Lenten Fish Fry Fridays!

Now is the time of year when many reflect on their abundant blessings by making small sacrifices. Lenten sacrifice, even though traditionally is a Christian ritual, has permeated many facets of American culture. Whether you give up a favorite luxury item like chocolate, or if you go a more traditional route, we at the tavern admire your discipline. For our more orthodox patrons who abstain from eating meat on Fridays during the season, we”re offering our Fish-Fry Platter.  Two large pieces of hand-battered, golden-fried, north-Atlantic haddock, served up with fries and coleslaw helps take the sting out of your weekly sacrifice. Our fried fish has won us awards in the past, so celebrate the Lenten season, and your self-control, with us at Street Meet. Any of our seafood is also available on our salads for a healthier choice; and we can also grill or blacken your order if fried foods aren”t your cup of tea. Street Meet, the ideal place for a Friday night out — regardless of liturgical season. Check us out on Facebook for daily updates!

Current Craft Beer Line-Up

Here at Street Meet, we believe change is a good thing, and nothing embodies that more at the tavern than our beer selection. Whether it’s seasonal beers or small-batch releases, keeping it fresh and new with craft-brews from across the country is something we take pride in.

Recently we had Bell’s Hopslam double-IPA in twelve-ounce bottles. A delicious beer with grapefruit, hop-bitterness, and floral notes at the forefront of its taste-profile, it conceals its high ABV (10%) with a well-rounded and clean drinking flavor. This beer is only available in February, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on a case for our sophisticated drinking crowd.

Another favorite here is from Bell’s brewing. Their “Two-hearted” IPA is available all year and is one of our best-selling craft brews. Less intense than its double-IPA counterpart, this beer has earthier and fruitier notes on the palate than one might expect.

Caldera brewing from Ashland Oregon also has two beers in our craft brewing line-up. Their IPA is most definitely their flagship beer, but their APA is becoming more and more popular with Hilton Head craft beer enthusiasts. The American Pale Ale boasts a flavor that is refreshing, citrusy and crisp — perfect for an island!

If Stouts are more typical of a selection for your beer drinking hobby, have no fear, we here at Street Meet carry Victory Storm King. An American Double Stout at 9.1% alcohol, Storm King is not for the faint of heart. With its rich coffee, toffee, and chocolate notes, this beer is most popular during the colder winter months.  Victory Hop-devil IPA also makes frequent cameo appearances on tap here at the tavern.

Perhaps dark beers aren’t your forte — not to worry — we carry a delicious brew from Avery brewing in Boulder C.O. White Rascal is one of the tastiest Belgian-white style beers a drinker could ever ask for. Orange notes, coriander, brew spices, and citrus combine with a light body and texture for a true summertime favorite.

Additionally, on tap, we carry Sam Adam’s seasonal brews. Whether its Oktoberfest season, or time for winter lager we stay committed to pouring one of the originals when it comes to craft beer. Currently, Cold Snap, Sam Adam’s winter-wheat beer is available until mid-march when the transition to spring occurs.

Another tap of our available six pours craft beer as well. While today it’s Victory Hop Devil, tomorrow it could be Freehouse Brewing’s Green Door U.S.D.A. Organic IPA from Charleston S.C, or perhaps Stone I.P.A. from our friends out in San Diego.

So if you’re looking to enjoy a tasty craft beer instead of the typical lite-beer so commonly found in bars across America, stop by Street Meet the American Tavern, because variety is the spice of life.

HopSLAM!

Did you know its double-IPA season here at the tavern? One of our favorite brewers is Bells brewing, based in Comstock Michigan. Recently they released their highly allocated and highly sought after ‘HopSlam’ double-IPA. This craft creation comes in at a whopping 10% alcohol by volume, but surprisingly, it possesses a balanced flavor and body. Craft-beer on Hilton Head is at an all-time high when it comes to popularity, and at Street Meet we’re proud of our selection. Even at this high ABV the beer retains an easy drinking personality, with hops and pine at the forefront of its taste profile. Only available during the winter brewing months, this double-IPA is always in high demand. Luckily, we were able to snag a case or two for the tavern. We’re selling twelve ounce bottles here at the bar for $7.50, cheaper than anybody on the block, because we believe everyone has to get a taste of this stuff before it’s gone! Check out HopSlam on Bell’s online brewing profile and find out what you’ve been missing.

Stupid Cupid!

Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone, and in fact, we at Street Meet are more interested in all of the singles rather than couples out there this year. Cupid is stupid, so come and celebrate single’s awareness day here at the Tavern. Blind Archer shots will be $4.50 all night long, because with cupids aim, he may as well be blind. House vodka, flavored vodka, and jager bombs are only $3.00 and are available with an accompanying hug upon request. Take the sting out of another year alone with the best late-night-bar staff on the island — Neil will be pouring mind-erasers for $7.00 if you really need to forget something in particular. Street Meet the American Tavern, where comfort-food, cocktails, and camaraderie collide.

Super-Bowl Sunday Pig-Roast!

Cleveland may not have made the super-bowl this year, but we”ve still got reason to celebrate here at the tavern. We”re roasting a pig, top to bottom, and offering a full buffet with all the fixings for $14.95 and kids eat for $7.95. There”s going to be super-bowl prizes and giveaways all game long.  Street Meet will open up for business at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday for our full menu, and by around 5:00 the pig will be ready for everyone to enjoy. The forecast is for highs in the upper sixties and clear skies — so regardless of what”s happening in New Jersey you can spend this outdoor super-bowl outdoors with us at Street Meet! Come on out and enjoy our big-screen TVs and world class football food on America”s favorite Sunday.  Street Meet The American Tavern: home of the Islands best late-night bar and best hot dog.

 

 

Small Batch Saturdays

Everyone knows that small batch bourbon is superior to its mass-produced counterpart. With a smaller batch comes more attention to detail, precision, and quality. The same is true for most anything made with care in small quantities. Here at the American Tavern, we take pride in what some locals have been calling, Small batch Saturdays. Recently, we’ve decided to make two specialty soups in very small batches on saturday mornings. With these soups, craftsmanship and quality-time are a must, (hence why we can only do this once a week!) and saturday morning, for us at the tavern, is no longer about cartoons. We’d rather get up early and start stirring soups than sleep in. A clam chowder to die for, an egg drop soup with fried wonton, a lentil and sausage soup, and an expertely seasoned vegetable soup have all been on the menu thus far. None of these exceptional soups will last long, so Saturday lunch is a must during these cold months. Street Meet, where we still make what you love by hand.

Bed-Time Browns

With the end of the regular season this week, the Browns will unfortunately finish below .500 again and miss the playoffs. However, since its Bed-time for the Browns, we’re buying a round of beers for whoever comes out this week dressed in their pajammas. Christmas pajammas, browns pajammas, even kids pajammas, all will do — as long as they aren’t Steeler pajammas. Let’s end the season on a high note, with free beer, a Browns win, and, most importantly, a Steeler loss that will knock them out of playoff contention. We’ll see you at the Tavern!

Top-Shelf Bourbon

Did you know that we here at Street Meet are Bourbon and American Whisky enthusiasts? In the true spirit of America, the tavern keeps a large collection of high-quality whisky on the shelves which is all proudly distilled, bottled, and consumed right here in America.

Booker’s is the best product available from the men and women behind Jim Beam, which is the world’s most popular bourbon. It’s high proof (128.5), does little to diminish the hearty flavor of charred oak and sweet corn in every sip. You can enjoy a glass up, with rocks, or a splash of water for just $9.00

Four Rose’s single barrel is another exceptional bourbon on the top shelf here at the tavern. A single barrel means that all of the whiskey in a given bottle came from one select barrel. Axiomatically, this means that only the finest and high quality barrels are used in these bourbons since they will not be blended with other barrels. A tasty Four Rose’s will only set you back $8.75.

Maker’s Mark is an industry standard when it comes to consistency and quality. A Maker’s on the rocks costs a mere $6.75, and the dilution of the bourbon by the ice tames the smokey texture of this whisky’s finish nicely.

Woodford Reserve small-batch bourbon is another excellent seller here at Street Meet. Priced at $7.50, its an excellent alternative to Four Rose’s. While it is a blended whisky, the smaller batches also requires distillers to be choosy with the barrels used to age the product to create a consistent and powerful taste.

Basil Hayden’s is another selection which we are proud to offer. When Basil Hayden first distilled whiskey from a corn mash George Washington was president. Steeped in tradition, the Basil Hayden method of fermenting, distilling, and aging bourbon remains true to the ways of the past. Also priced at $8.75 it’s become a favorite among many locals.

Bulleit 95  Rye may not be a bourbon as it’s made from a rye grain mash, but that doesn’t mean it is any less delicious. With a flavor that’s round, sweet, and sugary, it’s the perfect desert for a meal filled with beers and bratwurst. At $7.50 the value is hard to beat.

In addititon to our top-shelf bourbons, we also carry Jim Beam white-label, Wild Turkey 101, and Wild Turkey Rye for those with less expensive palettes. If you’re in the mood for old-fashioned, American whisky, look no further than Street Meet the America Tavern.
