Their name is deceiving – actually they have over 200 Beers to choose from with 45 LOCAL craft brews on tap! When it comes to food, their burgers are awesome and one of them – well, it’s a bit intimidating. More on that in a bit.

Their craft brews are vast served at a chilly, perfect 36 degrees for optimum flavor and enjoyment!
Sure they are about the beer, but ya’ can’t have beer without food! ’99 Bottles’ food is simply amazing. A vast menu with something for everyone’s taste – including custom made sausages made locally. For seafood, try the Fish and chips. Or for the kids, a full- menu awaits.
On the healthier side, their fresh salads are made from LOCALLY grown leaves and spinach. But the item that caught out eye was the intimidating ‘Keggar Burger!’ 2 lbs. of beef that you could dare to devour by yourself. It’s HUGE!! Only a super human could enjoy it all in one setting. We recommend you split with friends on the pet friendly patio!

So how do the Brits do with the fusion of Pub Atmosphere and The Good Ole’ American Burger? FANTASTIC.
Although they do have the popular fish and chips on the menu, their most popular item is the Brit Burger! They start with 1/3 lbs. Black Angus Beef. (Get it grilled Medium for optimum flavor) with a perfect balance of Bacon, Cheddar Cheese, topped with red ripe tomatoes making it a great balanced burger! Delicious and tasty!!
For those who are not watching their waist lines (c’mon, you’re at a Burger joint, live a little will ya?), you’ve got to ask for a side of ranch sauce to dip those Brit Arms steak fries in before devouring. They are dying to be drowned!
