Fine-dining veteran Bruce Wieszala turns his talents to a brewery menu, leaving pretzels and sliders to pale beside the glory of housemade sausage and bacon, mac and cheese topped with duck-fat-crisped crumbs, and death-defying burgers.

I’m not particularly a beer drinker — okay, I just don’t drink beer. But, I did enjoy the atmospheres at the local eateries. My favorite was Thin Man Brewery on Elmwood Avenue. They have a small front patio on the sidewalk, a comfortable indoor area, and a fabulous rooftop patio that is the place to hang out in the good weather months. I was told by my dinner companion, a regular at the brewery, that the beer there is excellent. He recommended the Hair of the Dog Flanders Fred with what he called a bit of “funk”. In beer terms, I gather that’s a very good thing. Me, I stuck with a glass of wine, but the food was what would have me coming back here time and again.
