Band of Bohemia is a destination restaurant that happens to brew beer as well. I’d put my first visit to the chefs counter as a top five restaurant experience that trumped just about every place I’ve been to in Chicago except for Alinea. I’d be surprised if they aren’t given a Michelin star in the next couple of years.


And they got a Michelin star first year. Killing it.

Also in PDX, Ex Novo does some nice stuff.

Maritime Pacific in Seattle has a solid kitchen, but they’re more of a sleeper with some good pub grub and good values on the menu.

It’s strange how rarely breweries open a good kitchen, especially given how many good restaurants host brewery dinners and good beer programs.

Good chefs are prob even more difficult than finding a good brewer. Great ones? Extremely rare on both ends. Add in catering to beer people in general and it’s crazy we have what we do willing to work along with beer.

I agree. Publicans should be aware that tasty food is a big plus to their place and can really make the difference.

Despite the fact that they drink $10 pours of nerd beer, beer people are the biggest bunch of cheapskates I’ve ever seen and they seem to prefer carb and bacon porn type food.

I don’t necessarily think breweries need tweezer food, but it’s nice to eat something with vegetables that aren’t breaded and/or deep fried and served with ranch dressing.

Brauerei Spezial in Bamberg gets my vote, but I guess that is probably not what the original poster had in mind :)

How’s Band of Bohemia’s beer? I checked out their website and the brews seemed ambitious and pretty unusual -- has anyone had anything from them?

I’ve had a few waves of them. They work with the food for sure, but not something you’d knock back a few pints of on the daily.

The brewer came from half acre and can definitely brew some good beer.
