Owner and Executive Chef Thad Kittrell will also serve up specialty dishes including Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Grilled Cheese paired with a cup of Butternut Squash Soup for fall. The Kittrells are blessed with three young taste-testers at home which helped them create a kid’s menu full of delicious and healthy selections. Kiddy meals are served on a fun cafeteria tray with “Ice-Your-Own” Sugar Cookies for dessert! Menus will change quarterly along with regularly rotating tap selections. Owner and Chef Thad Kittrell will team up with various brewers to host monthly beer dinners which pair Kittrell’s culinary creations with a smooth pint. The most unique aspect of 101 Beer Kitchen, though, he says are “the people running it. Our staff has a passion for what we are doing and a real desire to serve and share their best experience with guests.” Under the creative direction of Owner Jessica Kittrell, 101 Beer Kitchen was designed to suit the quaint and community-focused charm of Dublin while offering a fresh take on rustic sophistication.

The name “101” actually represents the couple’s wedding anniversary, 10/1, and their brand identity which is a simple, back-to-basics approach to food, beer and the education thereof. Whether you’re looking for a meal, a beer, or a snack and camaraderie, 101 is the perfect spot for residents and visitors alike.
