Grand Rounds Brewing’s New Pizza Fries Are Basically Pizza Poutine
I have a very important question for you: What’s your go-to food when drinking beer? Something greasy, right? As a man who considers Drinking Beer While Eating Food a sport, I can tell you that you have a lot of tasty options; especially when walking downtown Rochester on Broadway. But there’s one place I recently checked out that offers one thing I had never had before. And again, I’m very experienced in Drinking Beer While Eating Food. I redshirted as a freshman!
Since Grand Rounds Brewing is a great place to grab a tasty, local beer after work, that’s exactly what I did last Friday. I started with the Hans Grubier, which I totally ordered based on the name alone. Yippee ki-yay.
It’s okay, but was a little too fruity for me at the moment. I needed a real beer. And I was hungry. One glimpse at their (new!) menu and I knew what I had to order: Hop Bollocks and Pizza Fries. Because when you’re already one beer deep, “Pizza Fries” are happening 9 times out of 10.
So what are Pizza Fries, you’re probably wondering right now? Good question! Basically, you’re taking everything on a pepperoni pizza, minus the crust, and putting it onto a plate of hot fries.
Yes, that’s right. This is totally Pizza Poutine. That's the good stuff.
Anyway, Pizza Fries are pretty great beer food. You should try them. Hop Bollocks is a solid IPA, too. The best part is that a plate of Pizza Fries is big enough to take home, and let me tell you, it’s a great feeling to open up the fridge later in the night to discover Bonus Pizza Fries. I almost cried.
