Holiday Gift Ideas, Whiskey Dinners and more

WB’s Eatery in Ogden offers unique gift boxes. On December 16th Spencer’s and Clear Water Distilling will host a four-course whiskey dinner. 


WB’s Gift Ideas

At WB’s Eatery in Ogden’s The Monarch, as well as online, you can purchase unique gift boxes and packs, as well as jams, cocktail kits and more – any of which would make a terrific gift for the holidays.

If you or yours loves a good (non-alcoholic) Margarita, I’d suggest the Margarita Box from WB’s Market, which includes 750ml Ritual Zero Proof Tequila plus 750ml Hella Cocktail Habanero Margarita mix for a great, spicy non-alcoholic Margarita. 

Or, pick up a Good Day Sunshine Pack, which includes everything guaranteed to start a day off right: a bag of WB’s South American coffee blend, a bag of waffle mix (with a recipe card), and signature Jam from WB Eatery’s sister restaurant, Pig & a Jelly Jar. 

There’s even a gift to put under the tree for your favorite furry friend. The Deluxe Wags & Barks box includes a Peanut Butter (for humans or dogs), a bag of Hemp Treat, and dog toy.
