Bear Creek/Beer Creek Brewing Company, Santa Fe

Update Bear Creek Brewing is now called Beer Creek Brewing. Ok, I don’t usually do this but I am reviewing Beer Creek Brewing Company again. This time instead of pizza we had sandwiches and beer. To start we had the cheese bread. Sorry, I was too busy eating to take a photo but believe me it was very good. We had the cheese bread with a delicious marinara sauce which was a dollar upcharge. When we return and we will, I will post a photo.

Then we had the only vegetarian sandwich on the menu. For a beer and pizza joint, I was very happy that there was a vegetarian sandwich option. For the record, there are pasta and salad options as well. I usually do not eat salads when I go out to eat. That is my last vegetarian resort.

We both had the Wyatt sandwich. The Wyatt is clearly marked on the menu as a veggie sandwich. In fact, the word veggie is in red type. The sandwich consisted of artichoke hearts, fire roasted peppers, portobello mushroom, provolone, a nice piece of Romaine lettuce, a slice of tomato, a slice of onion on a hoagie roll. Each sandwich comes with a pickle slice, pepperoncini, and your choice of potato chips. We had the cheddar jalapeño potato chips.

This sandwich was delicious! I was surprised at how good it was. The combination of vegetables didn’t over power each other. I hate it when one vegetable takes over my sandwich. It is different if it is named a portobello sandwich.

In fact, the little bit of sandwich I had as a leftover was better the next day. All the ingredients got to meld together. I actually liked the sandwich cold better than warm.

As always the beer selection at Bear Creek Brewing was diverse and extensive. I enjoyed a local Tumbleroot Brewing Citra Pale Ale while my better half had a Colorado Upslope IPA beer.

I was pleased that Bear Creek was busy on a Tuesday night.

On July 17 there was a review of Bear Creek Brewing in the Santa Fe New Mexican Newspaper.
