Luck, our happy place in Trinity Groves, celebrated is one year anniversary recently and just this week announced a new Winter menu that will surely cut through the chill in the air.

This hold true with the most recent menu update.

This particular brew is a Belgian-style dubbel. Balanced, smooth and malty sweet with a hint of spice from the Belgian yeast.   Continue reading
