Manchester Drinks for Brunch: Skip the Mimosa & Drink A Beer!

manchester drinks

We’ll admit that we’re not the first to serve beer with breakfast here at Stark Brewing, but as far as Manchester drinks go, beer with breakfast is still considered a novelty. While many breweries in America haven’t entirely caught on, we think it makes perfect sense to enjoy a brew or two with breakfast, and we know we’re not alone! Here are a few reasons why you should skip the mimosa and choose a beer with brunch (and yes, we still serve $5 Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s for all you brunch traditionalists out there).

The Boozy Brunch

To date, brunch has typically been served on Sundays, with a focus on large portions and lots of cocktails. Think pancakes and Irish coffee. However, “brunch” as we know it in America is quite different from the Sunday breakfasts around the world. Yet, one thing is for sure – some type of alcoholic beverage is always served (Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s, Irish Coffee–you get the gist). But what about beer?

Beer + Breakfast = Bliss

We may be on the cusp of a trending breakfast tradition here at Stark, but that doesn’t mean it’s anything new! While Americans may prefer a refreshing cocktail or a strong cup o’ joe with their bacon and eggs, there’s an extensive tradition of drinking beer with breakfast in parts of Europe like Germany and Austria. This doesn’t just stop at the Sunday brunch, however – in Bavaria, for example, they enjoy a mid-morning beer to take the edge off before noon.

Did you know? In Bavaria, drinking Hefeweizen (HEF-uh-vite-zen) is a tradition called  frühschoppen! This is the American equivalent of Sunday brunch, but instead of mimosas, Bavarians drink beer! The other option is to drink a beer and eat a filling snack (pretzels, anyone?) during the mid-morning workday. Their reasoning? Beer is good for digestion. And while the jury’s still out on this, we won’t disagree!

We visited on our travels, what an Amazing find!!! The food was delicious and the services was friendly. The owner even came over to chat and check in. They offered water and a treat for our service dog. The food was cooked to perfection. Tasty and well priced. The Puppy Pilsner was very good.
