$15 for $30 Worth of Upscale American Cuisine and Handcrafted Beer
The menu includes upscale American dishes such as the lobster-and-jumbo-lump-crab-cake sandwich ($16.50), the Kobe beef cheeseburger ($13.95), and aged beef bistro steak medallions served with gorgonzola potato wedges ($20.50).
Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest ones—Gordon Biersch began with the modest mission of pairing handcrafted beer with made-from-scratch food. Twenty years later, this blueprint has spawned more than 30 Gordon Biersch locations that span the U.S. and Pacific. At most locations, on-site breweries blend Gordon Biersch’s award-winning beers and serve them in 22-ounce glasses, which hold more beer than a pint glass or 100 sewing thimbles. Most batches include seasonal brews and signature brews such as the German Schwarzbier, a dark lager with a light body and a dry-roasted-coffee finish.
To complement the brews, chefs prepare an expansive menu of elevated American cuisine that includes dishes such as pasta jambalaya with chicken, shrimp, ham, and Andouille sausage, and cedar-plank pecan-crusted salmon topped with a honey-pecan crust and a dill cream sauce. Mixologists also serve up specialty cocktails and an extensive list of wines.
