27 food trucks paired with 27 breweries. So much good eating and drinking is about to happen at tonight’s Beer Dabbler at Twin Cities Pride in Loring Park. Among all the terrific pairings you’ll be in for, here are five things you should be sure not to miss.
1. The debut of Bauhaus Brew Labs
The Pride Dabbler will be the public’s very first chance to taste suds from the Northeast lager specialists Bauhaus Brew Labs. They’re paired with Hot Indian Foods, who will be serving up chicken and veggie samosas alongside Bauhaus’ Wagon Party West Coast-style lager and Stargrazer schwarzbier.
2. Hola Arepa integrates Tin Whiskers
Besides bringing their spectacular Cuban arepa to the party, Hola Arepa is getting into the pairing spirit with their brewery partner, Tin Whiskers. They’re making queso fundido with Ampere Amber, and a bavarian cream whoopie pie with Short Circuit Stout.
3. Tiki Tim’s beer/cheese slider
We’re all about beer and cheese here at the Growler, and Tiki Tim’s will serve up what looks to be one of the more unique food offerings of the Dabbler. They’re using Dangerous Man‘s kolsch to beer-batter a disc of goat cheese, and serving it on a sweet Hawaiian roll, and topped with fresh raspberry jam.
4. Sausage Fest
There’ll be no shortage of tubed meat at the Dabbler this year. Farmers market favorites Tollefson Family Grill will have their brats on hand, Red River Kitchen has a Schell’s Goosetown brat, Taste of Target Field has Kramarczuk’s brats, NateDogs will feature a Sociable Ciderwerks slaw, and Chef Shack brings a bacon brat with all the fixings.
5. Brewers Specials
Indeed is bringing their popular mojito version of Shenanigans, Northgate Brewing will have a firkin of ESB dryhopped with Brewers Gold and caraway seed, and the Herkimer is brewing up a Belgian Wit/Berliner Weisse hybrid.
