Welcome Phillip Baio!

IMG_4379

We’re so excited to have Phillip Baio join our meat department. You might remember Phillip from V. Richards, where he worked as a butcher for the past three years.

He brings a ton of fantastic experience to our team, and we’re honored to have him.

He and Thyme and Bobby already have so many cool ideas for the butcher department and the restaurant that we can’t wait to implement!

Phillip also asked me to share these tips:

  • Our pork is Southeast Family Farms Berkshire pork, the absolute top quality and flavor in local heritage pigs.
  • We can special order nearly any meat, so don’t hesitate to ask.
  • All our fresh sausages are nitrate-free.
  • We’re happy to offer cooking instructions for our meats.

He chose the contents for next week’s butcher box, including our sausage, bacon, and house burger grind, plus Berkshire pork chops, filet mignon, and short ribs.

Reinheitsgeborg: Beer Goggles this week

Hey folks! This week we take a barley journey into the heart of modern beer: Germany! A country which has affected the development of beer like few others, Germany knows how the magic of barley, hops, and water (and yeast!) come together to form a powerful array of deliciousness. This was etched into history by way of the Reinheitsgebot: the German Beer Purity Law.
This week we’re tasting:
Weihenstephaner Kristall Weissbier
Professor Briem 1809 Berliner-Weisse
Konig Pilsner
Left Hand Oktoberfest
Aecht Doppelbock

As always, it’s $10 which gets you the tasting and a $10 credit towards a beer purchase. Join us Thursday at 6:30 for a fun time! Jawohl!

Beer Goggles Classes in the new year

Hey folks! Just your friendly craft beer cyborg checking in to give you the skinny on the upcoming series of craft beer classes. I have put together a journey through the world of barley (and a few apples) that will take us to many far off (and a few oddly familiar) places.
The classes will go as follows:

Always Look on the Light Side of Ale
Join the Dark Side
Belgium? I Hardly Know Um!
Merry Old English Ales
Reinheitsgeborg
Round the Cape: The Pale Ales That Went to India
Big Bad Apples
Eat Your Wheaties
Cyborg’s Choice (it’s gonna get weird and delicious)

I’ll be posting the beers for each week’s class at the beginning of the week.
Classes will start Thursday Jan 15th at 6:30pm (and each following Thursday thereafter) and should run about an hour.  Classes will be limited to 15ppl max, sign up early to assure you a seat.
The cost is $10 BUT those who attend the class will get a $10 credit towards the purchase of beers off my Wall of Awesome (the craft beer shelves).

Hope to see you there!
