The Brewery Project: San Marcos Brewery & Grill
San Marcos Brewery & Grill. While the decor could use some updating, the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The staff are as knowledgeable about the beer as they are the food, which is very good. I wouldn't use the word "gourmet" to describe their food, but that isn't what they're going for. The dishes they offer are delicious, and provide a wonderful backdrop for enjoying the beer. Complimenting each other perfectly, it makes for a great meal and an overall enjoyable experience. I have been a fan of their Pompous Ass Ale for quite some time, but was able to try a couple new brews this time around. I started off with their Two Timing IPA. It was good, but not overly hoppy. Very drinkable, but hard to classify as an IPA, this beer's 8% alcohol could sneak up on you if you weren't careful. Next I tried their Belgian Gold, aka: Grabassier. The alcohol was much more predominant in this one, also sitting at 8%. It was quite sweet, serving as the perfect digestif to finish off my meal. I've never been disappointed here and doubt I ever will be. I'm already looking forward to my next visit and the opportunity to try more of their good food and great beer.
