Awesome new place in Westport. Always go here when in town for work. Excellent, gourmet sandwiches. Very unique beer menu - constantly chaging with very good, US micros to very rare imports (some of which can be very pricy).
From recommendations of customers at the Flying Saucer, we went to Beer Kitchen for dinner. The food was innovative and tasty. They had a great seletion of gluten-free food for my wife, so she was very impressed with the food and selection. The beer selection is relatively small on tap, but the beers on tap are an exceptional collection of non-mainstream beers, and the bartenders were good at offering suggestions. An above average selection of bottled beers, including some vintage dated and rare beers, but bottles were a bit pricey. I would highly recommend Beer Kitchen if you want to have well-paired eclectic beers with original food. I had Gouden Carolus Ambrio, St. Fueillien Grisette Blanche, and Arcadia Hopmouth - all decent but not exceptional beers, but all paired very nicely with bratwurst burgers and yummy deviled eggs.
food can be great or lacking. seems like kitchen staff is new periodically. good rotating taps. staff very often doesn’t know what they are serving. seems like the first review really skewed the ratings. sometimes it’s my favorite place in westport but can also be awful and frustrating. kind of a crap shoot. have had rare taps, but it is obvious that the taps rotate when emptied. worth a stop, but ask whats on tap before you sit down. sometimes the draft is not very diverse. as of late it’s all hops.
I wanted to downgrade them for the shameless advert in the first rating but it was a nice place. Urban setting in the Westport neighborhood makes for easy walking. Nice tap selection that had a nice mix of Belgian and German brews. Burger and frites were outstanding. Extra point for the bartender not putting a lemon in a patron’s hefe until the uninformed local demanded the fruit. Get a nice, quality draft and meal here, then walk across the street to McCoy’s Public House for a flight of tasters.
