Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery a fine fusion between chain sports bar and craft brewery

Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery is a chain, but all the beer’s brewed on-site, with many a fine brew to be had, many in mugs up to 25 ounces. They offer a rotating green chile beer — a green chile brown ale ($6.25/pint) when we visit — and it’s a friendly brew, malty up front with good chile flavor and a pleasant burn. It’s also one of few Springs spots serving cask ales; we try the cask ale du jour, a version of their Lost Mitten IPA ($6.25/pint) dry hopped with Meridian melon hops. It’s creamy with an earthy bitterness, fresh and delicious. For food, a Baja chicken sandwich ($10.79) does surprisingly well, grilled chicken nicely spiced under creamy avocado and good lime brightness. While we dig the 2:00 A.M. ($11.79) burger and its hash browns and bacon, its sunny-side-up egg comes partially raw — no good. Sandwiches and burgers can all come with bottomless “Santa Fe” fries, which taste like taco seasoning (not a bad thing), a definite plus for this conglomeration of chain sports bar and craft brewery.
