Nutty Squirrel Gelato
Nutty Squirrel is a small family business with one goal – to share our love of gelato with our friends in the Northwest. We make our gelato and sorbetto right in the store, using only the freshest ingredients. “We want our shops to be a place to celebrate our local culture and support the community.” We wanted our name to reflect our community as well as our product, which is how “Nutty Squirrel” was born – to represent our beautiful, forested surroundings here in the Northwest, and the fresh nuts we use, like hazelnut, pistachio, and peanuts.
Veraci Pizza features a delicious ultra-thin artisan crust made from our secret recipe. Each batch of dough is hand prepared in a mixing bowl, never by machine. Our mouth-watering pizzas are fired inside our very own clay ovens at screaming 1000 degree temperatures. In ninety seconds, our famous “pizza experience” emerges from the flames to claim its title: “Best Pizza in North America”*
Iron Horse Brewery
Iron Horse Brewery proudly presents some of the best craft beer available, according to our mouths. We don’t adhere to traditional styles, but rather combine flavors and aromas that give our craft beer it’s distinct taste. While we’re probably best known for IRISH DEATH, we have a number of other local craft brews that are independently made from the finest ingredients and other really important marketing words that make our beer sound superior.
