Yesterday was the the run down of all of our Williamsburg adventures–today is on to the food!
After such a delicious, filling meal Thursday night, we didn’t really need to eat as much as we did during our two days in Williamsburg, but there was just so much to try! Unfortunately, none of that included dining in actual Colonial Williamsburg because apparently holiday weekends require you to actually plan ahead and get reservations…Details. Plus, it will give us an excuse to head back again soon!
We started out on Friday at the AleWerks Brewing Company, a small, local brewery that makes colonial Williamsburg specific beer that they sell in their gift shops downtown as well as “normal” beer shipped around the state. The taproom was small, but inviting and full of tempting merchandise. Jeff and I did a tasting, which was fun, though I usually like more of a self-proctored tasting with a fact sheet than the beer lecture we got. Still, we were happy to be finding more local Virginia products!
We had originally planned to grab sandwiches at The Cheese Shop before heading over, but I decided to pack a bag lunch of Thanksgiving leftovers which ended up being a great thing since we didn’t get to Williamsburg till 2:30! We did end up braving the crowds for lunch there Saturday afternoon. The sandwich was delicious, though I didn’t realize it came without the usual lettuce + tomatoes + onions + other veggies without paying extra for their fancy add-ons. Next time, I’ll know better! The shop was too busy for us to find a table, but we were staying close enough to take our sandwiches back to the common room of the B&B. Totally spoiled, I know.
We ended up eating at the same restaurant–The DoG Street Pub–for dinner both Friday and Saturday nights. On Friday, we were lured there by the decently priced entrees and then on Saturday, we found our way back since it was the only place in town showing the Virginia Tech football game, and I needed an excuse to stop walking. The food was good, especially the sauteed kale I had as a side, though nothing too special. We couldn’t beat the prices for what we got in downtown Williamsburg, though!
I wish we’d had more room to eat even more, but I guess there’s always next time. Now time for a detox week!
