Sausage Stuffed Olives @ Serious Pie on Westlake

Sausage Stuffed Olives @ Serious Pie on Westlake

We were half an hour too early for Oyster Happy Hours at The Flying Fish. So we just decided to have a beer at Serious Pie which was only a block away. It looked like their happy hours had started!

This place seemed to be a pizzeria and gastropub with upscale hipster decor and a lay-back atmosphere. It was not very busy inside although World Cup was on TV. We just ordered some beer. The waiter was friendly, and he suggested we should get a pitcher which was a better deal for 4 of us… The price of a pitcher ($20) exactly equaled to 4 glasses ($5 each). But somehow the pitcher did not fill 4 glasses. The waiter blushed. He took the glass back to the bar and filled it up.

We only ordered a plate of sausage stuffed olives to go with our beer. The olives were pretty tasty – salty olive, slight fatty sausage, and spicy chilli sauce, making it a pretty good warm bar snack for beer time. We had schooner exact gateway golden, which according to the waiter, was supposed to light and lager-like. But it was pretty hoppy. I didn’t mind it but my friends would prefer something lighter and smoother. For the 2nd round, we order a few other beers. Still mostly pretty hoppy except the Duval Belgian Golden Ale, which I had tried many times, and the taste was pretty standard. But the Duval was from a tap and it was still $9 during happy hours. Hmm…

I would like to come back for the ‘Serious Pies’ though, the pizza oven looked pretty awesome and their pizza pies seemed worth visiting.
