Trying out new eateries in Austin is one of my hobbies. This time I met a friend at The Brewtorium in the South part of town. It’s a brewery, restaurant & beer garden with German-style beers plus pizza, mac & cheese and pub grub.
The place is large, open, and rustic looking, with long wooden tables and plenty of seating inside and out.
They also have special events, public and private including Pitcher Tuesday and Happy Hour Hump days.
Their menu is not too large and with plenty of choices including vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options.
My friend had been there a few times before and knew exactly what to order. I took my time reading the menu thoroughly and it was not an easy decision, but I landed on the sandwiches and chose the Traditional Reuben.
To my surprise, my friend ordered the same and said it was his choice all along since it was one of the best items on the menu.
This sandwich was made with house corned beef layered with melted Swiss cheese, freshly prepared sauerkraut, pickles, and Russian dressing, served on toasted marbled rye. And my friend was right, I can sum it up in one word: scrumptious! But I’ll add that it was fresh, soft, crunchy and creamy, all at the same time.
This is one of the restaurants that I’ll choose to come back to try a few ~or a lot~ of the other items in the menu.
