BrainDead Brewing is known for offering great beer and great food. They boast 42 taps at their bar, complete with a dozen of their own beers which are brewed onsite. Half of these beers are seasonal beer offerings and special editions so they get rotated quite frequently. Beyond their own beers they also feature another 30 craft beers. If you fall in love with a beer you can always take it home with you in a growler! Beyond the beer is their menu of elevated American bar fare. Offering brunch, lunch and an “anytime” menu, you can stop by BrainDead for a flight and a meal at any time of the day. Their menu is playful, as evident with their “Pickle Rick Jar” starter and their “Thick and Morty” and “Cheezus is King” sandwiches. We recommend trying any number of their sandwiches as they are all delicious, but one of our favorites is the Parlor Patty Melt, which they insist isn’t the greatest Patty Melt in the world, it’s just a tribute to the greatest. This sandwich consists of a brisket and bacon patty, melted American cheese and caramelized onions served on fresh sourdough. It’s beauty lies in the simplicity with the flavors of the high quality ingredients doing all of the work. Our favorite entrée may have been their Cornmeal Dusted Catfish that comes with creamed kale and their house hot sauce remoulade. Catfish has long been a favorite in Texas and BrainDead Brewing does it right!
