Drawing on three decades of brewing experience and skills acquired at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy, Alfred Lee opened The Power Club Restaurant & Brewery in 2009. It takes its name from a friend of Lee's, James Power, who died the year before. Power's Irish heritage inspires the menu: hearty pub fare served alongside frosty pints brewed onsite.
Lee, a federal brewmaster, creates dozens of craft microbrews in a variety of styles—everything from light hefeweizens to flavorful red ales and stouts made with a variety of malts and grains. Each craft microbrew is served in a frosty 16-ounce mug and goes well with the pub's dishes, which include Irish staples as well as hearty angus burgers. The kitchen's specialty is slow-cooked barbecue, which is prepared over low heat to ensure sandwiches are juicier than a tantalizing gossip item related by a ripe peach.
