  • I really enjoy Uncommon Ground - the few times I have been here for brunch the service has been exceptional and the food delicious as well. The first time I went here we had a group of about 8 people which they accommodated very nicely. We ended up staying for HOURS - I think we tried every drink on the menu twice and many of the entrees. Luckily we were in the back room and they did not rush us out at all.

    My most recent time, just 2 of us sat at the bar by the fireplace - it was a cozy nice brunch (much shorter than the first experience) but equally an enjoyable.

    Greenstar Brewing’s Black Currant Kolsch
    Before this year’s Beer Under Glass, the most I knew about Greenstar is that they’re from the Uncommon Ground team, they’re nearly entirely organic and.... well, that’s about it. After last night, I can tell you that they have an extremely satisfying black currant kolsch. Interestingly, there were more than a few kolsch (kolsch-es? What is the plural of kolsch?) being poured last night, and Greenstar’s was the first I had. Every other one had to live up to that first pour, and none did. The character of the beer stood out—it was a beer first with fruit flavor complementing it, as opposed to just one big massive jammy hunk of indelicate flavor with alcohol in it. It was light, crisp and refreshing, like smearing some fresh preserves on an airy water cracker.
