We are open every day from noon until 2 AM. Our kitchen is open until 1AM each night.  And our patio is open until 10pm every evening (weather permitting).

We are closed Independence Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas.


We do not take reservations except for our beer dinner events. Our host runs the waitlist when we are full in the evening, and will accept a cellphone number and call when your table is ready. We do not accept names for the waitlist over the phone.

Name Explanation

The Belgian Trappist monks were arguably the first craft brewers. Though we are not a Belgian restaurant, our name pays homage to these artisans with a reference to their brewing vessel: the kettle.
