You’re in for a treat. HMD Bar & Grill is renowned for its exceptional reviews by the best local artisans and brewers. Forget the usual – you won’t find any mass-produced flavors here. Instead, dive into a world where each dish and drink is thoughtfully crafted to highlight the talents within our own community.
Locally Sourced Ingredients: Supporting Our Community
When you dine at HMD Bar & Grill, you’re experiencing the true essence of the local community. Our menu features ingredients sourced from local farmers, ranchers, and artisans. We proudly collaborate with talented neighbors who share our passion for quality and craftsmanship.
Every dish at HMD highlights the region’s vibrant flavors. Our salads are tossed with organic greens grown just down the road. Each juicy burger is made from beef raised at a family farm 15 miles away. And our wood-fired pizzas are topped with local cheeses that simply can’t be found anywhere else.
We also partner with acclaimed local brewers to bring you distinctive ales and lagers that capture the spirit of our town. From hoppy IPAs to full-bodied stouts, there’s a locally crafted beer for every taste. Sip a pint while enjoying live music on the patio, and you’ll feel the community coming together.
At Bar & Grill, we believe that every ingredient and every partnership matters. By supporting local farmers, artisans, and brewers, we’re cultivating relationships and giving back to the place we call home. We invite you to taste the difference local makes.

Signature Cocktails: Crafted With Care
There’s nothing quite like a handcrafted cocktail made with locally-sourced ingredients. At restaurant, we collaborate with small-batch distillers and brewers in the region to create signature cocktails infused with the distinct essence of our community.
For example, our Paloma Punch combines fresh grapefruit juice with artisanal mezcal from a nearby distillery. The smoky, earthy notes of the mezcal pair beautifully with the tangy citrus. Another favorite is the Lavender 75, which blends gin from a craft distiller down the road with muddled lavender and lemon for a refreshing floral twist on a French 75.
We also feature a rotating menu of specialty cocktails made with small-batch spirits from various local distillers. Some are made in limited quantities, so when they’re gone, they’re gone! Our bartenders are passionate about using spirits with complex, layered flavors that showcase the skill and creativity of our community’s distillers.
In addition to cocktails, we offer a curated list of craft beers from independent local and regional brewers. There’s nothing mass-produced here – just the finest ales, lagers, and stouts made with the highest quality, all-natural ingredients and lots of TLC!
When you sip one of our signature cocktails or enjoy a pint of craft beer, you’re experiencing the passion and artistry of our community’s brewers and distillers.
