It’s been over a year since my original visit to Situation Brewing. We were looking for a place to chill after dinner on a Thursday evening so I suggested we check out SB. The place was packed when we arrived around 9:30pm. Shocking. We were quoted a 20-30 minute wait so we put our name down and walked out the door to check out another spot. 30 seconds later, we got a call back that a table had opened up so we turned around and headed back.
We decided to share two sets of beer flights to try the flavours that appealed most to us. Oddly, they don’t advertise the flights on their menu. We ordered by telling the waitress the four that we didn’t want haha. There were a dozen flavours on tap.
I have yet to try any food on the menu but according to B, the mac & cheese is amaze-balls.
Beer menu with descriptions.
It’s pretty loud inside. One of the workers suggested that we spin the table sideways so that we would a bit closer to each other, which actually worked wonders.
Beer flight #1 ($10.00)
From top left: Spring fever saison, afternooner tea saison, gateway wheat ale and devils canoe ESB. I’ve had the afternooner tea saison several times. Still my favourite of the bunch.
Beer flight #2
From bottom left: Bent Stick BS wit (this was their guest tap), pickled padre barley wine, extrovert red ale and WTF blood orange sour. B’s favourite was the Bent Stick. Mine was the blood orange sour although it wasn’t a true sour.
Truthfully, none of the flavours really stood out. At least the price is right ($2.50/flight). Not sure if we’ll be back anytime soon.
