UPDATE // Mon, Jan 23
The JakeWalk, part of a foodtastic triumvirate including cheese and artisanal provisions outlet Stinky Brooklyn and wine/liquor outpost Smith & Vine, rolled out a scrumptious 3-course beer dinner earlier this evening including a delightfully odorous cheese finale, all paired with some of Brooklyn’s most illusive imbibables, and each introduced in detail by Brewmaster Oliver:
You’ll find that all the doors are locked, and the windows are barred. There was no escaping the bottle-conditioned, vintage, barrel-aged and funky-yeast beers to come.
Bottle-conditioned Radius, at a highly sessionable 4.8%, stretches its legs.
Arguably the best course of the night, the chicken liver crostini drenched in kabocha squash soup and paired with the original batch of Local 1 was the edible equivalent of running the game-opening kickoff to a touchdown (sorry, football on the brain).
This trio of goat cheese ravioli displayed a mild hint of wasabi, the perfect accompaniment to Sorachi Ace.
And last, but certainly in no way least, we reveled in the raucous, funky, downright stinky flavors of Grayson, paired up with “Wild 1″ — an adaptation of Local 1 aged in the same barrels from which a certain classified imperial stout develops its riotously delicious character, and then refermented with wild yeast.
Join Brewmaster Oliver at The JakeWalk in Carroll Gardens for a three-course beer dinner.
