News & Events

  • News

    Our longtime Bartender Bob Garrity (BG) is packing up and moving to  Florida.  Come and bid him adieu on his final 2 weeks at Poor Henry’s!  Best of luck on your next endeavors!  
      Big changes are happening at Poor Henry’s as we head into fall.  We have a new chef with a focus on beer inspired specials along with some of our old stand-by’s to go along with our extensive craft beer menu.  We have added 4 more taps and revamped our older beer tower because who doesn’t want more beer.  Keep a look out for upcoming events and beer dinners!
      Update We have begun to source produce from local farms.  One farm in particular (Godlewsky Farms) has been most helpful and are as close to “organic” as you can get without the USDA Certification.  There are no pesticides or herbicides.  We can attest to that because because there are 3 foot tall weeds and flying &  jumping insects and many praying mantises in the tomato fields as well as stinging nettle (ouch!)  Tomato season is still going and will continue until the frost.  We pick up different varieties of squash and other seasonal veggies as well.

Beer Pairing Guide

Beer and food is a match made in heaven, but not all beer does not go with all food. Let’s start with your favorite beer and learn what it’s excellent food counterpart is.


Deep and smooth, dark roasted malt makes this a great refresher to cleanse very saucy foods from the pallet, prepping you for the next bite.


Irish Corned Beef

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich


Light Bodied, and refreshing. This beer is gently hopped with German or Czechoslovakian hops with a light malt flavor. It’s best served with lighter foods such as fish or chicken.



Pale Ale/India Pale Ale

First brewed for British trade ships to have a sustainable beer using hops as a preservative. This beer tends to hold strong aromatics and bitter flavors from the hops. Best paired with spicy or sweet foods.

Cajun Salmon

Berkshire Bone In Pork Chop 


Though only a style of brewing that uses bottom fermenting yeast. Lagers tend to have a very clean and crisp taste that Americans have grown to love. A lighter beer that deserves works well with lightly flavored foods.


Chicken & Broccoli

Belgium / Strong Beers

Commonly these types of brews can overpower some foods, so it’s best to have a meal that is beer forward and food second. Lightly fried dishes such as Fish and chips are a good backseat.

Fish & Chips

Cheese Ravioli

Wheat/Fruit Beer

A very common beer among timid or taste forward beer drinkers. These beers add a 4th ingredient to the brewing process to pull out extra flavor subtleties, and smooth off any overwhelming flavors. A great pick for most burgers or complex foods.

Hamburger – Cheeseburger – Bacon Cheeseburger 

14oz. NY Strip Steak
