Moreover, the overarching aim in establishing food and beer pairings for breakfast is to liberate beer from its hackneyed “something ice-cold to drink after work” tradition.
I'm happy to report that Brendan's Public House (3921 Shelbyville Road in St. Matthews) is running with the beer & breakfast concept this coming Saturday, January 16, in the form of a Beer Brunch with some of NABC's beers, and I'm really excited about the possibilities even if we'll be doing it after 12.00 noon.
Gotta walk before you can run, you know.
Beer Brunch at Brendan's starts at 1:00 p.m. and will last until 3:00 p.m. The menu will consist of four courses, with three listed below and one yet to be determined. The menu thus far:
Tomatillo/Hoptimus Huevos Rancheros
Solidarity Baltic Porter Glazed Country Ham with Chipotle cheddar grits
Beaks Best Bread Pudding
Brendan's is limiting reservations at 25, with the cost being $30 for the food, beer, and stimulating conversation with NABC personnel in attendance, including me, otherwise known as The Publican. One or more of NABC's brewers will be there, too, although I can't tell you which ones at this time.
Call 502.895.1212 for reservations.
