We’re pleased to be hosting our friends from Ale Industries* at Salsipuedes on Wednesday, December 2, for a unique beer dinner showcasing some of their lesser-known specialty beers. We’re highlighting fruits and spices for this one, so think of it as your holiday fruitcake. But way more delicious, and with beer.
Owner/brewer Morgan Cox from AI will be on hand, pouring these beers:
Pink Drank sour blonde with raspberries aged in oak barrels (6.0%) paired with grilled puntarelle and shrimp
La Niña Fresa a spontaneously fermented Farmhouse Ale brewed following the same process as Tepache, which is a traditional fermented beverage originating in Mexico City. The naturally occurring brettanomyces and lactobacillus on the skin of the pineapple converts this ale into a wonderful and lightly tart, refreshing beer (4.2%) paired with sturgeon al pastor and fermented potato flatbread
Weisse Edict this strong white ale is dry and spicy with notes of cinnamon; aged 9 months in whiskey barrels (8.0%) paired with Peking quail
Cherry Kush California native tea beer (a gruit — made with no hops) with tart cherry juice (4.4%) paired with churros and house made ice cream
Because we share your fear of commitment, we do beer dinners a little differently than most folks. No reservations needed, no tickets, just come on in. Each pairing is $15, try one or try them all. Or you can buy all 4 pairings for $40.
We’ll see you here!
