The pub portion of BRC Gastropub in the Heights is well represented, thanks to some 28 craft beers on tap along the bar, plus dozens of other varieties held below in bottles. There’s also a wine list as thick as an uncut slab of bacon, making the libations a focal point for this funky, red-printed space, where hanging lights loom low over high-top tables and a back patio offers simple communal seating. For fans of bacon – and who isn’t? – BRC’s “gastro” side serves housemade bacon jam that’s perfect for slathering on biscuits, while hefty hamburgers, a meatball mac ‘n’ cheese and unrestrictive milkshakes are enough to make any calorie counter sweat. Add a growler of local craft beer and call it a meal – or several meals in one.
