Salina – Blue Skye Brewery
Prior to a round of meetings in Salina, Kan., I needed to find a place for lunch. Salina has most of the fast food restaurants you would expect it to have and also an above average barbecue joint (Hickory Hut). On this trip, I wanted to try something different. A quick check of the internet led me to Blue Skye Brewery and Eats.
Blue Skye Brewery and Eats is a small microbrewery located at 116 N. Santa Fe, in downtown Salina. They feature a small handful of craft beers and a wood fire pizza oven (both of which deserve your consideration).
For the pork lover, you can create your own pizza, complete with sausage, bacon, pepperoni etc. During happy hour, from three to five p.m., you can order up a plate of pulled pork sliders.
For me, I chose the pulled pork sandwich. The pulled pork is what you would expect, but the sauce is the real story here.
Rather than a traditional sweet Kansas City style sauce, the homemade sauce has a heavy whiskey infused, pasta sauce flavor. It created a sweet, yet unusual combination with the pulled pork that I certainly did not expect. If you are a whiskey lover, try the pulled pork sandwich. If you’re not, it’s hard to go wrong with a wood fired pizza. Whatever your pork pleasure, you should check out Blue Skye Brewery and Eats.
Until next time.
