The hamburger, America’s national meal, has always been served during Independence Day cookouts and the competitive-eating portion of presidential debates. Engage in a meaty repartee with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get cheeseburgers, fries, and drinks for two with dessert to share at La Jolla Brew House (up to a $42 total value). This meal includes:
- Two classic cheeseburgers, mushroom swiss burgers, or BH burgers served with choice of house fries or sweet-potato fries (up to a $23 value)
- Two pints of beer or 16-ounce sodas (up to a $14 value)
- One hot fudge brownie sundae to share (a $5 value)
La Jolla Brew House’s chef, Adam Griffin, buns up natural Brandt beef burgers and their chicken or veggie counterparts as bartenders wet whistles with more than two dozen craft beers on tap. Accompanied by house or sweet-potato fries, the BH burger flaunts its grilled façade, whereas the classic cheeseburger modestly drapes itself with cheddar or swiss and the mushroom swiss burger displays a bevy of sauteed mushrooms. Diners may substitute a chicken breast or vegetarian patty for red-meat disks as well as choose from a trio of chocolaty or creamy desserts to share or barter over.
Celebrate San Diego Beer Week, ending on November 13, at La Jolla Brew House with a frosty pint of Oceanside Aleworks and Magic Hat #9, which may be enjoyed on the spacious, pet-friendly patio in the warmth of the outdoor fire pit or in the football-tinted glow of the private party room with 25 high-definition TVs and two big-screen projectors.
La Jolla Brew House
La Jolla Brew House fills four to seven of its taps with its own craft beers, brewed in the 30-barrel microbrewery located on site. Within the spacious confines of the sports bar or outside on a patio, friends can gather to cheer their favorite teams, chow on pub food, and sip plenty of distinctive beers. In addition to rotating house brews—which have included IPAs and stouts—bartenders crack open bottles of specialty beers from Belgian breweries, where the machines are not made of waffles—they're made of crepes.
Twenty flat-screen TVs broadcast games of football throughout the interior of the bar, and the comfortable patio has one 55-inch widescreen TV as well as a fire pit. All of the eatery and drinkery's seating accommodates dining on burgers—including one topped with house-made guacamole and jalapeños—and slices of hand-tossed pizza. At select times, The Brew House offers tours of their brewery. The Brew House also prides itself on being pet friendly; in addition to a menu of "canine cuisine," which dogs can enjoy on the patio, the staff holds regular "yappy hours" that often promote local animal organizations.
