You know beer pairs with pizza, burgers, and baseball, but what you don’t know is how well beer pairs with jams, jellies, and mustards. On May 25th, you can come find out exactly how delicious those pairings can be at our Jam and Beer Pairing.
What’s the Event?
We’ll be doing the normal Beach Cities Beer Hop, which visits Smog City Brewery, Monkish Brewing, and Strand Brewing Co, but at Monkish we’ll be doing a featured beer and food pairing with M. Greenwood Jams.
What’s the beer?
Monkish is an entirely Belgian inspired brewery with some of the most delightful and creative beers you can imagine. A single with elderflower, a tripel with pistachios and vanilla, a single-hopped galaxy beer, and a dubbel with sichuan peppercorns are but a few of the offerings made by brewer and owner Henry Nguyen.
What’s the jam?
We’re talking fig, meyer lemon ginger, apple butter, craft beer mustards, strawberry, strawberry-balsamic, summerberry, lime, and just about everything else that you ever wanted to spread on toast.
Sure. There will be some cheese, bread, crackers, nuts and pretzels to even further highlight the jam and beer.
It’s delicious, don’t overthink it. We’ll have some suggested pairings but you’ll be free to pair your own and pave your own culinary destiny.
How much does it cost?
It costs the same as any other public tour – $65. It includes visits to three locations, a flight of beer at each location, bottled waters, knowledgeable beer guide, all jam tastings, and fond memories.
Where can I purchase tickets?
Right on our Public Tour Schedule.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
