"The Pint House is an upscale American style Pub & Restaurant without an upscale price." - www.thepinthouse.com
Another house for ales arrives in downtown Fullerton in the form of The Pint House. The sign is easy to locate off Wilshire. It's got a clean, small interior with an "L" shaped bar for about 10 people, about a dozen tables, and an outdoor patio. It didn't "seem" have an upscale vibe, but certainly it was nice. I like to get my drink on relatively early in the night before the crowds invade downtown around 10pm, so I was one of the few customers inside.
The bartender was always there to help whenever I needed something (which turned out to be just a few things, a water cup, a beer, and dinner). The food menu features options could be described as "bar food"; sandwiches, appetizers, and salads. However, the presentation is good; the pulled pork sliders with garlic parmesan fries were a pleasurable option.
20 taps behind the bar; a sprinkle of a couple macros, while the rest are made of the craft variety. Breweries like Lost Coast, Sierra Nevada (including Ovila Saison for my visit), Bootlegger's (naturally!), Delirium Tremens, Stone, Dogfish Head, and Chimay. A handful of options in the bottle, with Lindemans being the highlight. Shaker pint glasses and Chimay branded chalices are utilized, and my Ovila Saison was served fresh and healthy.
Recall the introductory quote. As a place which suggests not having an upscale price, I found the value to be very dissapointing. The pork sliders and garlic parmesan fries were $12, which is a stretch for good value. However, the ring leader was the beer. With no beer menu or listed prices for the beers, I would recommmend asking how much each tap costs, because I got hit with an $11 charge from a 12 ounce pour of Ovila Saison while not expecting such. Sure, downtown Fullerton is a little more expensive than elsewhere, but when you're making Heroe's, Olde Ship, and Commmonwealth Lounge look cheap with their beer pricing, the "without an upscale price" statement holds as much truth as a Barack Obama pledge. That's too bad, because I really thought this could be my new go-to place in downtown.
