4204 Brewing Co. debuts craft cocktails topped with beer this fall along with a new food menu featuring upscale pub food and more.

4204 Main Street Brewing Co. can’t stop, won’t stop.

The growing brewery’s taproom location in west Belleville could soon become a destination for lunch and craft cocktails now that whiskey, vodka and new food options are on the menu.

“We are a brewery, but we wanted to make sure we offered different items for everybody,” 4204 spokeswoman Rebecca Wuest said. “We have a full bar, craft cocktails and our craft beer selection.”

Craft beer and cocktails come together on the new menu. The Bahama Mama, for example, is a sweet tropical drink topped with 4204’s Blood Orange Radler, a light lager blended with house made malt soda and blood orange puree. It’s the bartender’s twist on the classic drink.

What’s on the new menu?

The brewery’s expanded menu at the taproom includes fried bologna, Philly cheesesteak and daily $10 deals served with beer.

Later this fall, customers will be able to stop by the brewery’s taproom for lunch, but the new menu items will be available sooner.

Monday is steak night at the taproom, “T” stands for tacos on Tuesdays, Wednesday is all about shrimp, beef nachos will be available Thursdays, Friday customers can come in for fish, ribs are served on Saturday and wings on Sunday.

Fried green beans, chicken fajita nachos and loaded sidewinder fries topped with cheese sauce, seasoned taco meat sour cream, jalapenos and pico are on the new menu that Wuest describes as “upscale pub food.’”

As for fall beer, the brewery has teamed up with Eckert’s to bring a new pumpkin beer to the menu. The beer will only be available at the taphouse location later this month.

Cooler weather also means that the brewery’s “AsSalted Caramel Brown Ale” will be available soon.

A party to celebrate the release of the brew will be held Sept. 15 at 4204 W. Main St. For more information, call 618-416-7261.

4204 Main Street Brewing Co. has hired new brewers as they start to ramp up production.
