Real Mexican Flavors & Craft Beers
Welcome to The Battleground, a Mexican Kitchen & Taproom serving traditional food, unique cocktails, and our own craft beer. All of our food is made from scratch and we serve dishes representative of several regions in Mexico – pozole, churros, el pastor tacos, cochinita, mole, and our own recipes inspired by the flavors of Papantala. We offer indoor socially-distant dining, two newly-renovated outdoor patios, and a small outdoor music venue.
The Battleground is home to Drink Your Values (drinkyourvalues.org), an innovative social justice beer project. DYV beers support causes and organizations working to make our democracy more inclusive and further racial, economic, and social justice. For example, our signature Election Day IPA supports efforts here in Ohio to register voters and promote participation in the electoral process.
Discover real, traditional flavors direct from Mexico.
For the fullest flavor, we make our food from scratch.
Nearly all of our food is gluten free. Vegetarian/vegan options available.
Build a more just world for all by drinking your values
Election Day IPA is our first social justice craft beer. Each time you enjoy a balanced flavor, you’ll also support voter registration initiatives in Kent and surrounding Ohio communities.
Si Se Puede Lager Supports efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform that allows families to stay together, young people to realize their dreams, and communities to celebrate the diversity that makes our country great.
