Dunsmuir Brewery Works - Memphis Style Pulled Pork Sandwich
One of my favorite eateries in South Siskiyou County is the Dunsmuir Brewery Works. When I ate there about a month ago, I had a burger to go and a beer while I waited. I told myself I would order the Memphis Style Pulled Pork Sandwich the next time I went. When DBW first opened they didn’t even have a burger on their menu so I usually ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich. It was always a flavorful sandwich that I wanted to eat again. I went south on Sunday with a friend and remembered that I wanted to order the pork sandwich. It was even better than I recalled. The meat was cooked nicely with nice smokey BBQ flavor. I think they add caramelized onions that sweeten and enrich the BBQ sauce.
My friend had the Seafood Louie Salad with trout that the brewery folks smoke on-site. My friend said the salad was “perfectly dressed with the perfect amount of dressing.” I can agree with that. When eating out I often order dressing on the side to avoid having a salad drowning in dressing. At DBW for the side I ordered a green salad with tomato vinaigrette dress. The salad is made with spring greens, long green beans and it had the perfect amount of dressing on it.
The beer menu had many interesting options. To accompany my sandwich I had the German Gose beer, which was refreshing crisp with citrus undertones...delicious! They change their ale style brew along with seasons offering lighter crisper beers in the summer and heavier beers in the winter.
They make their own root beer and offer root beer floats for a summer treat.
Dunsmuir Brewery Works is a family owned and operated micro-brew pub serving very tasty food in the charming historic district of downtown Dunsmuir. Their menu focuses on lunch and dinners with daily specials. There is live music most weekends. The venue is family friendly, even the patio is dog friendly. During the summer they are open 7 days a week.
