While a brunch of Eggs Benedict and mimosas can be delightful, sometimes you are craving something a little more substantial, a little…meatier. The Thirsty Pig has got you covered with Beer Brunch. Starting at 10:30 a.m., The Pig will be serving up house sausage frittatas, breakfast sausage waffle patties, and the Thirsty Pig “Peaks” sandwich, their take on the Cuban. Oh, and beer! On tap will be Foundation Burnside Coffee, Ommegang Three Eyed Raven Dark Saison, 21st Amendment Monk’s Blood, and Boothbay Black Rock Stout.
