Batch Craft Beer & Kolaches has always been one of our favorite spots for excellent kolaches and great beer, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the food trailer out back, Batch PM, is of the same caliber. The menu here is all about bratwurst and fries - two of our favorite things to pair with a draft beer - with a variety of toppings, dips, and accompaniments. We tried the Cuban bratwurst on a recent visit - it comes topped with roast pork, a pickle spear, Swiss cheese, and mustard - and it’s every bit as tasty as it sounds. The Belgian fries were about as perfect as any we’ve had, only made better with some curry ketchup and garlic aioli. Batch also has a large, spacious patio, making it a great spot on the East Side to grab a beer and some fries while you get a little work done (or at least convince yourself you’re working).
