Funkwerks Beer Dinner at Home Made Liquids & Solids

Funkwerks Beer Dinner Menu

Reception
Solids:
Saison Lacquered Beet Cured Lox
Haystack Goat Cheese
Pickled Local Veggies:
Curry Carrots, Dilly Beans, Bread and Butter Cukes

Liquid: Saison (6.8% ABV) This tawny orange-hued beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine and black pepper hit the nose. Flavors are a cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger and pepper. It finishes with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip.


Course 1
Solids:
Crispy Smoked Duck Breast
Butternut Squash Bisque
Toasted Pepitas
Sage Brown Butter

Liquid: Bastogne (6.5% ABV) Based on a classic Belgian beer, Bastogne is a highly hopped amber beer finished with Brettanomyces. This beer showcases Opal hops with an aroma that is earthy and spicy. The hop presence continues into the flavor with a bit of grassines supported by a biscuity and slightly sweet caramel malt flavor. A lingering bitterness and dry finish yields a very drinkable beer. Brett character will continue to evolve over time as this beer matures.


Course 2
Solids:
Grilled Buffalo Steak
Blackberry Salsa
Pumpkin Spaetzle
Sautéed Baby Bok Choi

Liquid: Cherry Saison (9.2% ABV) Our yearly celebration of one of our favorite fruits! For this year’s batch we used 650 lbs of fresh tart cherries and cocoa nibs. The tart cherries are very present in the aroma with spice notes and just a hint of bready malt. The flavor follows similarly with chocolaty malt character and a touch of warmth in the finish.


Course 3
Solids:
Yorkshire Pudding
Local Apple Compote
Maple Crème Fraiche

Liquid: Deceit (9.4% ABV) This light hued beer was inspired by Belgian Tripels and Golden Strong ales. A high percentage of Pilsner malt and a new yeast strain we used present a sweet lemon character in the aroma. This citrus quality carries into the flavor and finishes with a slight tartness. This beer is well balanced and smooth, making it easy to drink and slightly deceptive because of its high ABV.
