Easter Dinner at the Rogues' Harbor Inn 2014

Roasted Rack of Lamb with Swedish Hill Cabernet Franc

It's finally Easter and that means spring, warm weather foods & a new seasonal dinner menu at Rogues'. Our new spring offerings suggest beer and wine pairings as always plus dietary designation like GF for gluten free, vegan & vegetarian. We have: honey apricot Berkshire pork loin (GF), basil walnut pesto linguine (vegan), loaded steak fries with ale infused cheddar sauce, polenta and sun dried tomato salad (vegan, GF) and lots more. It's all on the web site Something wonderful for everyone. After all, locally sourced globally inspired cuisine offers plenty of options. Options are good.
But, this weekend it's all about Easter. Chef Anthony will be creating locally sourced traditional favorites like roasted rack of lamb with port wine demi-glace, candied sweet potatoes, ale and brown sugar glazed Berkshire ham and....giant carrot cake cup cakes. Yum.
We're hoping the daffodils bloom in time for the weekend. We'll see. But, either way we'll be serving Easter dinner from noon till 8 pm this Sunday, April 20.
Reservations Suggested (607) 533-3535 or

Saint Patrick's "Weekend" 2014 at Rogues'

I grew up around Boston, a very Irish city, the Celtics, Southie, yeah...Anyway, only the actual day, March 17, was St. Patrick's Day. Everyone went all out, all green, all beer, heaping plate of corned beef and cabbage, Irish fiddle music everywhere, dancing, the whole Irish enchilada as it were. It's a wicked big day.I loved it. But here it seems to be more of a weekend event, so we're going with it this year since St. Pat's falls on a Monday. Monday is an underwhelming day for such a jubilant holiday.
So, we declare it St. Patrick's weekend. Meaning, Corned Beef & Cabbage, Chocolate Guinness Pudding, Cheddar Potato Soup, and craft beer, lots and lots of craft beer will be served Saturday, Sunday and MONDAY, March 15, 16 & 17. Our brewers have even crafted their first IPA just for the occasion. Not an Irish brew by any means, but we think it goes well with corned beef and cabbage. So why not? Saturday isn't technically St. Patrick's day either...But we'll be wearing green and serving all our St. Pat's specials.
Can't wait. Wear Green. Eat Corned Beef. Drink Beer. Big, big fun. All weekend.
Andy, a Rogues' server, in full regalia

PINTS FOR PUPS, Our Annual SPCA Brew Fest Fundraiser 2014

Rosie & Jazzy
There are about a million reasons to love dogs. My families' two rescues are part of our family (two boxers, Jazzy's from the SPCA). I can't imagine life without them. I am grateful and in awe of Tompkin's County SPCA and all the hard work they do. Being a "no kill" shelter takes a lot of dedication, hard work and money. That's where we come in.
Every year we host a local micro brew fest which benefits the Tompkins County SPCA called, "Pints for Pups." This year's will be held Thursday, February 20,  from 6 - 10 pm at our restaurant and brew house. Generous local breweries joining us and pouring tastings: Bacchus Brewing, Band Wagon Brewing, Hopshire Farm Brewery, Rogues' Harbor Brewing Co., Roosterfish Brewing, Seneca Lodge Brewing and Wagner Brewing. We can not wait to try all the craft brews they're bringing. A $15 donation gets you samples from everyone. Wrist bands can be purchased at the door or at Rogues' Harbor Inn and the SPCA in advance.
There will also be live music. Joel Kirshner & Tu can Do from 6 - 9. Silent Auction will include lots of art work, dog and cat goodie packages from Ithaca Agway, sterling Buddy tag from the Jewlbox, gift cards from several restaurants including Rogues' and Kilpatricks, port wine from Ports of NY, and tons more. Plus, our chef is working on a beer inspired tasting menu which will features a sample of threeof our craft brews, one for each course for a set price. 10 % of dinner proceeds that evening will, be donated to the SPCA along with all proceeds from the beer tasting and silent auction.
Last year we raised over $3,500! It will be hard to top that, so please save the date and join us for beer, dinner and big fun.
