We decided on Mr. Brews Taphouse, and off we went.
The most striking feature of the actual restaurant is the massive tap that they have behind the bar, hence the name. There’s something for everyone back there, even if the bar list appears to favor hoppier beers. We took more time choosing our beer than deciding on what we wanted to eat since there was so much to choose from-- fifty-nine different choices according to their website. I appreciated the options when I’m normally the person that orders a Spotted Cow without even looking at the beer list.
They rotate out their beers as the seasons go on, and you can look forward to what they will have available by viewing the back of their beer menus. Most exciting to me was that a company from my college town, Destihl, would have a beer on the menu soon. The actual selection only changes by a handful of beers each time a rotation comes by the looks of it, but that’s okay. If they have customer favorites, they obviously have to keep those on the menu.
