Terrapin Beer and Food Pairing

My friend Gretchen invited me to a beer and food pairing event at Hops Road restaurant this week. Each month, Hops Road invites a brewery to come share their beers. The staff at Hops Road creates a course to pair with every beer. 

Thursday night, we had 5 courses! 

This event featured Terrapin Beer Co from Athens, GA. 

Courses included a chilled apple beet soup with Rye Pale Ale, a couscous salad with Hi- 5 IPA, a pimento cheese dip made with hops plus kettle chips and pretzel bread, and the main event (which was actually served first)-- the Elvis Presley-- a Cronut burger with bacon and banana paired with "liquid bliss"- a chocolate peanut butter porter made with banana chips in the cast. 

Dessert included banana chocolate chip cake paired with another version of "liquid bliss." 

Hops Road does not advertise this event. But it does require tickets! Stop by to get information about the next event! I would absolutely go again.
