Wunder Brewing Co. – 1st impression

Wunder beerIts been 3 months since Eldo’s closed and finally a new micro-brewery has opened in the same space. Wunder Brewing Company opened on July 5, 2007. The Wunder Brewing Company originally started in 1898 and disappeared for the most part after the 1906 earthquake.

On only the second day of business, Wunder is heading in the right direction. The burger (beef, chicken, or veggie) is reasonably priced ($8.95) and includes a choice of cheeses, grilled onions, bacon, and steak fries. The only beer available as of Friday night was a yet-to-be-named pale ale. It had a nice flavor, reminiscent of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale with a slightly less intense finish.

The menu features “pub grub” with most dishes incorporating beer in the recipes; the prices are moderate. We are still waiting/hoping to see what kind of happy hour specials they will offer and looking for a larger variety of fresh beers.

In the end, I’m just happy to have a micro-brewery back in the neighborhood.
