On Thursday January 21, 2016 at 6:30pm, Bay St Biergarten will host a delicious all-inclusive four course dinner created by executive chef Vaughn Collins featuring Charleston’s own Coast Brewing Co.
The menu for the dinner is as follows:
- Shrimp Bisque paired with Shreddin Wheat- an American wheat ale which consist of vienna malt, wheat malt, American hops and American ale yeast.
- Why it works with bisque: the vienna malt lends a slight toastiness, the wheat gives the beer a higher protein content which allows for a fuller mouth feel, and the moderate hop content will cut through the creaminess of the bisque
- Arugula and crab salad with asparagus and tear drop tomatoes paired with 32/50 Kolsch- a traditional German ale which consist mainly of pilsner malt, a little bit of wheat, Kolsch yeast and a mix of German and American hops.
- Why it works with this type of salad: The Kolsch yeast which calls for a cooler fermentation temperature, along with the use of pilsner malt allows the beer to be light bodied and crispy clean which does not over power the subtle flavors of the crab. The earthy character of the hops work very well with the arugula and asparagus, and the slight acidity of the beer matches the acidity of the tomatoes.
- Bourbon marinated filet with goat cheese risotto paired with Alterior Motive- a traditional German ale which consist of Pilsner malt, munich malt, a mix of German and American hops, and Kolsch yeast.
- Why it works with beef and risotto: The munich malt provides a nice caramelized malty backbone which works with the caramelized beef. The hop character cuts through the rich fat of the beef and the creaminess of the the goat cheese risotto.
- German Chocolate Cake paired with Blackbeerd- a Russian Imperial Stout which consist mainly of 2 row malt, munich malt, caramel and roasted malts, smoked malt, oats, American hops and American ale yeast.
- Why it works with this dessert: The full dark body and slight sweetness work well with the richness of the chocolate. The oats provide a nice silky mouth feel and the hops help to balance out the sweetness of the dish.
