There are currently eight beers on tap, including the Hub & Spoke Vienna lager, the Bridgelandia blonde ale, the Victoria Park porter, the New England style IPA and more. While there are a few snacks available, Inner City doesn't serve full meals. Instead, guests can order-in food or bring something from home to munch on.

Guests can access the Lukes restaurant, which offers a menu of oatmeal, porridge, kale risotto, sandwiches and more, from outside the new library building.
