Whether I'm sipping on a light session beer or a palate wrecking IIPA it's nice to have something to nibble on between sips and conversation. So I was thinking(a dangerous activity), what are everyone else's favorite food items when they're at a brewpub or just kicking it with their drinking buddies?
If you had to create an appetizer/snack menu for a brewpub what would be on it? Would it be simple for the sanity of the chef or would it be gourmet to add another layer to your pub's identity?
I'm not planning on opening a brewpub, but maybe someone who is will be inspired by this list.

Smothered Fries
Covered in your choice of Mozzarella or Cheddar cheeses, bacon, green onions,and Chili

Soft Pretzels
Two large pretzels complemented by stone ground mustard and beer cheese

Breakfast Sampler
Five silver dollar pancakes, hashbrowns , 3 strips of bacon or 3 sausage links, and 2 eggs cooked to order

Fresh Chips
Fresh cut deep fried potato chips, made daily

Chicken wings
8 wings available coated in: Hot, mild, honey mustard, cajun rub, and Hot BBQ sauces

I hate going to a brew pub and they decide to serve pretentious culinary food. At a pub, I want pub food. The smothered fries, pretzels, chicken wings/tenders, burgers, pizza. Stuff like that. Anything that has a 'presentation'....should not be there. At least, that's what I want.

I agree with Hammy71. When I go to a brew pub I want food that is terrible for you but taste awesome!

Other than what's already been listed, jalapeno poppers, nachos and potato skins are great.

I wish some bars around here would start offering fried pickles. You just don't see them out here.

I am agreeing with all the above post.
non pretentious, basic and a bit salty
Soft pretzels and fried pickles a bonus!

In addition to the great choices already listed, I'll add pickled sausages, pickled eggs, baskets of onion rings, taquitos, mini-chimis, and of course, pistachios. I used to hang out at a bar that had a big gumball machine, but it dispensed pistachio nuts instead of gum. We'd get a big double handful & sit there drinking beer & eating pistachios while playing backgammon & waiting for the pool table to open up.
Regards, GF.

I like pizza with my beer. We have a great high quality pizza joint that cares about the food they serve and the beers they brew and keep in house. That makes my dining options easy. Three day aged pizza dough makes for outstanding flavor in their pies, and they only use fresh, high quality ingredients for toppings.

My old neighborhood craft beer place did something called Scottish nachos - really thin sliced potatoes baked and covered with smoked pulled pork, cheese, onions, sour cream, etc. best pub grub ever.

Call me pretentious, but I have had good mussels and fries with some Belgian beers while in northern France and I was a happy dude. I will say a good burger and fries with an IPA is prettty hard to beat though.

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt
Not Commit Adultery," and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians...It creates a hostile work environment.
