7 Monks Taproom - Traverse City, MI

For the first time in the history of our "friends vacation" the kids took a day trip without the parents.  We're all over 21 now (I'm talking to you Ber) so we decided to do lunch and some wine tasting.  7 Monks Taproom for lunch and beer was perfect!  I like lighter beers so I had one of the ciders that they had on special.  Their beer menu is extensive, with 46 beers on tap, and I'm positive you'd find something you like.
We started by sharing the meat and cheese board.  It was awesome, and had all kinds of goodies.  Brie, Gorgonzola, jelly, mustard, olives, prosciutto, rabbit sausage.  Delish! 
Crostinis, crackers, seasonal fruit, a pretty complete sample if you ask me!
C and I shared the chicken pizza, with pineapple and Gorgonzola cheese.  It was amazing.  They make their menu everyday pending what fresh ingredients they have to use.  I could really tell the difference in the food, it was so great! 
Had to take a picture of the mac and cheese, which someone else ordered.  I even got to taste it, the cheesiest!
Two beers each and lunch and we walked out pretty happy campers!

  1. I never would have thought of it, but Gorgonzola and pineapple was a delicious combination. That Mac and cheese was spectacular too. It inspired me to try and make my own with mascarpone and pancetta. A great afternoon all around with great people :)
