Relentless Brewing Brings Sour Beers, Pub Grub and Eagle Rock's First Distillery

Relentless Brewing as a brewery has been open in Temecula for a few years now, and they're known for their sour beers. Now, they've opened a pub in Eagle Rock and completed it with a distillery. The spirits are still in the works (with vodka coming out earliest, of course), but in the meantime the locals are already coming for the beers and casual food.

Relentless Brewing in Eagle Rock offers more than just their own beers, they carry a pretty extensive lineup from other craft breweries from California. I ended up trying their own Farm of the Rising Sun, a farmhouse ale.

The kitchen serves up pub grub, from appetizers to salads and burgers / sandwiches.
We started with (a large portion of) Smokey Poutine (french fries topped with a smokey bacon beef and beer gravy, white cheddar cheese curds, crispy bacon, pickled jalapenos and chives - $10)

I liked the fries here, the seasoning and texture reminds me of curly fries.

Ride or Die house salad (mixed greens, wild arugula, citrus vinaigrette, candied pecans, heirloom tomatoes, basil, figs - $10.95)

Glad we got some salad to balance out the rich poutine. I actually quite enjoyed the dressing on the salad.

Relentless Burger (Angus beef patty, french onion aioli, wild arugula, crispy pork belly, beer cheese, pickled red onions - $17.95).

The bar here also serves cocktails at $12 each. In the future they will have cocktails with their own spirits. I had to try the cocktails that incorporate beer or hops, of course, since I was at a brewery:
Hopper Plane (Four Roses bourbon, Aperol, Amaro Nonino, lemon, slash of Okily Dokily, Relentless Brewing's sour Flanders red ale)
Hoperol Spritz (Mosaic hop infused Aperol, IPA, topped with prosecco)

Even though Relentless was pretty new when I visited, they seem to have gotten their stride with the locals. People were coming in to enjoy the night breeze (it was still warm out when I went, ok, I'm behind at blogging) and the sour beer lovers came in to enjoy the beers.
