 Rivertown Brewery Customers To See New Food Items On Menu

A Monroe business is brewing up some changes to its menuю

Customers who come to the Rivertown Brewery & Barrel House will notice some major changes with focuses on the slow-smoked meats and an expansion of the barbecue craft.

According to Rivertown CEO Lindsey Roeper, the menu is introducing the Burnt Ends entrée, The Lasso, which is a slow-smoked German/Polish Sausage and the infamous St. Louis style ribs. The change is in celebration of its two years in business.

The restaurant, taproom and brewery opened on Jan. 20, 2017.

The Slow-Smoked Burnt Ends is one of the six slow-smoked entrees on the menu. It uses a whole Angus beef-brisket that will smoke for 18 hours over hickory wood and is braised in the house sweet and savory sauce. It comes with two side dishes.

Other menu changes include an array of starters, burgers, sandwiches, salads and others.

It’s also offering a Rapid Lunch menu from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with dishes that take 10 minutes or less to make. It comes with four food choices – Street Taco Duo, Chili N Fries, Slow Smoked Jack Fruit and Slow Smoked Pulled Pork.

Chef Zac Payton is behind the new Rivertown menu. Roeper said Payton, who is the culinary development director, has worked hard to bring more delectableness to the Rivertown menu.

Payton said he wants to expand and deepen the barbecue roots of the restaurant – to develop an atmosphere where people are excited about the product because of the time and craft put into it.
