Be sure to try our signature item, the Rock Filet; a cut-to-order seasoned tenderloin filet or ahi tuna that diners can enjoy as each piece is individually seared on a tulikivi firestone at the table. And save room for dessert. Every dessert is delicious and many are made with our beer!
BEST BEER IN TOWN
The Elevator Brewing Company carries 12-13 handcrafted beers on tap at all times. Ten ales and lagers are complemented by 2-3 monthly or seasonal selections, all ranging from very light to very dark. These are the result of the inspiration and toil of Brewmaster Andy Rich. The nitrogen injection system gives the Elevator Brewing Company the ability to make both cascading stouts and light beers.
After savouring a hearty meal at The Elevator, be sure to challenge a friend to a game of darts on any of our three classic dartboards, or take on a game of billiards on our antique billiard tables. We have two beautifully restored billiard tables. Our 8 foot table is from 1891, and our 7 foot table dates back to 1884.
A BRIEF HISTORY...
The Elevator Brewer and Draught Haus finds its home in the historic Columbia building, built in 1897 by the Bott family to house the Bott Brother’s Billiards and a gentleman’s saloon. The beautiful hand-carved, hand-split Philippine mahogany bar was created to serve the whiskey distilled on the second floor. The saloon enjoyed a brisk business from the turn of the century until the advent of prohibition in 1920. The building, rich in history, is on the national registry of historic landmarks and has been restored to much of its original grandeur. Among the original architectural elements that remain today are the beautiful bar, intricate mosaic tile floor, much of the stained glass and of course the decorative ceiling. The luxurious back-bar won the coveted blue ribbon for craftsmanship at the 1893 World Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Many myths and legends surround this historic building, including the presence of ghosts and spirits. Perhaps during your visit with us, you’ll encounter the unexpected.
