Equilibrium Brewery’s Taproom, Beer Garden, and Bonfire Restaurant offers a selection of onsite bottles, 22 draft lines, and 2 nitro lines to complement Equilibrium Bonfire’s delicious BBQ from its twin massive smokers and twin live fire grills. We also offer local wines, ciders, and soft drinks. Fire is primal. Fire extends daylight, provides heat, wards off bad cats and snakes, and gives us safe food to eat. This critical survival tool carved our evolutionary path and led humans to socialize around a place where they felt safe, warm, and fed. Fostering social cohesion with live fire will be a main theme in our taproom. We consider this a shared space, and we’ve chosen to represent this symbolically with the concept of a bonfire.

Ordering Drinks and Food

The experience at Bonfire was crafted to be casual and approachable. We want guests to feel like they’re at a backyard BBQ or at a cookout on a friend’s porch, and we’ve opted to keep things as simple as possible. Upon arrival, sit wherever you’d like. We have draft menus printed with the day’s offerings, and you can place drink orders at the bar with one of our staff members who will assist you and talk you through our beers.Food menus are located on the barrel near the food counter, where you can watch your barbecue get sliced in front of you while we prepare the rest of your order. When your order is all set and ready to be picked up at the counter, we’ll let you know! If you have any issues, please see one of our friendly staff members!

Dog Policy

Do we allow dogs in our beer garden?? The answer to one of the most frequently asked questions is, YES! We love seeing pups in the beer garden hanging with their beer loving owners. Although we cannot allow dogs in the brewery taproom due to food safety regulations, they are surely welcome to hang outside! Keep bringing pups like Tommy here by, we love to see it!
