Issaqauah Brew House has more than just beer



The Brew House offers all sorts of options for seating, from the bar, to tables to booths. The walls are covered with beer paraphernalia, old signs, beer logos and the many awards the brewery has won. The background music was from the ‘80s, Journey and Black Sabbath to name a few. The wall separating the restaurant and the brewery is glass, so customers can see the brewing tanks from the tables. The tables themselves are big and sturdy, and topped with old beer bottles turned into salt and pepper shakers.


The menu is varied, with soup, salad, burgers and sandwiches, not to mention all the varieties of beer offered. Lunch time also includes a Hoppy Meal, where a beer and a toy is $1 more than the meal. I tried the Kobe hamburger, which came with toppings on the side including Wasabi mayo, so you could add as much as you wanted. My dining partners, our photographer and sports reporter, ordered chili and soup and salad respectively. My burger was excellent, and although I was hesitant to try the mayo at first, I found that I really enjoyed it.


It is seat-yourself at the Brew House and shortly after we had seated ourselves our waitress came over with our menus and drink orders. While I chose water (I still had to write after all) our photographer had the chocolate stout, which he assured me was excellent. Our waitress didn’t rush us while we deliberated but instead checked back frequently, also stopping to fill up our water. The service was timely.

Would I eat here again?

With pleasure. The food was excellent and filling, and the restaurant has an easy and relaxed atmosphere that makes for good eating.
