Golden Valley Brewing

What a groovy Football filled weekend! 
Friday night lights. Watching my Frosh stomp around with the Varsity, super exciting!
A late night of high school football playoffs, yielded us a late Friday night visit.
With frigid temps, and an amazing football win, we were thrilled to pull up and find the Beaverton Golden Valley Brewing still serving to all ages.

Warmly greeted, our experience was spot on. This was our families second adventure to GVB.
The service was great. The food was HOT! 

Most importantly, we didn't get snubbed at the door because we rolled in after 10pm, with our family. 
For many of us beer imbibing, pub appreciating patrons, a family friendly late night atmosphere, is a deal breaker. Having an inviting brewery to patronize, where we aren't snubbed at the door is beyond refreshing.
We started our feast with Beer Battered Onion Rings, complimented by a cold round of brewskies. Which varied from the Dundee Porter, to the Bald Peak IPA, finishing with the Muddy Valley Oatmeal Stout. My sons thoroughly enjoyed the house Craft Rootbeer option.
Both the beer and root beer were outstanding!

The Bald Peak IPA was wonderfully fragrant, deep hop aroma, followed with a crisp bite, finished clean.
The Dundee Porter had a deep drop, dancing on the palette with a toasty kick.
The Oatmeal Stout, hands down featured the warmest malt delivery I've had in a while. The essence of chocolate and coffee roast aroma warmed me up from the frigid temps outside.

The food was scrumptious. I enjoyed the Northwest Veggie Sandwich, served Hot on an olive ciabatta bread, the beet addition, pulled the entire sandwich together. My husband chowed down on the Southwest Rice bowl, my 15 year old son enjoyed the house Fettuccine Alfredo, and my little guy swooned about his handcrafted, locally raised, fresh Hamburger. On a side note, GVB is 1 out of only 12 restaurants NATIONWIDE that raise their own cattle! Stand up appreciation right there. They know exactly where their ingredients come from. They definitely give a damn. THANK YOU Golden Valley Brewing. 

Golden Valley Brewing is two thumbs UP! WAY UP! 

Local sourced, graciously open, polite, no question a classy joint.

We'll be back!!!

I'll be absolutely certain, to spread the positive word around my hood!
Cheers! Until the next episode.
