New beer alert! We’ve just added Young Master Ales Fleeting Clouds to the menu. Evoking the leisurely meander of fluffy clouds, this wheat beer is delightfully smooth and refreshing. Brewed with an elegant grain bill of flaked and malted wheat as the base, Fleeting Clouds is infused with Mandarin Orange Peel and scented with fresh ground coriander seeds. It has a hazy gold hue, pillowy mouthfeel, and citrus-forward effervescence, making it incredibly crushable.

National Garlic Day

Now here’s a holiday we can get into! We use garlic in so many dishes on our menu. Not only is it a great addition to any recipe, but there are also plenty of health benefits! Garlic contains compounds with potent medicinal properties. It can protect against illnesses like the common cold. It can help reduce blood pressure and improve cholesterol levels. Enjoy two of our favorite dishes:
1. Garlic Flavored Okra
2. Garlic Calamari

National Tea Day

Drinking tea is an ancient practice in China. Scholars believe people in the Yunnan Province in south China were the first to drink tea, which they considered a form of medicine. Once people started sipping brewed tea leaves, the practice spread across China and eventually across all of Asia. Today, 60 countries, including the United States, grow tea.
To celebrate National Tea Day on April 21st, consider sipping one of our many Numi Teas. We love the Chinese Breakfast for a morning pick-me-up and the ginger lemon for a soothing and comforting beverage. We also proudly use tea in many of our cocktails:
1. Sticky Rice Old Fashioned (Bourbon, Coconut Rum, Pu Erh Sticky Rice Tea, Angostura)
2. South of the Sea (Gin, Mango, Green Tea, Soda)
