For those who stay loyal and true to Bud Light, don’t worry as we always have that on tap as well.

Our annual Brew with a View Event is coming up on July 7th, where over 40 local breweries will be sampling their beers.

Beer enthusiasts are beginning to notice the not so hidden gem down at Tova’s Tavern. With the addition of our new tap system and an emphasis on quality microbrews, the beer selection is quickly becoming a major attraction in the restaurant. Our staff has doubled down on finding the perfect mix to tickle your fancy and provide a unique tasting experience. Guests are invited to sample the different brews to help determine the perfect choice for their particular tastes.

Tova’s Tavern has been serving thirsty guests for decades and with the beer revolution sweeping the country some upgrades to the selection were an obvious fit. Beyond the enhanced offering at the bar, the resort has also embraced the new beer culture by hosting the annual A Brew with a View brewfest. The festival brings together a variety of regional microbrews from around New England as well as like-minded fans of craft beer. The brewfest offers a unique opportunity to research new ideas for the bar and get feedback from guests attending the event. It is really a win-win for our “research” team.

With all the attention given to our beer selection, it’s no wonder Tova’s has been getting some extra attention these days. Just remember, if you plan a visit, don’t forget to pet the stuffed husky on the last bar stool. The tradition is guaranteed to bring good luck for years to come.

From the picnic tables overlooking the view to the beer tent hosting the brewers, laughs buzzed under the echoes of live music playing to the crowd. The enjoyment level was palpable.

With the conclusion of the brewfest, it was obvious that Steele Hill’s unmatched vantage point overlooking the Lakes Region provided a special experience to all of the beer enthusiast in attendance. The resort’s unique setting truly complimented the festivities. With the resounding positive feedback and desire to introduce new visitors to Steele Hill, the planning is already on for 2016.
