MENU

The t ypic al brew­pub model in­volves a food truck out back , but West Palm Beach Brew­ery and Wine Vault takes a more for­mal ap­proach to food ser­vice. The mi­cro­brew­ery op­er­ates a full kitchen that serves pizza, wings, sal­ads, tacos and sand­wiches. Piz­zas cost $12 to $16. The char­cu­terie plate is the most ex­pen­sive item at $20. Beer re­mains the main at­trac­tion — West Palm Beach Brew­ery serves 15 craft brews and has a few beers on tap from other brew­eries — and there’s also wine.

West Palm Beach Brew­ery marks down­town’s en­try into the craft beer craze, and the din­ing and drink­ing ar­eas are a step up from the ware­house-style sur­round­ings at some of Palm Beach County’s mi­cro­brew­eries.

They’ll tell you about that item and why they liked it in this spot each week. the side­walk out­side and many more tables in­side. The kitchen oc­cu­pies one cor­ner of the din­ing room, and you can watch the chefs pre­pare piz­zas and wings in the brick oven.

OUR FA­VORITE FOOD/PRICE

The roasted cau­li­flower ap­pe­tizer ($10) and the wood­fired wings ($12) were both ex­cel­lent and fill­ing. We were less im­pressed by the pizza — the cen­ter of the crust was soggy.

REA­SON TO GO

A wide selec­tion of craft beers and a cool at­mos­phere.

SER­VICE

Friendly and help­ful. When I asked for a pizza priced at $14, a server noted that the happy hour menu in­cluded a sim­i­lar pie for just $9.

NOISE LEVEL

Loud. When we vis­ited on a Fri­day night, the place was packed, and the room seemed to am­plify the noise.

KID FRIENDLY

Not e s p e c i a l l y — i t ’s a mi­cro­brew­ery. How­ever, we did see a few fam­i­lies with kids.
