Degustation Dinner & Event Food
Friday, July 21, 2017

Menu – each course will be paired with a selection of beers to match
A menu created to match the best of the Australian winter season, starting with a light dish of organic winter vegetables such as pickled organic NSW carrots and Meredith dairy fresh goats curd to be perfectly matched with the lighter style ales.
The next courses then move east across the globe and celebrate the fragrant spices and herbs grown and used in traditional Mexican, Chinese and Indian cuisine.
We finish the meal with a classic European dessert of rich 80% cocoa chocolate tart to go with the Pilsner and dark ale brewing method.
Pickled winter vegetables with Meredith goats curd and soft herbs. Served with warm sourdough.
