In keeping with the happy- go-lucky nature of the famed saint, Young Augustine’s offers 27 beers on tap. Even the most discriminating beer snob will feel right at home here. The eclectic menu offers a variety of snacks, plates and not snacks at all. Favorites include the smoked wings, duck fries, short rib grilled cheese and pork vindaloo. The pub has plenty of outdoor dining space and two bocce ball courts - perfect for late night revelry.
