Brewsters West 7th, a new burger and beer restaurant in the W. 7th district, opens Monday at 6:00 p.m.
Its location, at 2837 Crockett Street (just a few feet down from AF+B), will pit it head to head against two of Fort Worth’s best burger joints – Rodeo Goat and Fred’s Texas Cafe. Owner Steve Brown, who also runs Esparza’s Mexican restaurant in Grapevine, said he’s going for a more sports-bar-oriented crowd, pointing out that the 3,000 square foot restaurant has 11 flat-screen TVs.
In step with the current craft beer craze, Brewsters will offer 45 beers on tap, with a mix of local and national crafts, along with bottles and cans, and a full bar. The restaurant will also have Abita’s Root Beer (from New Orleans) on tap.
When I dropped by Saturday, the menu was still being finalized. As of now, it features basic burgers with bacon and cheese to burgers with zany names and unusual toppings like jalapeño jam, candied bacon and peanut butter. The Humpty Dumpty burger will have a patty infused with sausage and maple syrup.
Patties will be hand formed daily and cooked on a state-of-the-art electric grill, similar to this one.
