C&O Canal celebratory menu additions

Dear Friends,

This summer, when celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the C&O Canal and Towpath, Beans in the Belfry is also celebrating some new summer and towpath specials.

Our new C&O sandwich conjures up a Mediterranean summer trip on the canal.  It combines juicy gyro slices of lamb and beef, fresh Feta cheese and the sundrenched goodness of chopped olives, fire roasted red peppers, onions, spinach and artichoke hearts served on fragrant Flat bread.  So when you ride or hike along the canal towpath and get this empty feeling in need to refuel, stop by Beans in the Belfry on Mile 55 and reward yourself with an order of our C&O sandwich.  Sit in our eclectic indoors in air conditioned coolness and glimpse into the history of Brunswick on the Potomac.  Our brick church building was erected in 1908 at the then outskirts of Brunswick.  Or find a seat on our front sidewalk or in the new garden area in the sun or shade.

Do you enjoy a Keto or Gluten free lifestyle?  We’ll prepare an amazing GF Margherita pizza for you this summer to sustain you on your towpath trip.  Starting with a thin cauliflower or sweet potato crust we smother it with mozzarella, tomato slices, fresh basil, a sprinkling of virgin olive oil and bake it till the cheese melts.  The fresh taste, aromas and colors will make fond memories of your C&O Canal adventure.  However, there is no reason why you can’t just arrive on four wheels – we’ll welcome you all the same.

Our large selection of iced and frozen drinks offers lasting refreshment.  A special place on our summer drink menu will include cold brew coffee made with organic fair trade coffee beans from Honduras.  It produces a pleasant profile different from conventionally brewed coffee.   Give it a try – we think you will like it.

Look for  our C&O Canal summer specialties to launch on or around June 15!
