Shawnee Craft Beer Dinner



True to Nature, True to Craft

The Settlers Inn is delighted to welcome Shawnee Craft to the inn for a special beer and food pairing dinner on February 21. The Genzlinger and Kirkwood families have much in common, the love of the Arts and Crafts style, a commitment to sustainability and a passion for craft beers. It is a natural to combine our efforts to feature Food from here and Beer from near.

Chef Ben and our own beer expert, Tiffany Rogers, are pleased to welcome Timothy Meyers, Shawnee Craft “Brand Evangelist” who will be on hand to discuss the beers we will be sampling which includes:

Black IPA (a well hopped Black IPA – with a good deal of bitterness a great aperitif because it gets the gastric juices flowing and inspires a hearty appetite

Raspberry Blanche -A Witbier style with a generous helping of raspberries added. Tart yet sweet, this is great with lighter dishes and anything with red berries.

Session Porter -a velvety smooth porter that pairs well with charcuterie, cheeses, and chocolate.

Chestnut Braun -A hearty American Brown Ale with chestnuts added. Pairs well with main courses and heavier dishes. (Should be a natural in our Chestnut Tavern!)

Shawnee uses mostly organic ingredients, some that they grow themselves on site as well as honey from their Aviary.

Souper Bowl



Super Bowl or Souper Bowl




   February 2 does not have to be spent in front of a television watching the most sought after football game of the year. It would not be unAmerican to just say no to chips and salsa, pretzels and beer. You can actually get away from all of that – likely by yourself because no one will want to go with you. So what’s wrong with a little alone time? A little nourishment with a Soup Bowl and a good book, or an old movie on a DVD? Just do it! Nobody has to know your little secret that football is not your thing. At Settlers Inn and Ledges Hotel we will be your accomplice. We are offering the best available rooms at both hotels for a mere $95.00. You have to call the hotel to get this deal – Settlers Inn 570.226.2993 or Ledges Hotel 570.226.1337. So take the road less traveled and come and Soup Up.  BTW, your secret is safe with us..

Tasty ales at the Chestnut Tavern at Settler's

March is such a wonderful month- the whispers of spring can be heard and already the buds are starting to peak out of the thawed ground (was it ever frozen?).  As the warm weather slowly begins to blow our way, we look forward to seeing the many tulips bloom in our English Garden. Until then, we have lots of fun planned for the month to keep busy!

We’ve planned a couple of evenings this March in celebration of Celtic Heritage. We will host our first beer dinner of 2012 on Friday, March 9th. This dinner will feature delicious, ales paired with traditional Celtic dishes. If you enjoy good beer, this evening should not be missed!

The following Friday, March 16th, come down to Cocoon Coffee House for The Eve of St. Patrick’s traditional Irish dinner followed by traditional Irish music at Harmony Presents, Hawley’s newest performance space. If you haven’t had a chance to experience a performance at Harmony, this is a great opportunity to check it out! Reservations for this festive evening can be made online at Harmony’s website – please reserve by made by March 12th.

As we bid farewell to the winter that never was, come celebrate the Vernal Equinox and ring in Spring on March 23rd with our annual Vernal Equinox Dinner. Guests will enjoy an evening with a 5-course dinner that highlights the flavors of the season. As always, our menu will feature items from local growers and there will be some fabulous wines to taste.

As we awaken from winter’s slumber, be sure to get out and enjoy all there is to do in the country in early spring. Come celebrate the new season with us and take advantage of the warm weather!
