Introducing the Port City’s newest hot craft beer spot–Stalk + Vine!

Zac (not in a band) Brown, formerly of Waterman’s Brewing, has opened up a restaurant on the Riverwalk in the old Le Catalan. The menu is eclectic, featuring dishes inspired by Zac’s travels, and the lists of libations overfloweth.

Notable dishes are the Marinated Flank Steak sandwich and the Yellowfin Tuna pinchos (or skewers, for those not in-the-know). The menu is fully fleshed out for diners with dietary restrictions of all kinds. Vegan? Cool. Not vegan, but can’t do dairy? NBD. Zac, Chef Pete, and their team got you.

Beverages of all kinds are available at Stalk + Vine. Beer, wine, and spirits decorate the menu, including a creative cocktail list. But beer is where Zac’s heart really resides.

The new restaurant recently hosted a never-before-seen-on-the-east-coast tap takeover with Cellarmaker Brewing out of San Francisco complete with a guest appearance from Sante Adarius from Santa Cruz. The event was massively well-attended, so Wilmington beer enthusiasts can expect to see more adventurous events in the future.

His opening draught list included local favorites as well as a couple of out-of-towners including a saison from Blackberry Farms. But Zac has plans to keep his list fresh, thoughtful, and innovative. Fans of sours can pucker up to the Cascade bottles pouring from the cruvinet.

Stalk + Vine is open Tuesday-Sunday from 11a to 11p. Keep an eye on their Facebook Page and Instagram for updates about food specials and upcoming events.
