At the Garlic Poet in New Cumberland (sister restaurant and bar of Grain + Verse Bottlehouse), they like their beer the way they like their food – well-crafted, local, and a little unconventional in all the best ways. This Saturday, at their June Chef’s Table, they’re doing an excellent job of pairing both.
Executive Chef Kurt Wewer and Intangible Ales head honchos Terry & Kristen will be using their combined powers to present some of the most wildly wonderful brew-and-food combinations we’ve ever seen. How about a basil-mint-lime infused baby octopus paired with Intangible’s farmhouse saison, Future Primitive? Or carbonated pears and the world’s most complex cotton candy paired with fruity-funky Juxtapose? If that sounds intriguing, check out the full menu and reserve your spaces here. The fun runs from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. Seats are $60 – you can reserve them at the link. If we were you… we wouldn’t miss this. How many chances do you get to eat a sandwich-style concoction riffing on the infamous KFC Double-Down, called the GP Double-Down, served on (and we quote) “fried green tomato ‘buns’?”
Both Chef Wewer and the minds behind Intangible Ale, Terry & Kristen, will be at the Chef’s Table to answer all your burning questions. We suggest, inspired by the menu: how do you carbonate a pear? What made you want to brew an ale (Acidulated Hive, to be exact) with brett and finish it off with orange blossom? How many flavors can you even fit into cotton candy? Inquiring minds want to know.
