Railroad Street Bar & Grill (Limerick) - Tasty Food and Beer.

The Railroad Street Bar & Grill is located a few miles off the Limerick/Linfield exit on 422. It's a neighborhood bar that is nestled up against railroad tracks and offers some great craft beer and tasty bar food. Owner Mike McCloskey has a passion for craft beer and great food. He has recently added more taps to his bar, most of which are craft brews. Railroad Street Bar & Grill now has 38 taps and soon a handpump. The taps now offer a large variety of all styles of beers. Mike gets some rare and limited beers too. Two glass coolers offer around 200 bottles as well.

Pictured above is the buffalo chicken grilled cheese. The sandwich is served with a bag of Good's potato chips (my favorite) and a pickle. This grilled cheese has meat of buffalo chicken wings inside the sandwich. It's like eating a grilled cheese and hot wings at the same time. Yum. Railroad offers a great menu with tasty appetizers and lots of cold and hot sandwiches (a whole page of specialty grilled cheese!). Be sure to check out some of their daily specials as well, such as: $2 cheesesteaks and $1 tacos, to name a few.

The Railroad Street Bar & Grill is quickly becoming a favorite destination for craft beer lovers. So next time you're in the Limerick area, make sure you stop at Railroad for some great beers, food and friendly service. Check out their up to date draft list on Beermenus.com

This visit, I enjoyed a Ballast Point Sculpin on tap:

look: 4.5
smell: 5
taste: 5
feel: 4.5
overall: 4.8

Appears a very clear golden/orange color with a nice bright white head. Tight, tiny bubbles with a very nice lacing sticking to the glass.

Smell is of fresh tropical fruits. I get aromas of ripe mango, peach and orange. Bright, fresh fruity and citrus hops, with a light sweet malt background. Smells awesome.

Taste is wonderful. Big bright citrus notes. The tastes follows the nose on this one. A nice clean dry finish. Well balanced.

Mouthfeel is great. Super fresh bitter bright hops upfront with smooth dry finish. Nice carbonation. This is a world class IPA.
