Crown City Brewery Offers Suds, Sports

 

By Bill Coburn

 

Crown City Brewery has 17 TV monitors, including a 52” HDTV.  Even the dining room has 3 TV screens, and you can see many of the screens in the bar from the dining room.  They have 9 satellite dishes, ensuring that pretty much anything you might want to watch can be put on one of their screens.   So it’s a sports fan’s mecca.

 

Including their own brews (the Mt. Wilson Wheat and the Arroyo Amber Ale, they have nearly two dozen beers on tap.  They offer nearly 3 dozen microbrews, and more than 100 types of beer in all.  You can pick up their Beers of the World Passport (or download it from their web page), and each time you try one of the beers, your passport will be checked off for that item.  Once you’ve completed the Passport, your receive a free 100 Beers t-shirt, and your name is added to their wall with the others who’ve completed their Passports.  That should satisfy the people coming in for the suds.

 

In addition to sports and suds, Crown City offers a varied menu, featuring everything from soups and salads, to burgers and sandwiches, as well as dinner entrees such as Salmon, a Flat Iron Pub Steak, and lean, tender Pork Ribs.

 

We stopped by the other night, and decided to start with what we’ve heard is their specialty, the Lahvosh, which had been highly recommended by Justin over at Mail Box & Postal.  We ordered the half order, and had it made half with bacon, half with smoked chicken.  Lahvosh is a crisp, Armenian cracker bread, covered with melted jack cheese, and served with salsa.  In addition to bacon and chicken, they offer a Three Pepper Lahvosh, an Italian Vegetable Lahvosh, Smoked Pork Lahvosh, or a Smoked Salmon Lahvosh.  Keelan wanted the bacon, I wanted the chicken, Katie just tried some of ours.  We all enjoyed it, and Katie was even trying to figure out how we might make it at home.

 

For dinner, Katie ordered a Cobb Salad, I ordered the Flat Iron Pub Steak, and Keelan, who recently added braces to his mouth, ordered the Potato Skins Sampler, figuring they’d be soft enough to eat with a tender set of gums.  Their Sampler comes with two skins with bacon and jalapenos, (he ordered it without the heat), one skin with chile, and one with smoked chicken.   All three kinds are smothered with melted cheese.  We were worried that there might not be enough food there for a meal, but there was too much, and he had to take some home.

 

Katie really enjoyed her Cobb Salad, which was served in a good-sized bowl with lots of crisp lettuce, grilled chicken, avocado chunks, smoked bacon, egg, blue cheese crumbles, tomato and dill.

 

The Flat Iron Pub Steak was served with a delicious brandy and peppercorn sauce, as well as a big helping of tasy “smashed” red rose potatoes, and lots of excellent sauteed vegetables.  It also came with a choice of soup or salad, I chose the salad, and enjoyed it, as well..

 

We chose to split a chocolate pudding cake for dessert, and were all quite pleased with it, even thought about ordering another one, but decided it would be overkill.  We were full, and satisfied.

 

Crown City has an e-mail newsletter to keep you updated on upcoming events and special goings-on.  You can sign up for the newsletter, download the Passport, and view the Crown City Brewery menu at www.crowncitybrew.com.   Be sure and let them know you read about them in Dot Com Dining.

 

Spoke with Jaime Castaneda of Los Gueros Grill in Pasadena the other day.  Seems there are some big goings on up on San Gabriel Ave.  Jaime was telling me that as a boy, he worked in his father’s small restaurant, and that it was always his father’s dream to own a grand restaurant, one which bore his family’s name.  His father was never able to realize that dream, and through the years, as Jaime continued in the restaurant business, he always thought about his father’s dream.  Starting in May, he will realize that drream.  The restaurant is changing to Castaneda’s Grill.  As jaime explained it to me, by putting the family name on the business, he hopes to honor his father, and make a promise to his son.  But most of all, he considers it a commitment to his customers, a commitment to make the restaurant even better than Los Gueros Grill, which I’ve always thought was pretty good.

 

As more information about the changeover becomes available, I’ll tell you more.
