Are you looking for a brunch without a line and long wait but all the goodness of homemade biscuits, fried chicken, eggs Benedict, french toast, steak and eggs… And is flexible enough to be casual with friends and also family friendly, offers a nice patio to dine outside, and serves brunch on Saturday and Sunday? How about also offers a Bloody Mary or a Beer Brunch with a beermosa? Did you even know you could get all those things at Burnside Brewing?
That’s right, Burnside Brewing is more than the beers they brew and a brewpub offering an excellent burger from their kitchen for lunch and dinner daily. During the respectable hours of 11 AM – 3 PM on Saturday and Sunday, they offer a brunch menu.
Although Burnside is a brewery offering beer, they also have a full bar and wine. That means that you can definitely get your Bloody Mary on here, and they are happy to make you a Beermosa, aka a beer with orange juice. You’ll even get a choice of beer for the beermosa, I recommend the Sweet Heat, a wheat beer brewed with Apricot and Scotch bonnet pepper and 2012 GABF gold medal winner, for a little added heat. Don’t worry about getting too much burn – I thought their Bloody Mary was much mroe spicy than the beermosa with Sweet Heat, though the spiciness of the Sweet Heat does vary by batch. Ask for a little taste of the beer if you’re unsure.
Ask what is the Brunch Board for the day – it changes up often, here you can see it’s a flatbread with ricotta, tomato, olive oil, mushroom, and egg. I enjoyed it as a starter as we were still working out among the group who was ordering what – order it at the same time as your drinks to share.
Inevitably multiple people in your party will be drawn and want to order the Fried Chicken & Cornbread Waffle served with Bee Local honey butter and maple syrup. Don’t fight! Just order the dish for the table.
Also to share for the table get the incredible Thick Cut Bacon, and the perfect mix of crispy and melt in your mouth of the Crushed Potatoes with romesco and herbed crema.
Burnside Brewing Brunch also offers a few new brunch options beyond the regular that you might want to consider. For instance, there’s the Burnside Hot Brown featuring texas toast, grilled turkey, bacon, mornay, and tomato.
I personally went with the Croque Madame with country ham and gruyere in a brioche sandwich, then topped with mornay and sunny up egg.
