Sweat Shop Brew Kitchen : : A Pleb's Food Diary

There's ~80 articles on this here blog that I've written. None of them have been about food. This is because, despite my love for stuffing heavily calorific foodstuffs into my face, it often doesn't get a whole lot more fancy than that. The spectrum starts at pizza and ends at burritos, once in a blue moon orbiting the world of sushi. So, when the folks at Sweat Shop Brew Kitchen asked us if we wanted to try their new menu (ft. items like 'Mac N Cheese Morsels' - yes, literally deep fried macaroni and cheese), of course my response was 'yuh.' I would potentially figure out how to write about it later. For now, I was hungry.


I've known Sweat Shop as the spot David Dallas got up to Shenanigans in for a minute now, but I'd not yet managed to get myself to the Sales St bar/kitchen. The place is ginormous. The bar staff told me they fit about 500 odd in the bar on weekends. It is legitimately a mini warehouse full of beer and smoked meats. The beer, they make themselves (fancy), and so too do they smoke their meats (fancy fancy).

Full disclosure, only about a year ago I retired a six year bent on vegetarian (due to a few health issues, to all ye coming at me with pitchforks). In the several months since, I've began 'exploring' (by way of fast food) meat options, and have honestly been pretty let down by a barrage of sketchy patties et al. What Sweat Shop put in front of us was quite different.


Between myself and Toni, we ordered Smoke Beef Brisket, the Buffalo Spiced Chicken Burger, and Mac N Cheese Morsels (definitively better than anything of similar shape and aesthetic; they str8 up dominate Chicken Nuggets). Toni also got some beers, because we needed to have beers, because they made beers in the goddamn backroom of the establishment. Cue decision paralysis, she ordered a wee house selection of their three finest.


Unanticipatedly, the Smoke Beef Brisket turned up with what a foodie's nightmare like myself would unimaginatively label a pita bread. The menu noted it came with a brioche bun, but I wasn't sure what I brioche bun looked like (I Googled it, this definitely looked more like a pita bread). Nonetheless, what we had was something like a pita bread, and it was 10/10 perfect for piling with brisket and coleslaw and eating like a sambo. And that brisket was fiyah. V good, def recommend.

Then was the Buffalo Spiced Grilled Chicken Burger. By this time, we were pretty quickly running out of gas to continue on the chow - side-note on fact that despite a somewhat expenny looking menu, these meals will fill you up like you've never before been. Because we're troopers (my job is ~so hard~), we pushed through and were rewarded with a damn, damn good burg. The buns were actually legit brioche (so, I do know how that tastes now, and it tastes near heavenly), and the chicken to bun ratio was ample. Slaw and ranch rounded the experience out so well as to see this brutish beauty rank in the upper echelon of my burger memories.


Oh, and the Mac N Cheese Morsels. Please, for your own convenience, forever drop your sacrilegious Kraft and order some of these happiness nuggets.

    The dog and its owner will go through a series of ‘tests” to show that the dog knows and can obey basic obedience commands such as sit, down, sit & stay, down & stay, and come. It will be bad enough separated from his owners but then to be put in a crate for the first time will cause your four legged companion stress. Additionally, there is always going to be equipment that is necessary for you to run your business as well.

    “Well, Online casino X just another website about best online casino”,
    – a visitor may think. They would be wrong, though.
    Our goal is to become the biggest hacker and internet criminals we can be.
    We hack the internet and make money promoting casinos.
    With growing popularity and number of best online casinos, it’s getting harder to select the best and most interesting ones.

    That is why we intend to destroy the industry even more.
    We do this by hacking as many websites as we can. We promote 888 Casino
    Spin Palace Casino
    Eurogrand Casino
    Winner Casino
    William Hill Casino

    And they risk their licenses because of that, but we do
    not care. 888 Casino,Spin Palace Casino ,Eurogrand Casino
    ,Winner Casino ,William Hill Casino

    With growing popularity and number of best online casinos,
    it’s getting harder to select the best and most interesting
    ones. There are too may details to consider,
    too many games, and too many rules in the best casino online.
    Even bonuses that are supposed to attract players sometimes contribute to
    overall confusion due to their complicated rules.
    With our help, even a beginning player will be able to understand all these issues and find best casinos online USA.

    This is a good start toward leash training puppies.
    It will take patience and persistence, but armed with these qualities and practice, you
    will be successful. A veterinarian or breeder can give you the names of the best possible professional trainers who can come to your place to get the dog trained.

    READ programs, whether found in classrooms or libraries,
    have gained popularity across the US and Canada. It is very important to
    never use steady pressure with a training collar. Therefore,
    it is best to begin while they are at a young age.

    For him to say that’s a bad shot, I mean, that’s just kinda being a poor sport. If anything, it was bad defense. ’Cause I had the ball in my hands with two seconds [left] and I wasn’t going to drive, so maybe he should have just bodied up.
