Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery
I went to this place last weekend after I heard rave reviews about its craft beer selection from a few of my co-workers. I had two buddies with me who were equally interested in trying out the craft beers this place is famed for. And now I understand why they are so famed in Broomfield. Craft beers are definitely becoming very popular in the whole of America and Canada and Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery does a pretty good job of it. Their in-house on-location brewery makes many beers and if you are like me, it is a lot of fun to try out new beers. We started off with the beer sampler which basically means 6 kinds of craft beers for only $6. Their Red, White and Blonde beers were quite spicy and extremely nice though their inability to list the IBU meant that we did not really know the kind of bitterness to expect. The Stout, Brown and IPA beers were very very bitter, which to me is a pretty good thing. I wouldn’t know what other people would think about it though. However, there are beers that will suit almost everyone. There are lighter beers as well. Anyway, that’s enough about the beers. But you do get the idea that this place has a great brewery, don’t you?
Moving on to the food. The food typically is great with a large number of choices. I had the Nachos with the chicken and guacamole. I can only say that though this is an appetizer, it was HUGE! And very tasty! But why serve such huge appetizers and then still expect people to order main courses? Anyway, I was too full with all the beers and the food so I skipped the main course. My buddies had the Turkey meatloaf and the Hazelnut crusted chicken as we are all trying to eat healthy these days. However, if you like your red meat, you will have lots of unhealthier options to choose from like the Barbeque pork sandwich!
Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery is a place that is well-maintained and has a great staff. The waiters and friendly and knowledgeable about the beers served here, as they should be. I almost think that our server for the evening was actually drinking as much as we were, because she seemed to be having a really good time! I think it’s great to be in a place where the staff is happy and friendly.
The great thing about a place like Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery is that it is part of a big restaurant chain and therefore has strict quality standards. I expect good service and great food when I walk into a MacDonalds’ with my kids and the same goes for the Rock Bottom chain. The service, food and beers are fantastic. Also, this place is great for the whole family to come in and have some fun. The food is kid-friendly and you don’t have to worry if anyone has special food needs because the staff will see to it. I am definitely coming here again.
