Porktoberfest Day 2: Bratwurst Flatbread?

I scheduled myself in New Jersey today- but due to one of the  the worst rains since1902 (The 2.99 inches that fell overnight broke the old record of 1.79 for an Oct. 1 set back in 1902) I wasn't going to risk it.

So I detoured to Mt. Airy.  I thought for sure I could get some pork of some sort at McMenamins.  But surprisingly enough- there was none (just delicious, just-tapped cask of Sly Fox Pale Ale).   And even more surprising- buddy next door at Earth Bread + Brewery, Tom Baker, who has a pretty veggie friendly menu entices me (I ran into him at Mcmenamins) with a special this month- Bratwurst flatbread.

Brats (Veal and Pork), creamy mustard sauce, red cabbage, potatoes with a bit of scallion-a little munch of Munich right on Earth's delicious flatbread.

I enjoyed that with his smokey Beechwood Brown. 

Fans of the brewpub can look forward to their 2 year anniversary on Sat. October 9th.  They'll be putting a few special beers on tap.  And the couple is finally going to open that Jeroboam of Sly Fox Renard D'or from 2007!

Enjoy your Saturdays. I'm off to Kennett Square now.
