Blackwater Draw

Good news!  College Station now has a brewpub!  Alright, so it's only good news to those of us who have been wanting even more good, locally produced beer.  

Those are some distinctive tap pulls.
2 sizes of growlers for those who wish to take the beer with them.

Blackwater Draw is located at the corner of Boyett and Church Street in College Station, right behind Northgate, or about a block from O'Bannon's.   They have daily specials listed on their facebook page and recently have been having events, including a Northgate pub crawl that will occur tomorrow.

Beer Cheese Soup. Delicious, but found out the hard way it contains garlic.
The beer menu is a mix of their in-house brewed beers and Texas craft beer.  They also have a selection of wines and soft drinks for non-beer drinkers. The food menu features a selection of sliders as well as high quality burgers.  I've visited a few times and so far my favorites are the Contract Killer Coffee Porter, which has a wonderful coffee flavor, and the short rib sliders.  Several friends swear the burgers are in competition for the best in the region.  Given the competition in the area, that's high praise.
Mmmmm...sliders. These were very messy, but totally worth it.
The nachos are a popular menu item. I found them to be alright.  The short rib sliders were, in my opinion, far better.
The Grown Up Grilled Cheese was alright, but not up to the standards of those I make at home. I suggest having the burgers or sliders instead.
The Lovely Spouse loves their parmesan truffle fries. Truffle oil smells and tastes bad to me so he's welcome to them.
The price are very reasonable and dinner for 2 can easily come in around $20, including beer.  We'll definitely be back.
