Want good food and a good time in Newport Beach? Of course you do! If you’re looking for a great time while you’re out on the Peninsula and good food, head to Newport Beach Brewing Company – aka “BrewCo.” It sits right on Newport Blvd. and 30th street, next to Rudy’s, Malarky’s, and Mama D’s and is a local favorite for its brews (obviously), but also for its laid back atmosphere and exceptional menu.
Walking into a brewery, you can never be sure exactly how good the food will be, but let me assure you – BrewCo is awesome. The menu has been upgraded over the years and gives both bar-goers and foodies alike something to bite into. My personal favorite is the BBQ Chicken Salad, not something you’d expect, but it is new and it is delicious. Another good food investment is the BrewCo Ceviche. It is served with tortilla chips and has been a fan favorite at our table many times!
While the food is awesome, BrewCo also offers a fantastic time. The atmosphere is fun and comfortable and you seem to make friends no matter where you’re at in the restaurant. Additionally (and I know, this is not a happy hour review)BrewCo has a great beer selection. Be on the lookout for the spinning wheel – if it hits a certain brew, it can go on “special” right away.
All in all, this is one of my favorite places on the Peninsula and I highly recommend it – especially to all you Arizona Wildcats (it’s the fan bar!).
