|Kettle Chips Supreme|
|Craft Beer Sampler|
Starting off this incredible dining experience, we were served Kettle Chips Supreme. I’ve had homemade potato chips in other establishments, but never with perfectly cooked smoked bacon, creamy blue cheese and scallions! They were like eating loaded potato skins with real crunch. In order to get the full effect, they were accompanied by a tasting of a few samples of crafted brews.
I have to admit I like salads, especially salads as refreshing and satisfying as their seasonal Strawberry Field. The strawberries were fresh and sweet, the feta cheese was creamy, the red onion and candied nuts had a wonderful sweetness, and the dried cherries added a wonderful chewy texture. You can add chicken to make this a meal you’ll want to come back for. Other salads include the Apple Orchard made with Granny Smith, dried cherries, goat cheese, candied nuts and red onions with balsamic vinaigrette. If that doesn’t convince you to try a salad, they offer a Balsamic Glazed Salmon with roasted tomatoes, feta cheese and roasted garlic vinaigrette, Yum. Our salad was accompanied with beer designed for the female market by Goose Island. Sophie and Matilda are two beers with very unique flavor profiles, giving the taster a spiciness of white pepper and citrus that even the boys will enjoy, I did.
|Fire In The Hole|
For the sake of full disclosure I can tell you I'm a burger snob. I judge restaurants based on their ability to deliver a good burger, and my reasoning is that if the kitchen can deliver a good burger then it stands to reason the rest of the menu will be enjoyable. The Fire In The Hole burger proved my point; it's exactly how a burger should taste. The taste of the beef was center stage, while the Jalapeno and Sriracha Aioli added just the right amount of spiciness. This burger is a 10, but if spicy is not your thing consider their Aloha Burger topped with Hawaiian BBQ sauce, grilled pineapple and provolone, or the Porky Pig topped with BBQ pork, cheddar cheese and onion straws. You won't be disappointed with any burger you get from the Brew Garden.
|Cleveland Press & Home Fries|
The Brew Garden is the kind of place you want to come with friends and hang out and socialize. Both locations, Parma and Middleburg Heights, offer huge outdoor patios, a fireplace room and private bar room for any occasion on your agenda. Their food menu is as diverse and unique as their beer menu, and what goes better with beer than pizza! I was not prepared to experience pizza this good and I can see why it's the staff favorite. The Greek pizza is a white sauce with grilled chicken, onion, roasted tomato, creamy feta cheese topped with greens tossed in Mediterranean vinaigrette. This is not your average pizza and I want more of this light and refreshing pie. The crust alone is worth the price of admittance on this pizza journey, and the toppings bring it to a whole new level.
|Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzel|
What else can possibly surprise me at this point? Well, let me tell you about my new favorite dessert, the Sweet Cream Cheese Filled Pretzel. Take a light fluffy pretzel and toss it in cinnamon and sugar, serve with ice cream and chocolate stout sauce and you get a salty sweet treat that beckons the question - Where have you been all my life? And who would've thought the perfect way to enjoy this phenomenal dessert was to pair it with a rare release of Dogfish Head Burton Baton oak aged Imperial IPA (India Pale Ale). You don't have to take my word for it, visit the Brew Garden and taste for yourself. Enjoy live entertainment on the weekends, or a DJ on Fridays and Saturdays. I encourage you to bring a few friends, you won't be disappointed.
