As our regular guests know, 1844 House is a small historic farm house that has been converted into a restaurant. It originally opened in 1985 as French’s 1844 House and operated for 15 years before it closed. Jenny and I bought it in 2006, reopened it as 1844 House, An American Bistro and have pretty much kept it as it was. Our cozy bar was built by a local craftsman and is just large enough to hold the existing equipment which did not include a beer tap system. We have always carried a great variety of NY state and national craft beers in bottles to complement our award winning wine list. However, with Jenny’s brother Nathan Drake about to open his new brewery in Dickinson Center, NY (about 45 minutes down 11b, towards Malone) Township 7 Brewery. We have done reorganizing of our bar equipment and installed a new tap system that will soon feature Township 7 Beers. We are very excited about his endeavor and cannot wait to offer his great beers here at 1844 House.
While we are patiently waiting for NY State to issue his permit, we have brought in some delicious craft beer to take advantage of our new tap system. We are currently featuring Southern Tier 2X IPA, Ithaca Beer Company’s Apricot Wheat Ale, and Six Point Brewery (Brooklyn, NY) Crisp Lager.
We invite you to come join us for some great “Farm to Table” cuisine and delicious craft beer.
