Ian Clark, formerly of Centro and Jax Fish House, has officially nailed it with Bru handbuilt ales & eats in Boulder.
He could have stopped at unfiltered ales and sourdough pizza. That would have clinched it for me, but he took it to eleven. Here’s what to try at Bru:
– Citrum IPA: this is one of my favorite Colorado IPAs (the others being Bootstrap’s Insane Rush, Odell, Avery, and Ska’s Modus Hoperandi).
– Sourdough basil (margherita) pizza… they’ll substitute locally available spinach if basil is not in season.
– Beer mustard butter – are you kidding me? This is the peak of culinary creativity. Do I bathe in it or eat it? Hey, I can bathe in it *and* eat it! (thanks, Gaffigan)
Bru should top your list of Boulder brewery destinations, and happy hour is a steal. Check out special Bru beer events here.
Drool factor follows…
Bru’s 5-beer sampler is whatever you want it to be. You choose, they serve, everyone wins.
At Bru, trail mix means almonds, caramel corn, pecans, and spice. Order from the happy hour menu, and a huge portion is $2.
Bru’s Citrum is Colorado’s finest unfiltered IPA, IMHO.
Why isn’t all pizza made of sourdough? I just ate a ‘Merican-size dinner, and this still makes me hungry.
Sometimes you have to pass on pizza and eat salad, so your salad should at least have a healthy damn poached egg on it.
Slather your loaf with Bru’s tasty beer mustard butter.
Wood-roasted veggies w/beer vinegar. Beta carotene, anyone?
