Had lunch today with the boys at a unique spot, The MOUNT ARROWSMITH BREWING COMPANY. It’s located at 425 Stanford Ave E in Parksville. And it’s pretty darn good.
We all went with a Flight of Beer, 4 different varieties and you choose your medicine. I opted for the Arrowsmith Blonde, the Salish Sea, the Comfortable Chum and the IPA. All were good with distinctive interesting flavours. This is a real craft brewery and they know their beer. The Arrowsmith Blonde Ale is an award winner.
The lunch and snack menu is limited but includes Wings, Tacos, Flatbreads and a cheese tray. I took a run at the Tacos. Two for $13.50. Coconut Prawns in one, Crispy Chicken in the other. Fresh & delicious. I really enjoyed them both. They are served with some wonderful in house made corn chips with salsa on the side. A couple of the guys had the wings which they enjoyed. We will all go back.
It a funky kind of joint with darn good food. They have a patio, too, with picnic tables and umbrellas which would be enjoyable on a warm summer day. And there is good parking right in front. Open for lunch until 7:30 most days.
