A Courier-Journal preview of Thursday's cask ale pairing dinner with Garage Bar.

The Garage Bar's Megan Breier previews Thursday's NABC cask ale dinner in the Courier-Journal. I can't recall a time when we've taken two firkins to a local restaurant for a food and beer pairing, so here's to another "first." It also may be the only time you find ConeSmoker and Hoosier Daddy on the same beer menu, at least outside of our own two locations.

Here's the menu for the Garage Bar's Anti-Valentine's Day Cask Beer Dinner with NABC, on Thursday, February 14.

Garage Bar, 700 E. Market St., is serving up two New Albanian Brewing Company Cask Beers paired with pizza and pork belly on Thursday. “Basically it is like an a la carte idea where guests can come in and enjoy the cask beer and have some specials specifically paired with the beers,” says manager Megan Breier.

Cone Smoker, a smoky American Pale Ale, is one of the beers. “We all sat around with the chef (Richard Sible, chef de cuisine) and had the beer and all just thought pork belly would be amazing with this beer,” says Breier. The staff suggests the pork belly special — with citrus sorghum jus and cannellini beans — to pair with the Cone Smoker.
