More Guerrilla Bar Fare with Jersey Mike's Super Italian Sub and the Brooklyn Brewery's New Summer Ale at Hans' Bierhaus
It was one of those-super gorgeous spring days in Houston. What better to do than ransack some bar with food from another joint? Hans' Bierhaus doesn't have food, anyway, except for some chips behind the bar.
This was actually the first time we tried Jersey Mike's or Brooklyn Brewery's Summer Ale. Both were fantastic.
For $9.99, you can get a humongous sandwich filled with deli meats like provolone, ham, prosciuttini, cappacuolo, salami and pepperoni, sliced to order right in front of you. Mike calls this the Super Italian. This hoagie makes Subways little nine grams of fat look like nothing.
The Brooklyn Summer Ale was fantastic -- really crisp and refreshing, with a clean finish, hints of wheat and yeast and subtle citrus accents...Oh forget it, it was just a good damn beer. We drank and ate and argued about bocce ball rules. Ahh....spring.
