On a warm summer evening, few things beat a cold beer and the sizzling sound of meat on a grill.
But what if you could swap that watery lager and sorry-looking frozen burger for top-shelf brews and meat cuts?
A beer and meat pairing event set to take place next week promises to match six different grilled dishes to six craft beers brewed at two of Brussels’ foremost artisan brewers.
The September 15 event at Sciacca Grill in St Julian’s will see chef Jonathan Brincat pair delicacies such as local goat’s cheese royal, pickled beetroot and honey and citrus dressing local prawns with a chimicurri sauce and a veal carpaccio complete with egg yolk confit and truffle dressing with a series of Belgian wheat beers, camomile-infused ales, session IPAs and stout beers.
All beers are brewed by Brasserie de la Senne and Brussels Beer Project and imported by Brewhaus Malta.
Brewhaus staff will be on hand to walk guests through the menu and explain the contrasting tastes and textures of each of the six courses. Each dish has been paired with specifically selected craft beers.
An evening of fine food and beer costs €55 per person, with each guest taking home a custom-made souvenir and a full bottle of the craft beer they liked the most on the night.
Bookings can be made by emailing [email protected]. Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
