Brick West debuts new spring menu
Patio season is upon us, and to celebrate a return to safe, outdoor dining, Brick West Brewing Co. in west downtown has launched a new spring food menu.
Snacks to share include nachos and a hummus plate, plus there’s a couple options for the kiddos. One highlight of the new menu: several new sausages from local Sonnenberg’s Market, including Italian, Andouille and smoked bratwurst. There also are a couple of cold sandwiches to round things out; all handhelds come with a side of Tim’s Cascade chips, a cup of soup or salad.
Brick West is gearing up for a summer of outdoor events on its expansive patio adjacent to a large public plaza, ranging from live music and outdoor yoga to pet adoption showcases.
