Aside from the fantastic selection of beer, Animas Brewing Company has an unbeatable menu of delicious comfort food. Everything, including the condiments, is made from scratch. Trust us when we say that you can taste the difference! Start your meal off with their famous wings, served with a garlic ale, jerk, or sarsaparilla barbecue sauce. The house-made pretzels are another favorite. They are served with an ale dip and their homemade mustard. If you’d prefer to begin your meal on a lighter note, check out their selection of salads. From a grilled Caesar salad to a spinach salad with a sweet tomato vinaigrette, these choices won’t leave you feeling too heavy.
For an entree, dig into one of the Irish pasties. Go the traditional route with shaved sirloin, rutabaga, turnip, carrots, potatoes, and onions with an ale gravy and housemade ketchup. There’s even a vegetarian option, with wild mushrooms instead of the sirloin. For a twist on the classic hamburger, check out their selection of craft burgers. These are served with a patty made with local beef as well as another type of meat, like house-smoke brisket or fresh corned beef. Be sure to get the freshly made chips as your side!
