HOUSTON, Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Brick House Tavern + Tap takes fall's
favorite activity – football watching – to a whole new level at its 16
fan-friendly locations across the U.S. The elevated sports tavern will be
better than home on game day, and any time during the week, with new
sandwiches, daily specials, appetizers and specialty cocktails designed to
complement the season.

New additions to the menu celebrate the season featuring elevated all-American
classics with a tasty twist. Hearty sandwiches, perfect for fall days, include
the Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich, featuring chicken marinated in spicy
buttermilk and then fried, dressed with bacon ranch and served on a brioche
bun; the Drunken Pork Meatball Hero using Brick House scratch-made pork
meatballs, dressed in a whiskey BBQ sauce; and a unique new take on a Sunday
afternoon favorite, the Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup. Rather than traditional
cheddar, the sandwich is made with a combination of smoked cheddar, shaved
brie and mozzarella and is topped with crispy prosciutto, grilled red onions
and arugula. It is served with rich, house-made tomato bisque – a big step up
from the red-and-white can mom used to open.

"We designed our game-day offerings to be just like home – only better – with
a chef-designed menu, scratch kitchen, attentive wait staff, craft beers and
signature cocktails," said Brick House Tavern + Tap Senior Director James
Blystone. "We do all the work so our guests can focus on food, friends and

Brick House's Snacks menu has also been updated to include the Tap Sandwich
with salami, roasted bell pepper and creole mustard on a soft pretzel bun and
Shock Top Mussels, served traditional style but steamed in Shock Top Hard
Cider. Great for the whole gang are Brick House's new crispy, hot Duck Wings,
served with a bold dipping sauce with Sriracha for heat.

Guests can enjoy the new fall items or old favorites such as Brick House's
handmade, how-you-like-'em burgers, handcrafted meatballs and wide range of
appetizers and entrees, along with free Wi-Fi, 30+ big screen HDTVs, comfy
recliners and private party spaces.

And, because no game day is complete without a cold drink, Brick House has
plenty of options for crisp fall days, including new specialty cocktails such
as the Buffalo Snap and Bourbon Spiced Apple, both with hints of cinnamon and
made with top-shelf bourbon, plus more than 80 domestic, imported and local
craft beers on tap.
