At Rhetoric Brewing Company in addition to our delightful variety of wine, mead, cider and beer we also offer snacks, soda, and coffee. Guests are welcome to bring their own outside food, but no alcoholic beverages are allowed to be carried in. When the weather is right, we’ll have food trucks and live music on the premises so you can eat, drink and be merry.  We also have completed our outdoor patio for the summer nights when you’d rather enjoy outside!
