Sunday afternoon is a busy time in downtown De Pere. The city’s restaurants are all full– especially with the weather being on the warmer side compared to most of March. I arrived at the building that Brickhouse shares with Julie’s Cafe to find that there wasn’t a single parking spot available in the lot. I considered it a good sign for the meal I would have inside the doors, so I found another spot in the downtown area to walk back down to the restaurant.
During the height of the pandemic, I ordered a burger for delivery from Brickhouse, so I had some idea of what to expect. Big burgers and tasty fries were still fresh in my memory. Little did I know that they developed a rotating monthly menu that included a limited offering poutine, burger, and sandwich. On another visit, I would love to try the buffalo chicken poutine. This visit wasn’t that visit, however.
That all says nothing about the long beer list at Brickhouse, constantly rotating through craft brews from near and far. At least once a month, they offer special events with breweries to taste something new coming to their draft section that month. Burger and beer connoisseurs alike will find something to make them happy here no matter what day of the week you decide to stop in for your own visit.
Keep an eye on their facebook page for information about any of the special events or patio opening information as the weather warms up. Their hours on facebook are also accurate, so you can plan your visit from there with accuracy.
Thanks to the staff for a delicious meal, and kudos to the kitchen staff on the most well cooked calamari I’ve had in town!
