O'Fallon Brewery

I had attempted to go to the opening of the new O'Fallon Brewery O'Bar in Westport Plaza, but it was pretty jammed packed by the time I got there. I could not wait to go back at a more reasonable day and time.

I finally got my chance after returning from vacation and needed a bite to eat. We were just as excited about trying out the new menu as we were getting a flight of beer to taste!

9pm on a Friday night, the small patio was full and the main restaurant was only mildly busy at that time. I am thinking that it was probably hopping right after work for happy hour since it's in the middle of an industrial park. So it worked out best that we went for a late dinner.

We started off with an appetizer, Flash Fried Spiniach, so we could get something healthy in before the beer.

I was impressed with the range of the appetizers and menu as a whole. Not your typical bar food! (Yes, there is even a cheese plate!) A few sandwiches, salads, and flatbreads. Nice and simple. Good portion sizes...you get your money's worth, but it's not too much.

Patience got the burger...

...while I got the Veggie Hummus Wrap.

Silly me, I almost forgot the beer! Starting on the right, we split a flight of Golden Ale (light and refreshing for summer), Cherry Chocolate (delicious and not heavy), Strawberry Best (fruity summer beer for sure), and the Porter (waaaaay too heavy for this time of year).

Not pictured is the pint of King Louie Stout that Patience loves!

We both had wanted their Homemade Mac and Cheese, but they ran out...we'll definitely have to go back for that!
