Scratch Brewing’s Fourth Anniversary Reuben sandwich

“Crossing a bare common, in snow puddles, at twilight, under a clouded sky, without having in my thoughts any occurrence of special good fortune, I have enjoyed a perfect exhilaration. Almost I fear I think how glad I am. In the woods, too, a man casts off his years, as the snake his slough, and at what period soever of life is always a child. In the woods, is perpetual youth. Within these plantations of God, a decorum and a sanctity reign, a perennial festival is dressed,, and the guest sees not how he should tire of them in a thousand years. In the woods, we return to reason and faith.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Nature”

ANNIVERSARY REUBEN

  • House corned beef

Forbidden Root Brewery’s 8oz. burger

“Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is Alchemy’s First Law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world’s one, and only, truth. But the world isn’t perfect, and the law is incomplete. Equivalent Exchange does not encompass everything that goes on here, but I still chose to believe in its principle: that all things do come at a price, that there’s an end and a way, that the pain we worked through did have a reward, and that anyone who’s determined and perseveres will get something of value in return, even if it’s not what they’re expecting.”
– Alphonse Elric, “Full Metal Alchemist”

Kuma Schaumburg’s Vôdûn burger

“Shrunken heads, broken legs, body parts on the concrete,
Cut ’em up butcher style, gators of the swamp.
Red light, leave ’em dead, running like a track meet.
Scared of nobody, what you motherfuckers want?
Believe me when I tell ’em I’m a bogeyman beast,
Leave ’em slashed from their head to their feet.
Pin bricks to the chest of a bitch well fed,
Cooking meat, cannibal trying to eat.”
– Sam B, “Who Do You Voodoo”
