Raise your hand if you’re a hardcore ale lover! A hard-working individual who celebrates the end of a long week and the start of the weekend with a hoppy IPA or a hearty Belgian ale. Lagers have their place in your life, but the tried and true way to truly quench your thirst is by downing richly flavorful ales.
Many restaurants and pubs have a few favorite ales in stock, but Heidi’s House by The Side of The Road is one of the only restaurants on the Upper East Side to combine organic, locally-sourced food with an extensive collection of bottled artisanal beers. The restaurant specializes in ales, having an entire menu devoted to seasonal craft ales of all styles, from malty Sour Ales to rich stouts.
- Begin with one of the more popular IPAs, such as the Lagunitas IPA with citrus nuances or the hoppy Harpoon IPA and Otter Creek Black IPA beers.
- Although it is technically spring, the weather hasn’t exactly been mild, so feel free to sip one of the restaurant’s cooler weather brews, such as the Kelpie Seaweed Ale, the popular Left Hand Milk Stout -- perfect for pairing with a chocolate souffle -- or the Arrogant Bastard Ale with pine notes and chestnut brown color.
- Belgian Ales are always in fashion. Sip the popular Flying Dog Raging Bitch Belgian Style IPA or try the more traditional Delirium Tremens Belgian Ale and Troubadour Blond Belgian Ale.
Fresh, locally sourced restaurant dishes, classic comfort food recipes, and a well-researched menu of ales come together to provide an unparalleled pub experience on the Upper East Side at Heidi’s House by The Side of The Road. What could pair better with an English muffin grass fed beef burger than an exquisite copper ale?
