The drink list includes Harpoon IPA, White Claw, City Roots Cider, Jacks Abby, Fiddlehead IPA, Mighty Squirrel, Springdale Sour Series, Narragansett Del Shandy, Goose Island and more.

Transactions will cashless with contactless ordering and payment via phones for each table; seating is limited to parties of up to six guests.
