From a press release:
“U Street neighborhood restaurant and bar The Fainting Goat is partnering with one of DC’s newest breweries, Atlas Brew Works, for a special tasting and pairing event on Tuesday, May 6 from 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. Leading up to the always-sold-out SAVOR American Craft Beer + Food Experience (May 9-10), The Fainting Goat will pair four savory and sweet spring dishes with craft Atlas brews – one being an exclusive Fainting Goat cask ale created just for the event – while guests can meet and chat with Atlas head brewer Will Durgin.
The Fainting Goat’s first-ever beer event will showcase the versatility and complementary nature of pairing food and beer. Executive Chef James Barton has created four special dishes to pair with each of Atlas’ signature brews, which will include:
Local Rappahannock Oysters topped with cucumber gel, brown butter vinaigrette and kimchi, paired with Atlas’ District Common, a California Common
Arctic Char cured in Rowdy rye ale + peppercorn with pickled ramps, barley and rye tuile with “everything” seasoning, paired with Rowdy, a hop-forward rye ale
Smoke Roasted Pork with miso carrot, chilies, basil, mint and pork skin, paired with the Home Rule, Atlas’ new seasonal IPA
The meal will end with a special dessert paired with an exclusive cask ale brewed by Atlas for the event.
Tickets to the Fainting Goat’s Atlas Beer Tasting are $45/person and available for purchase here.
