|Keep your gender binary out of my cocktail.|
When we first visited the Freehouse
back in January, our initial impression was less than glowing. Maybe a lot less. Since then the brewpub has been fine-tuning the things it does best: appetizers (the hard cider-battered cheese curds with quince jam disappeared very quickly at a recent happy hour), brunch, and drinks. The Freehouse's cocktails have proved to be a pleasant surprise, including signature breakfast drink the Wake-Up Call
. The bar program has a strong enough point of view to differentiate itself in a neighborhood that has a high standard for beverage trends.
But there's one thorn we just weren't able to ignore, one thing that made us think much too long and hard about liquor and ice and garnish in a glass -- an experience that should be enjoyable rather than infuriating. We're talking about the His and Hers Old Fashioneds.
