Yards Beer Dinner

Join us for the Franklin Inn Yards Beer Dinner on Sunday, June 1st.

Our first beer dinner was a huge success and we've been asked over and over, "When is the next beer dinner?" it is...

Yards Beer Dinner

Join us for a delicious four course meal with beer pairings. Chris is researching and preparing a menu to out do the last one (if you can believe that!) and you'll get to try at least five different types of Yards Beers. One of them will be a hard to get special edition beer. We will be joined by a rep from Yards who will explain each beer with us and share really interesting stories about the various recipes. You'll be surprised to learn how the founding fathers were among Yard's inspirations.

Space is limited and our last beer dinner sold out in less than a month, so don't drag your feet or you may lose your seat. To register, visit our website

Try a Diamond Margarita

Looking for an ultra premium margarita experience? Try our new Diamond Margarita. 

Our Diamond Margarita is made with Maestro Dobel, the one and only Diamond Reposado on the market. This special tequila is created by combining Reposado, Anejo, and Extra-Anejo tequilas together and aging them in matured Hungarian White Oak barrels. It is filtered resulting  in an unusually clear reposado which is exceptionally smooth.

Named after its founder (Dobel is his abbreviated name – Juan Domingo Beckmann Legoretta) the tequila is sourced from single estates and is distilled from 100% blue agave and bottled in Jalisco, Mexico. Each bottle of Dobel Tequila is double-distilled,  Dobel Tequila is recognized for its superior smoothness and iconic packaging which includes a stopper and a modern twist on a vintage apothecary-style bottle, a heavily embossed bottle whose design is inspired by the laboratory sample bottles used by the distillery’s Maestro Tequileros (Master Distillers).

At the Franklin Inn, our Diamond Margarita features Maestro Dobel, Grand Marnier, and organic blue agave nectar.

Tequila of the Month: Cabo Wabo

The April Tequila of the Month is Cabo Wabo.

Cabo Wabo Tequila was born in 1996 on the back roads of Guadalajara by legendary musician and tequila aficionado, Sammy Hagar. After searching for a tequila exceptional enough to serve inside his cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Sammy partnered with a tequila-making family with over 80 years of experience. Today, the agave used to make Cabo Wabo Tequila is grown, cultivated and harvested by this same family.
