Kegs & Eggs at DryHop Brewers (aka Brunch)
Kegs and eggs sounds like something I did in college, but at DryHop in Lakeview it means brunch!
With an atmosphere that feels like your neighborhood front porch, DryHop made a name for itself with delicious burgers and craft beer. The new brunch menu expands the brew house’s offering and gives us a reason to order a beer before noon.
At first glance the menu is creative, fun and it includes intriguing phrase like “House-made Dragon Sauce,” “Belgian Frites” and something called “liquid cheesecake.”
With a closer eye we notice the brunch staples like omelets, smoked bacon and biscuits with sausage gravy. But you can get those items almost anywhere, so here’s the breakdown of what makes brunch at DryHop a bit different.
- The Captain’s French Toast: fresh Challah bread dipped in a rum-spiked egg & cream batter, ‘crusted’ in Captain Crunch cereal, and accompanied by warm bourbon maple syrup, blueberries and the aforementioned “liquid cheesecake.”
- Hank's Plate: two eggs, three slices of Broadbent's Hickory Smoked Bacon with brown sugar black pepper glaze, grandma's potato casserole, & a biscuit with country sausage gravy. I’m not sure who Hank is, but I like his style.
- Belgian Frites: hops salt, garlic parmesan aioli, and “House-made Dragon Sauce.”
- Poutine: Belgian Frites with Broadbent’s Hickory Smoked Bacon, aged cheddar, scallions, and smoked country sausage gravy.
Burger: Dryhop's custom blend of naturally raised brisket and short rib with ancho chile-tomato jam, arugula, pickled sweet onions, and a heap of creamy aged raw milk cheddar (with the option to add on Broadbent’s Hickory Smoked Bacon or an egg)
With a creative menu like this, there’s no question
kegs and eggs brunch at DryHop is an elevated experience compared to your college days and your usual brunch spot.
Dryhop offers brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11:00am - 3:00pm. See you there!
