Supporting Central New York has been a key pillar for Yellow Brick Road Casino in Chittenango since its opening last summer. The Wizard of Oz-themed casino located in the Village of Chittenango is building upon that support, partnering with the Canastota-based Erie Canal Brewing Company to offer their Amber Waves of Grain brew to guests. The brew, an amber ale with a deep caramel flavor cut by earthy Mt. Hood hops, will be offered at the Heart and Courage Saloon.

Erie Canal Brewing Company takes a unique approach to brewing, locally sourcing every ingredient. Owner Sam Lanzafame expanded from a home-grown operation, growing the hops in his own backyard, to a full-fledged brewery, with several craft beers distributed across the state. The Amber Waves of Grain brew will be the February Beer of the Month at Yellow Brick Road Casino, allowing guests to experience the brewery’s unparalleled craftsmanship for a only $2.50.

In addition to introducing Amber Waves of Grain, the Heart and Courage Saloon is launching a new menu on Monday, February 8, which will include a variety of delicious sandwich options. The Lion’s Roar, an Italian-inspired sandwich featuring meats and melted cheese topped with a tomato garlic butter, is a feast fit for two, while classics like the Turkey Sub, Grilled Chicken Sandwich and the Chicken Philly are perfectly portioned for one.

Guests in the mood for food beyond sandwiches will find a perfect match at Yellow Brick Road’s other dining venues. Dorothy’s Farmhouse, a quaint comfort-food haven, will be offering a Fish Fry every Friday through February. Guests can enjoy a plate of beer-battered haddock, fries and coleslaw for just $11 all day. Other delicious options include the exciting Slice of the Day at Wicked Good Pizza, a rotating schedule of creative and delicious slice options, ranging from Buffalo Chicken Wing to Ham & Cheese, with each day’s unique special posted to Yellow Brick Road’s Twitter account, @YBRCasino.

With exciting weekend entertainment at the Heart and Courage Saloon, drink specials at the Winged Monkey, and Las Vegas style gaming, there’s no shortage of things to do this winter at Yellow Brick Road Casino.
