Near Riverside Park in West Bend, a short walk upstream and over a bridge you can find the Riverside Brewery and Restaurant, a fantastic local establishment featuring excellent food and beverages. As the name implies, many of the beverages are made on site where you can experience drinks that you are unlikely to find anywhere else. An established microbrewery in downtown West Bend.
During a recent visit to Riverside Brewery our guests enjoyed slow cooked barbecue ribs with a home brewed beer and flavorful orange cream soda. After our friendly waitress took our order, our drinks arrived quickly in attractive glasses. Fresh rolls or bread allowed us to whet our appetites, but there is a great selection of other appetizers as well. The soup and salad that we each tried were very good, but the highlight was definitely the ribs.
Riverside Brewery has a number of excellent barbecue sauces, made on site, that perfectly compliment the flavor and texture of the ribs. The slow cooking process resulted in a tender rib that still had sufficient texture for a great eating experience during the main course.
We chose to risk it all for dessert by selecting the “Death by Chocolate” item from the dessert menu which also included “Chocolate Lava” and a variety of cheesecake and other great bites. We survived the “Death by Chocolate” but don’t be too surprised if you feel heavenly while eating this dessert.
A visit to Riverside Brewery will really enhance your visit. If you are in town on a weekday there is a happy hour from 3:00-5:00PM where you can save $1.00 off the price of all sizes of microbrews. What better way to sample the locally brewed favorites! For a menu, hours of service, food and drink menu and a virtual tour click here: http://riversidebreweryandrestaurant.com/index.shtml
