One of the most recent is the Craft On 9 Tap Room in the Washington County village of Fort Edward, population 10,000. It is located at 1451 Saratoga Road, the former location of the restaurant Luisa's.
Beer is, of course, at the center of the operation, with the likes of Druthers, Allagash, 21st Amendment, Six Point, Jacks Abby, and Black Hog on tap.
But, the bistro-style the menu is far from the usual bar foods. Recent examples of what Murphy is offering include Craft Ramen (ramen noodles in a bacon dashi broth, with crispy pork belly, smoked pork shoulder, with scallion, nori and a sunnyside-up egg) and Surf & Turf (cumin and brown sugar rubbed Teres Major served atop a cannellini bean, shrimp, sweet pepper, sun-dried tomato, and red onion ragout, topped with asparagus).
