Best Brewpubs in California!
Beer and food. Yumm Yum Yum.
Was just a the Sierra nevada Brewery in Chico. The beer there is great, brews you can't get in the stores.
The food is really good. We went for lunch. Stromboli, Fish and Chips, and Sierra Nevada salad.
The meatballs in the Stromboli were some of the best I ever had, On a toasted french roll covered with sauce and cheese.
The fish was excellent too, light and fluffy batter wnd the fish done perfectly.
The salad, with balsamic vinagrette and cnadied pecans and gorgonzola was made with various lettuces and heirloom tomatoes. Awesome.
The fires wer lacking though, they were the frozen type everyone has. Mine were cajun style but more breaded thatn cajun I thought.
I ahve beeb here many times and the food is always high quality, and the beers are just perfect accompainment to the meal.
Come to think of it, there's actually a pretty good brewpub in Big Bear. It's tiny, but the beer is darn good. the food is just so-so, but that's Big Bear for ya.
I searched in vain for a brewpub in LA. There are plenty of places with good beer and food, but when I say BREWPUB, I mean they make their own beers. Gordon Biersch is a chain (they also own RockBottom) and all the beers are mediocre and shipped from corporate. Angel City makes great beers, but they don't have a bar or food.
I heard there's a place in one of the downtown hotels. Anyone know about this brewpub? Is the beer any good?
