Beer & Food Pairing Menu:
BEER + BITE
Piercing Pils | ABV: 6.0, IBU: 35
A Perry-Pils hybrid, Piercing Pils is a Czech Style Pilsner brewed with a white pear tea and pear juice. Both the juice and the tea were added in the kettle during the whirlpool (after the boil) for maximum flavor and aroma contribution.
Popcorn, chickpeas, brewers yeast, Spice Monkey popcorn seasoning & roasted buckwheat
POUR + PAIRING
Namaste | ABV: 4.8, IBU: 20
A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher.
Hearts of romaine, parmesan cheese, housemade Caesar dressing
BEER + BITE
Palo Santo Moron | ABV: 12.0, IBU: 50
Unfiltered, unfettered, unprecedented brown ale aged in handmade wooden brewing vessels. The caramel and vanilla complexity unique to this beer comes from the exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood from which these tanks were crafted. Palo Santo means "holy tree," and its wood has been used in South American winemaking communities.
Chicory Braised Short Rib
Short rib, chicory, burdock, root vegetables, grist
POUR + PAIRING
World Wide Stout | ABV: 15 – 20, IBU: 70
Brewed with a ridiculous amount of barley, World Wide Stout is dark, roasty and complex. This Age-able Ale clocks in at 15-20% ABV and has a depth more in line with a fine port than with a can of cheap, mass-marketed beer.
Bacon & Ice Cream
Masala soaked maple-bacon, French vanilla ice cream, dark chocolate sauce
Must RSVP and make purchase to receive Dogfish Craft Brewery swag.
(While supplies last. Arrive early.)
