Golden Road Brewing is right down the street from my work and as a special Valentine's day treat Sabrina and I decided to head over there for lunch, and more importantly a beer. The space is really awesome. Industrial and warehouse like, but welcoming and hip.
I was very excited to try this place since Adam's company will be distributing their beers, packaged in cans by the way, in the Orange County area. Unfortunately, they only had 4 of their own beers on tap. I had the Get Up Offa That Brown. It was very tasty and had a nice depth of flavor. Sabrina had their Hefeweizen, which I surprisingly enjoyed. I'm not a big fan of Hefs but this one packs a nice banana flavor that was unique and enjoyable. Also, their guest tap list was impressive. Overall this was a great place to grab a drink. The outdoor seating was enjoyable and the staff was friendly and informative.
But there was one problem, the food fell just short of good. I mean, it definitely wasn't bad. It just wasn't great. It was missing that special something.
I look forward to going back to Golden Road for the atmosphere and the beer and I will for sure try some of their other menu items before I write them off entirely in the food department.
Let me know what you think of Golden Road - the beer and food!
Peace, love, beer, and happiness!
