Five Course Scotch and Cigar Dinner

Featuring The Compass Box Whisky Co.

Presented by Chris Johnson of Wirtz Beverage

September 19th, 2013

Historic Water Street Inn



Butler Passed Hors D’oeuvres

Served with ~ Spice Tree, Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Our innovative and highly acclaimed blended malt whisky returns in a new edition. Made from Highland malt whiskies which we age in bespoke casks with new French oak heads of varying toast levels. It yields a malt whisky of richness and complexity.




Chilled Shrimp Cocktail

With Scotch Whiskey Cocktail Sauce

Served with ~ Great King Street, Blended Scotch Whiskey

More than just a new brand, Great King Street is a mission, a mission dedicated to reviving interest in one style of whisky only: Blended Scotch Whisky. This is the style of Scotch whisky that combines flavourful single malt whiskies with delicate, elegant single grain whiskies.


Smoked Duck Breast Salad

Baby Greens Tossed with Raspberry Vinaigrette & Black Pepper Crusted Goat Cheese

Served with ~ Flaming Heart, Vatted Malt Scotch Whiskey

Flaming Heart is back. Every few years, when we have the appropriate combination of aged whiskies, we are able to blend and bottle a new edition of the award-winning Flaming Heart. This is our fourth. It is a big, smoky malt whisky with rich, concentrated vanilla and spice character. It is unlike any other whisky, owing to the combination of distillery whiskies we use and the variety and quality of the casks.


Prime Rib of Beef

With Au Jus, Twice Baked Potato and Sautéed Green Beans with Slivered Carrots

Served with ~ The Peat Monster, Blended Malt Scotch Whiskey

For those who love big, rich, peaty and smoky malt whiskies, this is your whisky. Bottled at 46%, “The Peat Monster” combines extremely smoky malt whisky from Islay with medium-peated Highland whiskies to create a balanced and approachable monster, but a monster nonetheless. Enjoy!



Poached Pears in Gran Marnier

Over Orange Pound Cake

Served with ~ Orangerie, Scotch Whisky Infusion

To make Orangerie we begin with great whisky. We use a soft, sweet blend of Highland single malt and single grain whisky from Fife. Secondly, we use only the freshest, highest quality oranges and top class aromatic spices. Importantly, we zest the fruit by hand and use only fresh zest in our infusion. Only the hand-zested peel of really fresh Navalino oranges gives you the lively, vibrant flavours that are the hallmark of Orangerie.




$74.95 per person (plus tax & Gratuity) ~ includes 2 Hand-Rolled Cigars

Up coming band schedule for Charlie’s

August 9th, 2013 by chuck

Charlies Pub  Rest - FINAL copy

Live music for Charlie’s Irish Pub in the Historic Water Street Inn located in downtown Stillwater. 

Charlie’s Pub features live music every Friday and Saturday night from 7:30pm-11:30pm


January 3rd & 4th – Jennifer Licko

Recently awarded the 2014 Folk and Traditional Arts Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, Jennifer Licko is quickly making Minnesota home and sharing her music with new fans in the Midwest. Originally from North Carolina, Jennifer masterfully combines the Bluegrass and Country music from her American roots with traditional Celtic music of her ancestors. “I find myself relaxing, enjoying Jennifer’s flawless voice and finding the roots that are similar in tradition to American Folk music”, Says Dennis Halsey from Best Female Musicians.

January 10th & 11thBedlam

Bedlam is a band born out of the talent pool of the MN Renaissance Festival. Over the years the band has had a diverse sound and many different members. Its recent incarnation is a folk band with a hippie attitude. Many familiar songs with a different slant along with some original material as well. As the name implies a stage with this group on it is not a very stable one and you never know who may show up and sit in on a set.


January 17th & 18th – Irish Duo


January 24th & 25th – Paul and Lorraine

Paul and Lorraine have been playing Irish music together for a couple of years now, starting with the rouge folk band Folk Underground and then splitting off to form their own duo.  Something for everyone lots of drinking, lots of losing your love, & happy little nights in the Pub. Not to mention some of the best Irish Fiddle Tunes going.  They like to take requests & will play almost anything, if they know about half of it.

January 31st & February 1st – Tom Dahill

Tom Dahill and Ginny Johnson are superb entertainers with a fantastic repertoire of old Irish songs and dance tunes that you won’t hear from anyone else. They have command of many instruments between them; Irish button accordion, concertina, uilleann pipes, fiddle, whistle, bodhrán, guitar and they sort of juggle these instruments between them to suit the sounds to fit the venue as they go along through their performances. This is the music that is part of the soul of Ireland.


February 7th & 8th – Bedlam

Bedlam is a band born out of the talent pool of the MN Renaissance Festival. Over the years the band has had a diverse sound and many different members. Its recent incarnation is a folk band with a hippie attitude. Many familiar songs with a different slant along with some original material as well. As the name implies a stage with this group on it is not a very stable one and you never know who may show up and sit in on a set.


February 14th & 15th TBA


February 21st & 22ndHounds of Finn

A high-energy Irish musical entity forged from the roots of Celtic and American traditions. Based in St. Paul, MN, the Hounds perform Irish folk-rock and roots music from around the world, along with their own original material-topped off with a sprinkling of traditional Irish and Scottish tunes. One of Charlie’s Favorites!
