I love any excuse to be outside a little longer. That can be a challenge when the weather gets colder.
Thankfully, Fifty West Brewing Company is set up as a family-friendly outdoor option year-round.
My husband and I decided to visit the outdoor beer garden to mix up date night.
It’s nice when a brewery embraces the seasons, especially when they make the winter more enjoyable. That’s what we loved about our winter visit to Quebec City.
Fifty West Brewing Burger Bar
The Fifty West Burger Bar has an assortment of creative burgers, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, wings, shakes, housemade soda, and root beer floats.
Steps away from where you order, you can also grab a beer or other types of adult beverages.
Ironically, we both ended up trying chicken sandwiches at the burger bar. I tried the Hot Honey Fried Chicken Sandwich.
It’s made with Hand-Breaded Chicken Breast, topped with House-Made Habanero Hot Honey, Apple Slaw, and Pickles.
I didn’t find it very spicy at all but I also love crazy stupid spicy things so I’m not a good person to ask.
My husband got the “Nevada.” It was organic grilled chicken breast made with Buffalo Bleu Cheese Sauce, Crispy Onion Straws, and Pickles.
The pictures don’t do the sandwiches justice because they are served sideways in their sandwich bags.
The menu is also kid-friendly with kids’ menu options that include a fruit or fry option with your protein of choice.
There is also a plant base patty option if you want to go meatless.
Seating at the Beer Garden
The seating at the Beer Garden is first come, first served.
I don’t think you will have a problem when it comes to seating. We visited on a Sunday night and had plenty of options.
There are two large tents plus more picnic tables outside the tents and in the sand area.
Is Fifty West Brewing Company Family-friendly?
Yes! Fifty West Brewing Company is a very family-friendly environment.
During our visit, there were lots of families with younger kids enjoying a meal in the beer tent and small kids playing in the sand.
Can you bring your dog to the Beer Garden?
Yes, but your dog needs to be on a leash and under control at all time
