The Home of Farm to Foam

Ottawa, IL is home to The Lone Buffalo, our first restaurant and the home of our original craft brewery. It’s also home to our hops and barley farm, whose crop we use to create our authentic Farm to Foam beers. At the heart of the Lone Buffalo are the large twin copper brewing kettles, imported from Bavaria, and admired and enjoyed by fans far and wide.

I enjoy working for The Lone Buffalo by Tangled Roots Brewing Company to help promote the community and share some of the flavors of our shared heritage, as well as providing new experiences along the way. My impetus for cooking is to share simple food with great flavor. I enjoy cooking and bringing something new to the tale that is reminiscent of flavors from the past.
