Pints, Forks & Friends Field Notes
Peek’n Peak is one of my favorite spots to ski. Jump on the highway for about 2 hours and you’re there. The addition of high speed lifts over the years really helped the resort grow. Also, the attention to craft beer at a few of their affiliated bistro’s and pubs have caught my attention as well. It’s truly a bonus. We enjoy stopping at the inn’s Bistro 210 and the Sugar Shack which is right next door.
The Sugar Shack has that “Après Ski” vibe offering restaurant style seating with huge windows overlooking the slopes, or the sports bar. We usually visit the Sugar Shack sports bar because the staff and environment is really cool. We met Adam, local resident and bar manager. Adam is full of local knowledge of what’s going on at Peek’n Peak and Findley Lake area. I believe their pizza and wings would be my go to if asked. The beer selection has a little bit of everything. I usually trend on the lighter beer selection because we’re pretty active while there. The Bistro’s 210 offers a more diverse menu, like steak and seafood. They also offer live entertainment, and sports an illuminated bar, they call it geode topped bar. Again like the Sugar Shack, they keep a well stocked bar with local craft beers and more.
