seasonal martini featuring SKYY Infusions Passion Fruit Vodka, a splash of Cointreau and white cranberry juice topped with cranberries and a light sugar rim. Whether it’s the beer, food, specialty cocktail drinks or just getting out of the cold, Rock Bottom has it all…Great Food, Fresh Beer, and Good Times!
