As long as I can remember there has been a restaurant in the Old City Hall Mall in downtown, Regina. The present establishment has been there for a number of years and has a reputation for excellent beers on tap. Not being a beer drinker, I go for the food. I was here recently for a work function with some co-workers who enjoyed sampling the various beers. For a Saturday night, and despite the usual huge televisions on the walls, I liked the fact that it wasn’t so noisy that we couldn’t talk.
There are some gluten-free options here and many of the menu items contain beer, hence the name. I had wanted to have mussels and frites, something I have had in the past and is hard to come by in many restaurants in this land-locked province. Sadly they evaded me again as they are no longer on the menu. So I tried the lamb burger ($18) and it was delicious. The wine list is quite small, as I said the emphasis is definitely on the beer. However, I had a glass of the Finca, a nice Malbec from Argentina ($8.00), and it was very good and went well with the lamb. A coffee ($3.00) rounded off the meal for me. My friends also enjoyed their meals: English Pint Pie (lamb); Cajun trout; and seafood mac and cheese.
