Curriculum di Birra
Birrifico Italiano's La Flourette (3.8% abv)
A light yet wonderfully complex, multi-layered beer brewed with whole roses, violets, elderberry,honey and black pepper.
Oysters on the half shell, elderberry mignonette.
Birreria Baladin's Nora (6.8% abv) –
From an ancient Egyptian recipe featuring unmalted kamut, this triple style brew uses a bare minimum of hops as a preservative, instead utilizing ginger, myrrh, and orange peel for its spicy character.
Grilled swordfish with an orange and ancho chile glaze,
micro arugula salad.
Birrifico Montegioco’s Demon Hunter (8.5% abv) –
A malt-driven, dark amber, strong ale with flavors of plums, caramel, toffee and chestnuts, that finishes on decidedly dry hoppy note.
Slow braised wild boar, porcini mushrooms, creamy polenta
Birrifico Italiano's Scires (7% abv) –
A blend of young and old sour beers, that is brewed with wild yeast and seasonal sweet black cherries. The result is a fairly dry, slightly funky, fresh cherry ale with a lingering sour finish. Delicious!
Cherry and ricotta tart, pistachio crumble
