Located on Main Street, Brickhouse Grille offers a great atmosphere to catch the game while devouring some delicious grub and washing everything down with an adult beverage or two.

Beer and sporting events have long gone hand-in-hand. If you’re looking to throw back a few craft beers with some friends while your team takes on a foe, Wild Leap is the place to go. This award-winning brewery is renowned for exceptional suds of several different varieties—including IPAs, ales, stouts, porters and goses. But don’t worry, if someone in your crew isn’t the biggest fan of beer, Wild Leap also offers house-crafted vodka and specialty cocktails for which they’ve also become known. TVs for games are located in the tasting room, but in between innings, halves or periods, you can enjoy your libation(s) in the spacious courtyard—possibly even to the tune of some live music!
Can’t watch a big game without crushing some pizza and/or wings? You’re in luck: Karvelas Pizza Co. has both!

Pair your pizza with a batch or two of regular or boneless wings tossed in one of 13 unique sauces and now it’s really a game day! Of course, Karvelas’ great selection of beer can also add to the merriment of your team rising to victory.
