How cool is it to be served flights of beer on a skateboard, no less, while you're people-watching on the Venice Boardwalk? Well, welcome to the Venice Ale House! Featuring over 30 craft beers and
some pretty fine California wines, this palce will definitely be calling my name all summer! Cocktails are fresh and light and perfect to sip while pondering life and watching the sunset. Food is all locally grown, organic, and sustainable. So come on
down to =V= (as the locals write it) and enjoy some yummy food and drink! From the All Day Menu we love the Corn on the Cob ala Mexicana ($6). Two small ears of sweet corn are roasted in lemon, cayenne, sea salt, and queso fresco. They are savory and spicy
and a must-order! The Vegan Chop Salad ($ 14) is a beautiful, brightly colorful bowl of carrots, beets, quinoa, roasted red peppers, garbanzos, cucumber, avacado, and sunflower sprouts. Add grilled wild salmon for $7, and there you have a beautiful
meal. Burgers served on artisan sesame buns (skip the bun if you're observing Passover as the burger's great without it!), especially the Grass fed and finished California Beef Burger ($12) is well-seasoned and juicy. The tomato, onion, butter lettuce, and
garlic aioli are pretty tasty too. Add some cheese (bleu, aged raw cheddar, feta, goat-$1) and enjoy it with Rosemary russet potatoes and a market salad greens. So have some fun in the sun and get yourself down to the boardwalk! Venice Ale House 2 Rose
