BREWPUB & BEER GARDEN Tired of dark, dank, masculine mancave brewpubs with boring bar food? Rose’s Taproom is the polar opposite, bright, cheery, and delicate yet completely substantive. It’s a “grain-to-glass taproom” where husband-wife-team Luke Janson and Hillary Rose Huffard have elevated small-barrel homebrewed beer and cider and well-paired salty/sour/fishy snacks to new heights in a homespun yet urbane almost tearoomlike atmosphere. Beers and foods change often, with the seasons and Janson and Huffard’s whims as well as the moods of their food collaborators. Kolsch, Saison, Schwarzbier, and Toasted Coconut Porter were among early opening surprises. Pizzaiola and Duende play supporting roles with bread and charcuterie, such as pork rillettes and pimentón, prosciutto, eggplant and tomato conserva, sobresada and prosciutto, bread and grainy mustard when Rose’s opened in July. Sardines, anchovies, mussels, olives, and Marcona almonds were in play this summer, too. It just may be one of your new favorite Temescal additions, especially when salt, sun, and snacks serenade. Serves during lunch and dinner hours daily. 4
