Happy Hour Specials are Always a Good Thing

Most all agree that Happy Hour is a beautiful thing. Visit Joe Roots for the greatest Happy Hour Specials around.

Happy Hour is an obscure American ritual where we have drinks in-groups to let loose after work. There’s no handshake or password just a shared understanding. It’s sort of goes back to Prohibition when we had speakeasies instead of bars. You’d catch hell if you were caught, so nobody squealed. They just drank, had a blast and went to work again the next day. It’s still kind of a club, this Happy Hour thing– just without secret tunnels or hidden sliding doors. We still meet up, have a blast, and then ease on through. Home, then to work the next day.

Happy Hour at Joe Roots runs from five until seven Monday through Saturday. We do half-price appetizers and the drinks are 25% off, so when you see your mailman, work buddy, or that angel-faced cutie from accounting, you can treat for two without breaking the bank–and lose the cares of the day in some bubblin’ suds.

Drinks are abundant at Joe Roots

Speaking of suds, we’ve got quite a collection as our Happy Hour Specials menu includes Labatt’s, Yuengling and Angry Orchard on tap. We’ve got special ones too, like Abita Purple HazeĀ® a fun, fruity lager brewed with pilsner and wheat malts and Vanguard hops made with real raspberries added after filtration. Another draft-tap gem, brewed right here in town, is Erie Brewing Company’s Railbender Ale. A hard-hitting Scottish Style brew that features deep malt flavor, the Railbender features caramely sweetness swirled in smooth dark amber with a light touch of hops, that packs a smooth tasty punch. They pair well with our appetizers too–great combinations include our Oysters, prepared raw on the half-shell, deep fried or grilled with chipotle butter. You can also try our Smothered Cheese Fries, seasoned and topped with cheddar, monterey jack, bacon and chives.

Come in with the blues and leave the man of the hour with Joe Roots’ delicious Happy Hour Specials. We’ve got Ā flavor and brews that soothe all the way through. Come Revel in the spirit of the Isle.
