My friend, Brian from Heartland Beverage, has been slipping me Middle Brow brews since last summer. I’ve loved everything I’ve shoved down my hello hole. Over the last six months or so, I’ve driven past it on the way to Pipeworks and it’s been in a constant state of build.
Today, I got the chance to swing in on the new Middle Brow Bungalow with three grumpy-ass kids and my gorgeous wife on our way back to the far western suburbs (where gas is literally $0.97 cheaper and they scrunch up their faces when you say you eat ramen). All of my expectations of what this place was going to look like were SHIT compared to actually seeing it in person.
This is such an incredibly warm and comfortable space, I cannot wait to see it when the weather isn’t such a dick. All of that outdoor space paired with all of those doors and windows? This place is going to feel like that one scene in “Top Gun” where Mav finally gets in on some Kelly McGinnis! ROMANTIC AS FUUUUUU!
My wife and I shared some home made toast and a fancy (BANGING) 10.3% stout called a Milk-Eyed Mender around 10:30am, because we are responsible parents and feel we should not only drink as soon as we can stand, but we try and support every independent business we can that has incredible product and slangs toast as balls as these chonker slices were.
I got the chance to meet Pete (HASHTAG #MEETPETE), and my friend Brian was right, the dude is cute AF. I got a few beers to take with to crack next week, so I’m looking forward to spreading their bubble love stories on the Hopsmash soon. Oh, and next time we go l, we’re taking four or five of their pizzas to the face. DAMN, those looked awesome. LOVE ME SOME MIDDLE BROW. - Joel
