Alvarado Street Brewery & Grill Restaurant Review

: Take a seat in the boisterous, modern dining room with its sleek lines, stainless steel and blonde wood. As an alternative to climbing into tall chairs, let the hostess know you'd prefer a traditional table closer to the ground or on the dog-friendly patio. If you love beer, the selection of nine house-made brews will delight. If you don’t, the food is still worth the trip. The Canadian classic poutine is reinterpreted with tender pork belly, mozzarella curds and beer gravy over shoestring fries that manage to retain their crunch. Or try the brewer's sausage board with three kinds of sausage, blue cheese and pickled veg. Top off your meal with the s'mores parfait: chocolate mousse, graham cracker crumbs and marshmallow crème.
