Phil Markowski is coming back to Philly. Phil wrote the book on Saisons...seriously, he wrote the definative book on Saisons. Phil was head brewer at Southhampton Brewery for at least a decade before moving on. That dude has won fists full of medals at both the Great American Beer Fest and the World Beer Cup.
Can't wait to taste the Two Roads Brewery samples that were dropped off today. The kitchen crew and I will gather to taste Phil's beers and come up with food pairings. This is a rare lunch event for Monk's, so we may only serve three or four courses. Go ahead, take the afternoon off.
WOW! Phil makes great beer. Keith & O'Neil came up with a small plate menu with which to pair:
TWO ROADS WORKMAN'S COMP SAISION - Escargot w/hazelnuts, garlic and butter
TWO ROADS ROAD 2 RUIN DOUBLE IPA - House made, spicy, fennel sausage w/sauteed onions & peppers w/pickled mustard seeds
TWO ROADS HONEYSPOT ROAD WHITE IPA - Baby Greens & Spicy Micro Greens with citrus vinagairette, topped w/grilled pineapple
TWO ROADS OL' FACTORY PILS - Jerked Chicken Thigh w/cauliflower puree
TWO ROADS NO LIMITS HEFEWEIZEN - Fried plantains w/rum raisin sauce
As always, beer selection and menu are subject to market conditions.
This Beer Lunch will be held in our back bar area. Very limited seating available.
All this for only $50 (plus tax & tip) is quite a steal. Call Jodi to purchase your ticket today. 215.545.7005
