The windows above One Barrel Brewing, 2001 Atwood Ave., shine bright red with the words BBQ and BEER. Directional arrows light the way. Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 4-8pm, the brewery offers patrons a boutique barbecue menu to go with their craft beer.
For $18, patrons get a platter with a choice of meat, two sides and two sauces. Meats include pulled pork, brisket, baby back ribs, chicken wings, burnt ends (aka meat candy) and a vegan sausage. Burnt ends are pieces of brisket, braised in root beer and black garlic molasses with a crusted outside and tender meat inside.
The list of sides provides several options including, barbecue staples potato salad and baked beans, to mac and cheese, smoked cauliflower and smoked Brussels sprouts. A la carte meat dishes are $10, and sides are $4 each. Pulled pork sandwiches and soft pretzels are a recent addition to the menu.
Owner Peter Gentry had considered selling when COVID-19 hit businesses hard. He then met a chef with years of experience and a passion for barbecue, so he decided to revamp and add something new, creating a new place to eat on Atwood Avenue. All the food is prepared by Steve Doty, manager and chef. The food is cooked in a trailer behind the brewery. Doty has a culinary degree, but his passion has always been barbecue. This passion has resulted in a neighborhood dining experience well worth trying.
