Muddy Waters Coffeehouse

The Bee's Knees

The Bee's Knees was created by one of Muddy Waters' talented baristas, Michael Huffman and is made using a special cold brew made from their very own specific coffee blend, roasted in-house. Rich espresso adds depth to the flavor and it is lightly sweetened with spiced cream and local honey giving a unique texture and appearance. Many things make The Bee's Knees unique including locally sourced honey that supports local beekeepers. As delicious and perfect as it is black, this new addition to the menu showcases their amazing cold brew and offers a refreshing drink for warm weather!

Paradiso Roma Ristorante

The Greenhouse

Seven Sounds Brewing Company

The Sippin' Sour

This craft kettle sour, brewed with dragon fruit, passion fruit, & pineapple infused with the light bubbles of Prosecco will tantalize your taste buds. Blending Prosecco into the kettle sour lightens the body, boosts the sweetness, improves the carbonation profile, and increases the alcohol. (Heads up, the kettle sour blending options will change throughout the year, next blackberry and then pink guava!) It's the perfect merger of the wine and beer worlds. This unique drink swaps the tradional orange juice which exhibits elements of acidity, sweetness, and citrus fruits for the kettle soured beer which shares common elements of tart acidty and sweet fruit.
