Hunger Repealed!

Wednesday, December 5th, marked the 79th anniversary of the 21st amendment, which repealed Prohibition (aka the 18th Amendment, which was ironically enacted on my birthday). In honor of this occasion, I decided to grab a bite and a few beers at the Prohibition Taproom. Despite being unseasonably warm for December, I tend to enjoy darker beers during these months where the sun decides it’s gonna go home before 5 PM, and my bartender Jason suggested two delicious porters for me.

First up was the Vanilla Porter from Breckenridge Brewery. It was delicious, smooth and tasty; I could have drunk this beer all night.

Next was the Edmund Fitzgerald, from Great Lakes Brewing. A little bit more bodied then my previous beer with a distinctive coffee taste; it was still good but definitely a sipper.

Oh, the real reason I was here? To try their burger of course! The Pub Burger is 8 oz. of choice ground Chuck with lettuce, roasted cowboy onions and home made tomato jam. House cut fries and your choice of cheese (Jack, Cheddar, Blue or Brie). It came on a soft ciabatta roll and for only $10, there was definitely no sticker shock here.

My burger was cooked perfectly to medium FINALLY, after a recent series of misses in the temperature department. The ciabatta roll was very complimentary and a welcoming change from those “other buns”. Nice big piece of bibb lettuce and the tomato jam spread was pretty tasty. I went with the white cheddar as my cheese option and, despite my being weird about onion consumption at times (hate raw onions, am so-so about cooked ones), the caramelized onions were a treat; I didn’t even pick them off!

I definitely have to put the Pub burger in my top 5 burgers in town so far. Everything about it just made for the perfect burger eating experience.

Burger rating? “A”.
