Experiencing the culture of another country can be as easy as visiting an embassy or as difficult as lassoing a flock of cross-continental migratory butterflies. Easily encounter foreign flavors with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $15 worth of Irish fare and drinks at McHale's Brewhouse.
McHale's Brewhouse carves out a portion of Chattanooga and claims it for Ireland with an authentic Irish feel, a first generation Irish cook, and a plethora of Irish eats and drinks. Prepare stomachs with a lining of meat by noshing the hearty McHale burger, a juicy beef patty with mashed potatoes, gravy, chives, bacon, and cheddar, all hugged in a sturdy soft bun (from $10). Those who prefer their meals in liquid form can slurp a bowl of nourishing stew with beer bread ($7) or request to have a basket of chicken strips ($6.50) pureed in the blender. McHale's brews their own beer on-site with a master brewer and also offers a staggering array of domestic and imported bottled beers, from the delectably refreshing Victory Prima pils ($4.50) to the mischievously hefty Rogue Shakespeare Oatmeal stout ($11.25/22 oz.). Beers on draft include the prom-king-popular Guinness stout ($4.75), as well as Sweetwater IPA ($4.50), which plans to garner acceptance through theater.
McHale's Brewhouse hosts microbrew events, as well as live music, on occasional Saturdays. Pool tables, a smoking-friendly policy, and Irish family crests painted on the walls create a timeless picture of Irish recreation that will please taste buds, charm endorphin-receptors, and quiet shrieking banshees.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press featured the opening of McHale's Brewhouse:
- With a completely renovated decor, and beer brewing and tasting onsite, customers will have a variety of choices. Brewmaster Adam Hale will offer 60 different total beers, including three to four brewed in a side room. – Ellis Smith
