Big Bear’s Best Craft Beer and Pub Fare
Big Bear Lake Brewing Company serves up more than just your typical bar food, showcasing a menu that highlights fresh ingredients and nods to regional cuisines across the globe.
Begin your meal with appetizers and lighter bites like fried green beans and zucchini, soft pretzels, fried chicken skins, crab and shrimp cakes, chicken wings, beer cheese fries, the ahi poke stack garlic sesame edamame, hummus platters, and a trio of Italian, Polish, and Louisiana hot link sausages with honey mustard. Alternatively, you can start on a lighter note with a California Salad, Chicken Caesar Salad, or Chinese Chop Chicken Salad.
Sandwiches, burgers, and flatbreads are all offered at Big Bear Lake Brewing Company. Indulge the Pork’s Delight flatbread for a savory treat, or the prosciutto apple pesto flatbread for a taste of sweet with your savory. Order the Brew Burger with wagyu beef, the jalapeno patty melt, or the Widowmaker Burger with wagyu beef, pastrami, and a fried egg topped with a sriracha aioli.
Entrees on Big Bear Lake Brewing Company’s menu include items like fish tacos, angus ribeye, paella, sliced tri tip steak, the Power Bowl (a quinoa bowl with black bean puree, red bell pepper marinara, and seared cauliflower), orange glaze salmon, beer-battered fish and chips, and chicken pesto pasta caprese. The Brewery Chicken, a dish with two pan-sautéed chicken breasts covered in melted Swiss and brown butter cream sauce with cheesy potatoes and vegetables on the side, is another decadent, flavorful entrée option. For a treat, finish off with a chocolate porter brownie, blood orange sorbet, or a honey blonde apple bread pudding.
Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention how wonderful the beers are at Big Bear Lake Brewing Company! Craft concoctions made in-house, such as the High Altitude Hefeweizen, the Sidewinder Red Ale, the Gold Mine Pale Ale, and the Ode to Winslow Robust Porter, pair beautifully with each of the dishes on the Big Bear brewery’s menu. While the wine selection is limited, the craft cocktail and spirits list is extensive.
