Sierra Madre Brewing Company2ís New Menu Gets Back to Basics

 

By Bill Coburn

 

Effective the beginning of this month, Sierra Madre Brewing Company2 has a brand new menu, and with it, a return to some of the old touches that made the Brewery such a popular Sierra Madre destination.  PEANUTS!!  Yes, the peanuts are back, but as the menu states, ďDonít throw the peanut shells on the floor, this ainít North Woods!Ē 

 

What better time to bring back Peanuts than the holiday season, since so many of us (at least in my generation and a couple generations before and after) associate Christmas with Charlie Brown and all his friends.  I missed watching the Christmas special on TV Tuesday, but I have it on tape, so Iíll still get to see it.  But I digress.

 

I stopped by with my wife to check out the new menu, and found that it has been scaled back and simplified, with lower price points.  Most of the items are served a la carte now, instead of coming with two sides, as on the old menu.  But the food is still the same great quality food, and the most popular menu favorites have been retained.

 

The two-sausage sampler is still there, as are the Philly sandwiches (available with your choice of beef, chicken or veggie).  The burger is now called the Montecito burger, but itís still an all-beef patty grilled to order.  The fish and chips is still there, and itís a good thing, because itís the item I most frequently hear mentioned when people are discussing the food at the Brewery, and I think there would have been a major uproar among the regulars had it disappeared.  Iíve had the fish and chips several times, and never been disappointed.  Theyíve also added a few items, such as ďBrennaís BLT with AvocadoĒ and a ďBlue Cajun BurgerĒ featuring blue cheese and lots of Cajun spices.

 

On our most recent visit, we decided to try the sweet potato fries, which our waitress, Lisa Brandley, recommended.  They were really good, served with a sweet dipping sauce that was described as kind of a whipped cream with spices and a little Tabasco.  I donít like sweet potatoes, and I wasnít sure what to expect, but I was glad we ordered them.  I really enjoyed them.

 

Katie had the clam chowder in a bread bowl.  Chef Javier Sotelo, who was the chef for Fishermanís Wharf (the restaurant in this location before the Brewery opened), sure knows how to make some great clam chowder, thick and creamy, loaded with clams, potatoes, etc..  And since itís on the regular menu, you donít have to wait for Friday to enjoy it, as with so many restaurants.  The bread bowl was really good too, with a crisp crust, but soft sourdough inside.  This was definitely one of the better bread bowls Iíve had, and we got some butter and finished every bite once the soup was gone.  Donít think weíve ever done that before.

 

For my dinner, I decided to try the chili cheese dog, since Iíve never had it there before.  Iíve tried most of the menu at the Brewery, but had never tried a dog, which my son has fairly regularly, and always enjoys.  Well, I can see why he does.  Now donít plan on picking this dog up and eating it, figure on a fork and a knife.  Thereís so much delicious chili smothered over this thing, you really donít have a choice.  But it was a big beef dog, with lots of chili and cheese, and I enjoyed every bite. 

 

As for the beer, Iíve tried their pilsner, the pale ale, and on this last visit, at Lisaís suggestion, a hefeweisen.  All are good, but since I prefer my beers on the light side, I have always ordered the pilsner.  Thanks to Lisa, Iíll be ordering the hefeweisen from now on, it was really good.  SMBC also has ďguest beers,Ē made by others, including Bud Light, Arrogant Bastard Ale, and others.  They change periodically, so if you want a particular beer, call to see if itís on the menu right now.

 

One thing people in or close to Sierra Madre might want to keep in mind is that SMBC2 serves food to go.  Come in and place your order, and enjoy a nice draft while itís being prepared.  Canít have a beer while your waiting at a drive-thru, but SMBC2 gives you the opportunity to relax and take the edge off on the way home from work, while getting on the better halfís good side by handling dinner for him/her at the same time.
