High-Hand Brewing Co.

3750 Taylor Road, Loomis, 916-660-0117,

If atmosphere is equally important to you as service and quality of food and drinks, then there’s a place in Loomis you need to check out. High-Hand Brewing Co.—located inside the historic High-Hand Fruit Shed along Taylor Road, next to the beloved nursery and café—boasts a rustic, incredibly stylish setting that’s perfect for enjoying any of their impeccably brewed craft beers (everything from a Tangerine Kölsch and Blood Orange Gose to a Vanilla Porter), plus craft cocktails (I recommend the French Squeezed) and wine! As for food, there are ample options, from small bites to entrées. My friend and I split three plates, so we could savor all sorts of flavors. First up, the BBQ Pork Sliders—slow roasted pulled pork, BBQ sauce, and coleslaw on top of fresh-baked rolls. In this foodie's opinion, nothing beats homemade bread, so these were clearly a favorite, so these were clearly a favorite! Also homemade were the potato chips that came alongside the sliders. Yum! Next, we “split” the Shrimp Tacos. The garlic marinated shrimp, red cabbage, avocado, and cilantro crema provided each bite with layers of fabulous flavor and textures. Truth be told, I wanted them all for myself, so sharing is not recommended. We also tried the Shrimp Lettuce Wraps served with a peanut dipping sauce that paired perfectly with the shrimp, crunchy vegetables (cucumbers, bell peppers, jicama), and creamy avocado. Pro tips: Ask for extra napkins, and maybe don’t order them if you’re on a first date. Good food? Good drinks? Good vibes? And weekly entertainment? High-Hand Brewing checks all the boxes, and more. I’ll be back!
