The Sierra Grille is my new favorite restaurant.

As a connoisseur of craft beers, I find that going to a new restaurant can often be a bit of a crapshoot. I like to enjoy a beer or two with my meal, and many restaurants stock only bland macro-brews. I generally consider myself lucky to find just *one* beer that I like on tap at a given restaurant. Just sitting down at my table and seeing the beer list was awesome, knowing how much the owner of the Sierra Grille must care about beer to assemble a lineup like that. 18 beers on tap, all of them quality craft beers.

The list leans heavily towards Belgian or Belgian-style beers, with approximately half of the list being comprised of these. (Bonbon's review has most of the beers that were there during my visit). I started my dinner off with a Chimay Tripel. I followed this up with a Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, which went quite well the Thai sauce on my duck. Unfortunately, I did not have time for a third drink.

Food: Very good. Put it this way: Three members of my party weren't BAs (and one even had wine instead of beer) and they all came away very impressed with the restaurant.

The menu is very creative. I would recommend checking out the restaurant's website to get a better sense of this. The Belgian fries deserve mentioning. I chose the fries with duck gravy as one of my sides (each meal comes with two). Delicious.

Other: Service was good, atmosphere was fine, prices were reasonable given the high quality. Entrees run $15-20. Beers are very reasonable as well, at around $4-6 a pint.

Bottom line: The Sierra Grille is definitely worth a trip for the food alone. But if you love beer (and I'm guessing you do, seeing as you're reading this review on beeradvocate.com), I cannot think of a better place to get a meal.
