If there’s something that we’ve learned about Two Roads, it’s that when Two Roads does something, they always do it big…and they do it right. Case in point: last night’s Sourcopia paired beer dinner from Chef Plum and the Plum Luv Foods crew. There were five courses of food dreamed up by Chef Plum that he paired with new Two Roads beer, including their three new sours that everybody in attendance got first tastes of. There was Kriek, Gueuze, Philsamic, and two other brews including the soon-to-be year round Unorthodox and a delicious Roadsmary’s “Other” Baby.
The pairings were really spot-on and the courses were spaced out nicely…quite a feat considering what Plum, Chef Kern, and the crew were dealing with. They were there, hours before, setting up a make-shift kitchen in the side room where you normally go to get growler fills. Our favorite courses were the sashimi tuna, the Surf and Turf, and of course the pork belly and our favorite brews were Philsamic and Roadsmary’s “Other Baby.” Excellent job, again, Plum and Two Roads.
Now, onto the brews…
Headbrewer Phil Markowski talked in-depth about each beer as they arrived to our tables. He was so passionate about each beer and was so damn eloquent that we didn’t think we could do any better. So, we made sure to capture video of each description of beer. Before we get there, though, we did learn that Two Roads will release (in February) Worker’s Stomp, their Worker’s Comp Saison that is aged in wine barrels. In addition, be on the lookout for some awesome outdoor events at the brewery…yup! And, of course, you’ll want to snatch up Kriek, Gueuze, and Philsamic on 10/25 from 12-9.
Let’s cue up Phil:
