Deeds at Home Southern Fried Chicken
The team is serving up some very good deeds, offering takeaway Southern fried chicken and beer throughout lockdown.
For years, its beery creations have appeared at leading bottle shops, graced the Good Beer Week lineup and sat among the winners of the GABS Hottest 100 Aussie Craft Beers list. But when Glen Iris' Deeds Brewing opened a taproom and tasting bar for dine-in customers in late June this year, it had to close its doors shortly after due to COVID restrictions.
The brewery-restaurant hybrid has now tabled its sophisticated dine-in offering and pivoted to a very special lockdown treat — Deeds at Home, featuring juicy pieces of southern fried chicken.
Inspired by head chef Paul Kasten's travels through Kentucky, the team are doing some very good deeds for Melbournians with fried chicken available in two, five or ten-piece portions. If you're after a bit of a kick, there are two different spicy additions to add on — Sichuan hot or Nashville hot. There's also a Nashville hot chicken sandwich, which comes complete with slaw, mayo and pickles on a soft milk bun.
You can pair your chicken dinner with a four-pack of Deeds' award-winning beer and some classic southern sides, including mash with spring onion and gravy, baked aged cheddar mac 'n' cheese, buttermilk biscuits, or an iceberg wedge with herbs and vinaigrette if you're after something fresh to cleanse the palate.
