While I did partake of the sweet nectar at the all-new Biggestaff Brewing Company that just opened on Edgewood Avenue near Inman Park, for the record I did behave myself. But it wasn't easy. Biggerstaff's hoppy beers, sour beers, crisp beers, and malty beers are really nice on a sunny spring day...in moderation of course.
And whereas a lot of brewpubs the food is an afterthought or just something to sop up the suds, Biggerstaff brandishes its big staff with a wonderful menu of comfort food staples. Chef Davis King has a regal resume with stops at Bacchanalia, Seven Lamps and The Optimist—toiling under 3 of the most renowned chefs in the southeast if not the U.S…and it rubbed off. Start with a really nice pickled plate of seasonal vegetables or a plate of their addictive hand-cut fries. Maybe some jerk wings or a nice burrata. All of these are great noshes to go with a cold one. Then try one of their incredible sandwiches like the buttery Cuban or the meatball sub which might be the tastiest, most hearty dish I have eaten in a long time. For mains get into some PEI mussels, a roasted chicken or beer-braised corn beef. Like I said, these all pair great with libations or are absolutely worthy of consuming with a non-alcoholic beverage. In the mornings Biggerstaff serves as a coffeeshop with espressos, bagels and even Casa Cardoza empanadas.
Perched on Edgewood with a fantastic patio, Biggerstaff has all the hipster, Intown plumage you would hope for in an urban brewpub. But the food is what really makes this somewhere you can't wait to stumble into (or out of).
