A commemorative brew named after the great flood of '93. This is a bronze colored beer made with the highest quality malts and specially chosen hops to give this beer that extra hop bitterness with a delightful hop bouquet. A true "English Ale." This name comes from the notorious red light district of some 100 years ago in which Front Street Brewery is located. An extra dark, almost black bottom brew, smooth with a slight coffee flavor, achieved by the use of highly roasted barley and black malts. This beer is known as the espresso of beers. Bucktown soon becomes the favorite of the adventuresome. Bucktown Stout

My go-to for years was their fish-n-chips but I've sense branched out into other tasty menu items. This is one of those restaurants that every time I eat there, I think - why don't we eat here more often?!

Always something new on tap. Good atmosphere with views of the river. Have enjoyed their burgers, Reuben and fish tacos. Homemade tortilla chips are great. River flooded, but not impacting business. Outdoor seating available
