Back in September of 2012, Marc and Jeff began plotting a flavor assault on the 831 area code that would finally allow Marc’s fine brews to be consumed on location, at the source.  After quite a few conversations and plenty of I.P.A., a plan was hatched!  We would not just raise the bar on traditional tap room fare, we would set it!  Not any run of the mill menu would do his artisan craft ales justice, so we decided in order to keep the integrity of his brews, we would have to do what no other brewery, tap room, or deli in the area was doing.  Thus giving birth to the Sando!  Jeff brought over 14 years of restaurant experience to the Ale Works and spent months developing a menu that would compliment the same high standard, passion and commitment that Marc was already putting into his beers.  We knew we would separate ourselves from all others by making everything in-house, from the pickles and ‘krout to the house smoked meats and all the sauces made from scratch.  We didn’t stop there, we pickle eggs, make deviled eggs daily, and figured out how to bake the best gluten free-bread around!   After 12 years of commuting over highway 17, Jeff his wife, Kelly and son Dylan, had an opportunity present itself here in the friendly confines of our fair city, and they jumped all over it!
