It's nice to have variety! The beer scene has changed so much in a decade. My husband would totally go for that chili dog!

Variety is good thing though it has taken my mouth a while to adjust to the range of flavors out there.

The first real American craft beer I ever tasted was Grant's Scottish Ale, made in the first modern brewpub in Yakima WA back in the early 80s. A place called Produce Row Cafe in Portland carried it and had a wide range of other taps including Dortmund Ritterbrau and Pilsner Urquell. Maybe 16 taps and over 50 bottled beers. Seemed like a lot back in the day. But now that seems very limited, and the huge selections of Belgian beers, wheat beers, fruit ales etc really boggles my brain and sometimes stretches my palate.


Looks most of the fried food is overly battered.

Ed (from Yuma)

I agree, billy, but I suspect there are a lot of people who prefer the taste of fried batter to the taste of calamari.
I even ran into some way overbattered tempura at a local "sushi bar" out here.




They should have Hotdog Hwednesday.

Ed (from Yuma)

That's good, Doc, but it made me think that Wiener Wednesday might be even better.


What a nice place to have out there! Most of the menu looks really yummy and the beer selection is amazing.


Between this and the new brewery across the street by the same owners I'm really excited to see more craft beer in Yuma.

Unfortunately the two times I've got to Pint house I've run into the same issue I ran into with Burgers and Beer where I had to order 3 or 4 times before picking something off the beer list that they actually had :( One time it was two beers off the daily specials board out front that were both out and they still had them posted as the day's specials when I left.

Thankfully they have enough selection I was able to find alternatives, but it's still disappointing to see a beer you've been wanting to try listed as the day's special only to find out they don't actually have it and double disappointing to have it happen twice in a row on the same day.

The cubano is really tasty! But I also agree they need to step up the game on their fries.
