To celebrate my youngest sister's 21st birthday the family went to The Bohemian Brewery. I'd never been here before as it was a new addition since my actually living in Utah. Melinda thought it would be a good place to go because she'd heard the food was good, and it's a brewer.
The family piled into the car while it was snowing like crazy outside and headed down to South Jordan from Ogden. We had planned on being karaoke super stars after dinner but the snow changed our plans, but don't worry we did plenty of other fun things for Melinda's birthday. But back to the food....
Melinda, Rachel and I all ordered different beers so Melinda could get a taste of the different varieties the Brewery made. We decided that while we all don't typically like the stouts, the Brewery's stout was their best, the other two were kinda watery and similar to something you'd find at a frat party.
We had a pear, brie, walnut salad with a lemon vinaigrette as part of our appetizers. I wish there had been more brie or that it had been chopped up into smaller bites, rather than the wedges because there might as well have not been any cheese on that salad. The walnuts and pears were pretty good though, and the lemon dressing wasn't overpowering but a nice addition.
We also ordered some potato pancakes, which I know have their own special German name but I can't for the life of me remember what that name is. I do remember that those potato pancakes were really good. The pancakes came with a sour cream sauce and a spicy mustard sauce. I liked the sour cream sauce more but both were really good.

Now, for my entree. My father had told me to order the pork chop, but I of course didn't listen to him and instead thought I should try the brawtworst with perogies and sauerkraut. The perogies were phenomenal, I loved every bite but the sauerkraut was sweet, and the brawt was just kind of bland. I suppose that the sauerkraut was good, but because I had expected traditional sour/tangy sauerkraut I ended up being disappointed. I did have a taste of my Dad's pork chop and it was delicious. I'll know better next time.
The service here was pretty good, although they did seat us in a main traffic area, which was weird because they had other tables that were open that were less in the way. We were constantly scooting in to avoid the waiters. Our waitress was really attentive though, and our food came out fast.
The prices seemed a little high, but not unreasonable. This isn't an everyday place to go, but it's a fun now and again food place. The building actually looks like a giant cask and that's pretty neat. I would definitely go back for just the pancakes and perogies.
