new menu items

Let’s start with out snaaaacks!

naan breadWhite beans are the star of two of our new dishes! Check them out in White Beans + Fennel, a plate chockful of fresh flavors like grapefruit vinaigrette, cool cucumber, and mini toasted naan breads (see left). Our other white bean dish is our White Bean Hummus. Unlike traditional hummus made with chick peas, we added a twist to ours by adding white beans. This creamy creation is topped with garlic, olives, and Calicutts zesty za’atar seasoning!

bottlehouse dogChips are a must try menu items, with three unique flavors! Try Lebanese style BBQ, Sweet Pea and Mint or buttermilk-dill Ranch Potato Chips. Each basket has it’s own flavorful flare you won’t want to miss out on…

And of course our famed Bottlehouse Dog is on the menu (see right)! Loaded with porter beer cheese sauce, pickled banana peppers + cauliflower, crushed potato chips, and green tomato jam, this mouthwatering hot dog is a fan favorite!

Pretzels + Pockets + Tots, oh my!

chocolate pull apart pretzelThere are three twists here, pretzel twists that is! Feeling savory? Grab a chunk of our Ham + Cheese Stuffed Pretzel Braid or Pizza Stuffed Pretzel Braid. Both include gooey cheeses and the best meats. Feeling sweet? Indulge in our Chocolate-Hazelnut Pull-Apart Pretzel (see left), smothered in white and milk chocolate and topped with crushed hazelnuts.

Our specialty tots are sure to make you beg for more! Our Hop Steak ‘Tot’-Chos are a play on nachos, but with tater-tots instead of chips(if you’re not craving tots, try these with York City Pretzel Co’s pretzel nuggs)! Complete with fire cheeto dust and red wine shaved steak, these cheeky tots are packed with flavor! At Grain + Verse, brunch doesn’t just happen on the weekends! Get a plate of our loaded Brunch Tots, topped with hickory smoked ham, a perfectly poached egg, hop-infused sausage, and cheese, cheese, cheese!

beer dough pocketCan’t forget our one-of-a-kind beer dough pockets! These creatively crafted, deliciously devilish, marvelously masterminded pockets are packed with your favorite flavors and brimming with the good stuff! The four different meaty fillings of pork belly, red wine shaved steak, fried chicken, and smoked salmon, work in perfect harmony with ingredients like hop roasted shallots, green tomato jam, and porter beer cheese sauce. Don’t forget Caputo Brothers cagliata as well! Is your stomach growling yet?

We still have your pizza covered!

We may only being doing 9 inch pizzas on our new menu, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t loaded to the brim with fresh, tasty ingredients! And don’t forget, they come as calzones or flatbreads too! We have the Meeeeats for you with a ‘zah covered in pepperoni, hop-infused sausage, and hickory smoked ham. Feeling something a little more herbivore? Grab a slice of Sun Salutation, a vegan mozzarella ‘zah with white wine braised fennel, kale + leeks.

white pieThat’s just two of the nine different pizzas we have going on. Other options include a ricotta and mozzarella lip licking Chef’s White Pie (see right), a fried chicken and smoked gouda topped ‘zah, or your classic sauce and cheese pizza.

Building your own is always an option as well! Choose from our wide selection of cheeses, meats, and veggies to create the perfect pie!

New Grain + Verse Menu and More!

Harrisburg Restaurant Beer New Menu

We’ve heard you as our customers and we’re making some big changes at Grain + Verse Bottlehouse. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be transitioning into an exciting new menu and altering our service style to better suit you, our customers! Get ready to try the new Grain + Verse Bottlehouse on July 19th!

TouchTunes lets you interact with your favorite music at your favorite places and customize what you hear! Don’t miss out on all the fun, stop by the new Grain + Verse!

Food for You

IMG_20170524_171321117One of the things we are very excited about is how our new menu includes more fabulous food and drink options! Over the past few weeks we have been previewing new menu items to give you a taste of the new Grain + Verse. We hope you’ve enjoyed the new food as much as we have!

Our new menu has a more diverse selection of food options that have been created to please everyone at the table. The new menu still has pizza of course, but now includes other delicious options such as tator tots, beer dough pockets, and shareable apps that everyone can dig into. We even have a specialty bottlehouse hot dog (look left)! The new menu will all be available on July 19th, so bring your friends and grab a bite!

**Pizza is a big part of the Grain + Verse Bottlehouse menu and with the creation of our new offerings we will only have 9 inch pizzas, the perfect size to order several different types and try them all! (On the new menu, 18 inch pizzas will no longer be available.)

What about drinks?

The way we do drinks is also changing! We will be adding in more taps for a total of 8, instead of the current 2 taps. The setup of our cooler is also being redone. We plan on cutting down on the number of beers in the cooler and instead adding in other beverage options, alcoholic and not. There will be cocktails available at the bottlehouse as well! Keep a look out for happy hour specials on our new beverage options!

For us to bring you these amazing new changes, we have to close for a few days in July. We will be closed: Monday July 10th; Monday July 17th, and Tuesday July 18th. We will officially open with our new menu on Wednesday, July 19th at 5pm.

Starting July 10th we will no longer have 18″ pizzas. Enjoy all of our delicious ‘zahs in the great 9″ size!

Make sure you stop by the new Grain + Verse to enjoy a great meal with friends!
