Prime Time Beef and Ale hand-carves new life from former neighborhood watering hole in Roslyn

Roslyn, PA  — When Roslyn native and Abington High School graduate Kimberly Shire used to pass by Carney’s Tavern in 2005, a local watering hole at 1139 Easton Road, she never dreamed that one day she would be co-owner of a revitalized and welcoming spot for hand carved sandwiches and domestically brewed and distilled beers and liquors in the same location.

Newly renovated and opened for business since late September, Prime Time Beef and Ale features an open carvery kitchen, where beef, pork and turkey are roasted on-site and served with aged provolone, broccoli rabe and specialty rolls. Carveries can be wet (with gravy), dry (without gravy), extra wet (dunked in gravy), or scooped (bread scooped out so that only shell is left), all tender and piled high on a Liscio’s fresh baked roll. Folks looking for other menu options can also enjoy homemade fried chicken, baby back ribs, entree salads and more.

Customers watch their meals being prepared from a dining and bar area designed to pay homage to America’s proud past as an industrial leader via corrugated metal walls, handcrafted cast iron chairs, and a curved stainless steel bar.

But the American spirit does not stop there with the establishment’s design and decor. Co-owner Zac Hulayev is committed to reinvigorating the concept of American protectionism and achieves this by running a bar which features 12 American-made draft beers, and alcohol distilled in the domestic United States only.  “There are no imports here; this is a bar rooted in America, and I wanted our bar offerings to be rooted in America as well,” stresses Hulayev who also owns the Drake and King’s Corner in Jenkintown.  Hulayev did his homework to identify such outstanding U.S. distillers as Five Wives from Utah; Rouge from Oregon which makes Dead Guy beer, whiskey, and rum; Anchor Brewing from San Francisco, famous for Anchor Steam Beer, as well as a unique hop-vodka; Philadelphia based Bluecoat Gin, and several others.

Prime Time Beef and Ale is located at 1139 Easton Road in Roslyn. Restaurant hours are 11 am – 2 amseven days a week. Sandwich specials are offered daily.  Pick-up and delivery services are available and the bar sells growlers of beer to go.  For more information, visit www.ptbeefandale.com.
