If you didn't make it to our pop-up dinner at Schlafly this past Monday, you certainly missed a good time. We have been planning this dinner since we set our sights on St. Louis and it was a blast to bring it to life. A true celebration of all the great things happening in the St. Louis food world right now. It was an evening of Schlafly beer (even our very own brew, see here), artisan cured meats from Salume Beddu, some of the best bread in STL from Union Loafers, and pastured, off-cuts of meat from Bolyard's Meat and Provisions.
Cocktail hour kicked off with Kolcsh and Cider, charcuterie, fresh cheese and rye bread. A 3-course tasting menu followed that highlighted vegetable-forward winter ingredients, a bread made from the spent grains of our beer collaboration, and finished with a coffee stout float packed with ice cream and pecan sorghum caramel. Long tables made it feel like a beer hall. A view into the Bottleworks factory from the Crown Room brought the brewing process to life. What a special evening.
Here's a peek at the evening:
