Encinitas is a quiet tucked away place where you really feel like you have gotten away. It’s one of our favorite places to visit. There are many places to dine at here, but Union Kitchen & Tap is really unique. You will delight at the cozy interior made of reclaimed wood. Every detail has been carefully styled. I ordered the Union Burger composed of Brandt Beef, Tomato Jam, Bacon, and Cheddar. I must say it was very satisfying.
The waitress was very informative and helped me pick the first beer to try. She would ask what type of beers I liked and could navigate to one of their special taps. I tried the Union Hef which I found to be refreshing and good, but for my second choice I wanted to try something out of my comfort zone. My second choice was Red Rocket from Bear Republic Brewing Co. It was amazing! It really turned me on to Red Ales.
They have about 20 rotating craft beers on tap (primarily from local breweries), many of which are limited-release. While this place may seem a little pricey it is upscale and will not disappoint. If you need to impress someone special take them here!
