Brew -Ligion is a new Pub & Grill that opened up in Murrieta. They boast a great selection of craft beers and I have been hankering to visit them since they opened! For our September, Temecula Beer Runners event ( www.facebook.com/temeculabeerrunners ) we decided to go to Brew-Ligion! I also decided to do a review of this eatery for our readers here. We did not get paid or compensated in any way for this review.
The Pub is easy to find, located on Avenida Acacias ( the furniture strip mall off Los Alamos & I-215). When we entered, we were greeted by friendly staff members. The bar was spacious and had a great “buzz” going, even though it was only 6pm in the evening. We introduced ourselves as the Temecula Beer Runners and the staff were willing to accommodate our group after our run. We ran for 2.5 miles and were definitely ready for Beer O’Clock when we got back. As promised tables were ready for us outside. However, that may have been the highlight of the service for the night! There were 12 runners and we got 2 beer menus between us! It took about 20 minutes for our beer order to be taken and another 25 minutes before we got our beer! That is a long 45 minutes !!! In fact some people in our group got food before they got their beer!
The beer menu was fantastic though! I love craft beers and there was a wide selection to choose from. Only a couple were not available and staff were able to make good recommendations for similar beers. I choose a sampler, which came with 4 3 oz beers. A great way to taste new beers! Everyone in our group enjoyed their beer selection.
I did not order any food. I looked at the food menu, but to be honest, nothing appealed to me. If you are looking for your usual pub fair, this is your kind of menu. If you are looking for anything original, you will be disappointed.
Overall, I was disappointed in my experience, but I am willing to give it another try. Maybe our waitress was having a particularly arduous evening, maybe my food snob gene was out in full force that evening or maybe Brew-Ligion really does fall short. I will report back after my second visit. In the meantime, if you want to check them out and give us your impressions, you can pop over to 39809 Avenida Acacias, Murrieta, CA 92563.
