Day 55 of 365…

Laurelwood Public House & BreweryAs I’ve traveled around town doing “365 Things” I’ve had several local businesses ask me if I’ve tried Laurelwood Public House & Brewery out in Battle Ground. Until today, I hadn’t… Today I had an opportunity to get out north of Vancouver to the constantly growing Battle Ground, WA area to check it out. Laurelwood Public House did not disappoint. This restaurant is owned by Battle Ground native Mike De Kalb and his wife Cathy Woo-De Kalb. They established Laurelwood Brewing Company in 2001 and opened up this Battle Ground location in 2009.

My friend and I started with an order of six wings (Monday’s are $.50 wing days) with the special of the day sauce. It was a sweet sauce that was very good. The wings were pretty good. Pulled pork sandwich with beer friesFor my meal I had the Shredded BBQ Pork sandwich with cole slaw and a huge order of beer battered fries. My entire meal was great. I enjoyed the sandwich and the fries were awesome! Great flavor and just the right amount of crunch. My friend had the Santa Fe burger and fries which he also loved. I snuck a bite of the guacamole off his burger and it was very good. He also had the Space Stout and he loved it. Our entire lunch cost less than $30 which included the wings and his beer. Not the cheapest in town but certainly on par for a similar meal experience.

Laurelwood is located on the east end of town at 1401 SE Rasmussen Blvd, Battle Ground, WA 98604 and can be reached at 360-723-0937. You can also find them on Facebook here. So, if you find yourself looking for a cool brew pub (that is also kid friendly) why not head out to Battle Ground and check this place out. It’s worth the drive.
