Review // Huss Brewing Co. - Uptown
I’m a beer lover and a huge fan of HUSS Brewing, especially their Koffee Kolsch, which tastes just like if a smooth brewed coffee and beer had a baby and decided to have a party in your mouth. I felt like the luckiest gal in the world when they opened their second taproom up the street from me in Uptown Plaza! We came in on a weekday and ordered a beer flight. The beers of course, did not disappoint. They also carry Papago Brewing Co. and we enjoyed the Papago Coconut Joe as well as their red ale and IPA. Even though it’s newly opened, the taproom has a bright, open vibe that’s perfect for an after work drink.
The menu is mostly small bites and shareable plates, but their “Noble Toast” looked appealing. HUSS bakes the bread for 36 hours and uses organic ingredients to put on top of it, and though I didn’t get to try it this time, I will definitely be back for that.
My only gripe with HUSS is that it’s a little overpriced in my opinion. The “Noble Toast” is $8-$10, boards are between $13-14 and our flights were $3-4 for smaller pours that looked to be 2oz. Usually when I order a flight from other beer establishments, it comes out to a little less than ordering a regular 12oz, or at least giving me more beer for my bucks. Not the case here. With Sun Up, Central Ale, and Rott n’ Grapes not far from HUSS, I would think twice about coming here if my intention is to get the most bang for my buck. In addition, I would encourage more beer loving gal pals to come out there. While I was there, no lie, I was the only woman besides the bartender in the establishment (see picture).
If you do decide to check it out, don’t forget to order their Koffee Kolsch!
