Beards Brewery has always been a favorite Friday night hangout spot.
A place where friends can come together over a brew, play house games and locate adult on all a internal happenings. Last year a owners of Beards Brewery, Ben Slocum and Peter Manthei, announced their skeleton to immigrate and expand.
With vehement anticipation, long-time lovers of Beards waited (not so) patiently for a grand-opening of a new plcae on Lake Street, in downtown Petoskey. The same week Beards re-opened, we had family in town. It was a ideal arise to check out their new menu and provide a guest to some good locally brewed qualification beers.
When we initial travel in, you’re nod by a informed board of a Beards Brewery logo. Then as we turn a corner, you’re strike with an extraordinary perspective of a bay. The grill facilities vast slabs of timber accenting a walls, a beautifully vast bar area and lots of seating – everywhere with a view.
The new menu offers some bar-food favorites with a Beards twist, along with a operation of other options that aren’t typically seen during pubs. Their splash menu feels informed and includes many of a aged favorites, along with some new options.
The initial thing we systematic was a turn of Lunas and base beers. The really subsequent thing we systematic was a Dips and Chips starter. The starter has new dips daily (chef’s choice), and comes with 3 opposite forms of chips to dip, including their potato chips that are done in-house.
Our starter featured a tawny buffalo duck drop surfaced with a cooling blue cheese and celery spread, a other was Beard’s take on pico de gallo, and a third was a honeyed plight dip. Our table’s favorite was by distant a buffalo duck dip. It had only a right volume of buffalo flavor, and went ideally with a cooling celery dip.
The jalapeno burger also came on a house-baked bun, along with uninformed jalapenos, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato and muenster cheese. The burger was luscious and baked wonderfully, and a caramelized onions were a honeyed counterpoint to a sharp punch of a uninformed jalapenos.
The gyro was also delicious, entrance with all a classical ingredients: braised lamb, lettuce, tomato, onion, feta cheese, and tzatziki, all folded into a comfortable grilled pita. The season and hardness multiple in a gyro is always tasty, melding together crunchy, chewy, buttery, comfortable and cold flavors.
Beards Brewery will be a favorite for a prolonged time to come. With a grill only opening and renovations will be completed, I’m certain they’re still training and tweaking. I’m vehement to be means to watch their mutation as they grow and continue to pierce in to their new space.
