Craft Beer Spotlight: The Old Town Pub
For over two decades, The Farnsworth House operated on historic Farnsworth Avenue in the heart of historic Bordentown City, NJ. In 2017, the restaurant was sold and underwent extensive renovations, reopening as the Old Town Pub. Local legend Michael Scharibone, best known as the face of Hamilton’s most popular bar – JoJo’s Tavern, and local business owner Scott O’Brien undertook the daunting task of redesigning and improving all facets of the Farnsworth House while preserving the extensive history of the building.
The bar seating was more than tripled in both the downstairs and new upstairs bars, while also increasing the seating throughout the restaurant. The menu was redesigned and the draft system was replaced with a 30-tap system downstairs, and a 20-tap system upstairs, allowing a constantly-rotating array of local and national craft beers, as well as adding a new-age tap wine system, pre-made cocktails, and draft root beer.
Not only are the drinks on point but the food menu has been designed to bring some fresh ideas to classic pub favorites. The homemade tater tots have been especially popular! Another favorite is the OTP Burger which has gruyere cheese, BBQ pork belly, and an onion ring on top of their house blend of brisket, short rib, and chuck.
Pop into the bar to see what the latest brew from Neshaminy Creek is on tap and take advantage of their new happy hour special; $4 NCBC Highwater Hefeweizen or Yards Philly Pale Ale cans from 3:30-6:00pm Monday through Friday!
