BLAKE’S WINTER WONDERLAND REVIEW
Washington Outdoor Dining
Brown Iron Brewhouse Washington (57695 Van Dyke Ave, Washington, MI 48094, 586-697-3300, www.browniron.com)
OUTDOOR HEATED PATIO / IGLOOS. The Brown Iron Brewhouse makes most everything on-site, including their BBQ sauces stored at each table. There are three house BBQ sauces – Honey Garlic, Apple BBQ, and Spitfire BBQ. Spitfire BBQ was outstanding, with Honey Garlic close behind. I was putting this stuff on everything. I was excited to try the Apple BBQ, but found it to resemble an apple pie, which didn’t go well with my salmon or fries.
