Driven by CraftWorks’ New Executive Chef, Limited-time Menu Features Flavors from America, Latin America and Germany
Guests have just a few more days to enjoy the limited-time Rocktoberfest menu at Rock Bottom Brewery & Restaurant, a casual dining chain featuring handcrafted brews and made-from-scratch food. This year, Rock Bottom is tapping guests’ favorite fall beer, Rocktoberfest, once again and pairing it with an exciting menu — available through Oct. 19 — featuring fall flavors from America, Latin America and Germany.
“This year’s Rocktoberfest menu, which features comfort foods inspired by bold flavors from regions around the world, has been a hit with guests,” said Stan Frankenthaler, who was recently named Chief Officer of Food, Beverage and Strategic Supply for CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries, Inc. “Guests have loved the exciting evolution of the dishes they’ve come to expect from Rock Bottom and new flavors we’re introducing as part of our brand refresh. From favorites like our Rocktoberfest Appetizer Combo and warming Beer Cheese Soup to saucy and spicy mac ‘n cheeses, we’re sure that even after Rocktoberfest ends, guests will keep coming back to see what flavors and unique dishes we unveil next.”
