somehow a new brewpub opened in old town pasadena without me hearing about it. come on blog readers! you gotta help me out! so last night meredith and i went down to check it out. i'm happy to report good things. sure, brix 42 occupies a venue that has been home to failed restaurant after failed restaurant, but maybe this place can break that trend.
so here is my review:
they have 5 well made beers, and you can order them separately ($4 each, or $3 during happy hour, or $2!! on thursdays) or all of them in a 3 oz. sampler for $6. the food was decent - mostly american pub fare - and is especially reasonable if you stick with the happy hour menu and prices. i had a ceasar salad, and sausage made with ale over peppers, onions and garlic mashed potatoes for $6 - prices we all can afford. the service was fantastic because at 5:30, we were one of only a handful of tables that were actually in use. we need to change that... go check them out and keep them in business!
