Mmmm...lager... Gravity keg schedule for IBC and @loreleipgh. The fun starts tonight at the Independent. Prost!
Deep thoughts on dinner planning. @jamilkabm plans her five course pairing menu for our October 1 beer dinner with @dancinggnome (it’s their 2 year anniversary!). Have your ticket yet? Tickets available for both seatings. Link in bio.
Drew and Pete quietly tap @3fonteinen keg during Oktoberfest and hope that no one notices while they finish it themselves...(“Beersel Zwet. be” is a porter fermented exclusively with 3 Fonteinen strains of yeast. It starts like a perfect English porter with big malty tones and a creamy mouthfeel and ends like a Lambic with tart, rustic notes that balance the ample malt offerings. Again, it’s Oktoberfest, so, yeah ... nothing to see here)
Sure as schnitzel.
We’re very excited to announce that we’re going to celebrate Dancing Gnome’s second anniversary with a very special beer dinner. The dinner will feature five courses from Independent’s Executive Chef Jamilka Borges along with five beer pairings from Dancing Gnome. Tickets will go on sale on the Independent’s Merch page (link in bio) tomorrow Tuesday at noon. - -
Chef Jamilka Borges was recognized by the James Beard Foundation in 2015 as a Rising Star Semifinalist and was honored as Best Chefs America's Rising Star Chef. In 2016 was named Starchefs Rising Star for the Rustbelt Region. In 2018 she was named Pittsburgh Magazine Chef of the Year, in recognition of her commitment with her community, culinary skills and voluntarism. - -
Dancing Gnome, located in Sharpsburg, just outside of Pittsburgh, opened its doors in 2016. It unapologetically brews soft, hop-forward beers with as deft a touch as any other brewery in the industry, bringing out subtle and nuanced aromas and flavors from each hop they use. The dinner will feature five diverse Dancing Gnome beers, ranging from double IPAs to fruited sours, with two pale ales and a stout in between. Brewers will be on hand during the dinner to introduce the beers with each course.
We look forward to bringing Chef Borges together with these beers and brewers, a combination that is sure to make for a fun and delicious evening. - -
We hope you join us for this limited ticketed event.
Tickets: $85 (includes gratuity)
Seatings: 5:30 pm & 8:30 pm
