To be singled out for being “cheesy” may not sound like a big deal, but it has earned Stone Cellar Brewpub a spotlight segment on the Travel Channel’s “Food Paradise” show.
According to Stone Cellar co-owner Steve Lonsway, some of the brewpub’s cheese-based menu items will be featured on a segment of the Travel Channel’s Food Paradise show titled “Extra Cheesy” which is slated to air this Sunday, December 18, at 7 p.m. Central time. Stone Cellar will be one of eight restaurants included in the show.
“We have no idea” how the network zoomed in on the Appleton brewpub and restaurant, Lonsway says, but he and the rest of the crew are pretty excited they did.
Besides holding the distinction of being Wisconsin’s oldest continuously operating brewpub, Stone Cellar is, after all, located in the heart of American’s Dairyland and in a state that has made being cheesy a virtue.
“They filmed here for about eight hours quite a while ago,” he explains. “We can’t divulge which menu items will be featured, though. That’s part of the ‘reveal’ on the show.”
What he can say is that guests who come to watch the hour-long show at Stone Cellar will be treated to free samples of the dishes during the airing. And, over the five days following the program, anyone who orders one of the featured items will get a discount off the price.
Since 2004, father-and-son partners Tom and Steve Lonsway have been offering the Fox Valley hand-crafted fresh and natural beer and quality cuisine at Stone Cellar Brewpub. Located in the historic Between-the-Locks building, Stone Cellar Brewpub features a restaurant, pub, brewery and beer garden.
Stone Cellar’s menu features appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, items they deem “pub favorites,” seafood and its renowned pizza. The menu loaded with artisan dishes only hints at
what may have attracted the Travel Channel to come knocking at the brewpub’s door.
“We’re excited to be featured and have our specialty items showcased to such a wide audience,” Lonsway says. “We’re especially proud of our commitment to serving locally sourced foods, including organic fruits and vegetables, and buying from companies with certified humane practices.” Stone Cellar also brews its own gourmet sodas with natural cane sugar.
