Brix & Brews & NY Deli (Sunset Beach)

StarStarStarStar




Signage.



Daily Specials - I saw a couple of burgers on their way out of the kitchen and they looked really good.  "Rib Night" also looks enticing.



The main draw for coming here in the first place, was the Craft Beer.  I got a Beer Flight.


 
They have around 22 taps of revolving delicious beer (on top of the bottled beer that they also carry).



Top 'O The Heap - Pastrami on Rye with a Pickle Spear & Mustard on the side.  I got my Sandwich with Garlic Fries.



Green Flash Brewing Company's Le Freak.



The Associate (Pastrami, Cheese, Dill Pickle, Red Onion & Brix Special Sauce with Homemade Potato Chips & Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce.



Luckily, we played nice [this day].
