In my opinion, it makes a lot of sense for a local brewer to open a bar. A great palate knows what people like to drink. I feel like the conversation of opening a bar is primarily focused on drinks and food just might take 15% of the conversation. Of that 15%, 10% is based around a deep fryer. Which in my world, is not always a bad thing.
Twenty Tap has 38 taps now. I am not sure if you can find a better beer selection in town. Ale Emporium? Hmm. Either way, I feel like the good stuff is hand selected and I have never had a bad beer there. It is like having a friend that really know a lot about beer saying this is what you should drink. It is probably comparable to how you feel by reading this blog. Ha.
What I Ate: The Wrath Burger; $9.00.
Bacon, Mushrooms, Onion, Lettuce, and Creamy Ale Bleu Cheese Sauce.
I rarely order burgers at restaurants anymore. Mostly because I find it hard to beat Culvers or 96th Street Steakburgers. I rather find something that is more interesting. However, with all the toppings piled on this monster, it caught my eye.
Lets make this simple. I really liked the bun. Perfect size, not too light and not too thick. The Bleu Cheese Sauce was less Bleu Cheesy than I expected. I can’t say that it really added anything expect some fat to the burger. The burger itself was the only part that I didn’t really love. It was a touch dry. I just couldn’t put my finger on what was wrong with it. I would be interested to know if it was frozen of if they used a leaner grind than 80/20.
The battered fires were great. Loved them and there were a ton.
Would I Buy It Again? The Wrath burger – No. Twenty Tap – Yes. A different burger at Twenty Tap – Yes. It is not that I hated it, just been there and done that. I really like Twenty Tap. It is that neighborhood bar that chain neighborhood bars try to imitate. At first look at the menu, you will see sandwiches and burger, but once you start to read, you can really see the effort to do what everyone else is doing, but just a step better. Great service, good food and the finest hand picked beer selection in town. I am looking forward to my next visit.
