Beer Dinner with Fieldwork Brewing at Salsipuedes, Sunday January 3

We’ve decided to provide the best “soft landing” we could imagine to your New Year’s weekend — a beer dinner at Salsipuedes with our friends from Fieldwork Brewing, a new brewery in Berkeley who are killing it.

We’re going to have special Sunday hours for this, starting at 4pm and going until 9pm. No reservations necessary, just walk on in. In addition to the beer dinner selections, we’ll have some favorites from our regular menu available, too, plus a full roster of wine and cider.

Here’s the beer pairings for the night. Each pairing is $16, or you can buy all four for $49.

Watershed XPA: A bone-dry Extra Pale Ale with a massive tropical nose due to double-IPA levels of dry-hopping. Pairing: Smoked mackerel, citrus, chili.

Ancient Mariner: a Gose style of beer from Germany, highlighting both traditional flavors and ingredients from Baja California, including lime, maize and salt. Pairing: Masa fried cod, pickled vegetables, guajillo cream.

Black Thai: Porter beer with the rich character of Thai Tea, the bold profile of Espresso, and a chewy boba-inspired mouthfeel. Pairing: Porchetta with yuzu and red miso, bergamot abalone rice.

Amarilloweisse: tart Berliner weisse saison with Amarillo hops. Pairing: Hibiscus meringues with amarillo hop cream.

See you at Salsipuedes on the 3rd!
