If pairing the right meal with the right tipple is an art form — and it is — then matching several courses with the perfect drinks is the foodie equivalent of an exhibition. Chefs whip up tasty dishes, sommeliers or brewers pick beverages to match, and the lucky folks sitting down for an indulgent feast get the best of both worlds.
Serving up a beer-and-dinner combo, that's what Bitter Suite and Stockade Brew Co's beer degustation event has to offer: three courses of delicious eats, four yeasty pints to go with them and a mighty fine evening. Sure, every multi-plate sitting these days calls itself a degustation, but this one truly does want you to savour the flavours on offer — whether you're munching or sipping.
Taking place from 6.30pm on October 11, tickets cost $59 per person for something much better than your average weeknight meal. The New Farm kitchen will be cooking up charred lime duck breast and violet gnocchi, barbecue lamb rump and a smokey cheeseboard, while Stockade's selections include lager, IPA and their Roly Smoked Jalapeno Porter.
