Beer & Cheesecake Pairing

Beer & Cheesecake Pairing

Our next pairing event is right around the corner, and it's one you definitely don't want to miss.

Join us on Tuesday, Feb 28th for a beer and cheesecake pairing. You read that right...cheesecake.

Tickets are $35 each and are available ONLY at the tap room, so come in asap and get them. The event will sell out quickly. Hesitation is your enemy.

We've partnered with Delish Cakes in Elgin to offer four types of cheesecake that will be paired with four 5oz pours of incredible beers by Perennial Artisan Ales, including Sump Coffee Stout and Abraxas, an Imperial Stout brewed with ancho chili peppers, cacao nibs, vanilla beans, and cinnamon sticks. Two other beers will also be announced later this week.

We'll start with a reception at 5pm and the pairings will begin at 7pm. We'll discuss each beer and why it was chosen to pair with each type of cheesecake. Afterwards, stick around for a while to try some other beers on our tap list.

Again: tickets are available for purchase only at Plank Road Tap Room. Grab a pint while you're there.

Note: we will be closed to the public during this event.

Other Note: gratuity for your bartender is not included in the ticket price, so please reward Gaby for her hard work! That's a whole lot of glassware to clean!

Thursday Night Bites, Not Flights (S1E1)

Thursday Night Bites, Not Flights (S1E1)

This Thursday, we're kicking off a brand new event series at the tap room.  Each week, we'll feature a special tapping and food truck, often including a suggested pairing.

Season one, episode one (S1E1) features one of our favorite beers, Firestone Walker's Bretta Weisse, a Berliner Weisse aged in 1,700-gallon French Oak horizontal foeders for 8 months.  Expect plenty of tartness with fruity esters and a dry, funky finish.

Mario's Cart will be filling our bellies out back, and we've chosen their ceviche tostada as our suggested pairing.  The tartness of Bretta Weisse should play very nicely with the citrus and seafood flavors from the ceviche.

These evenings will be flightless to keep things moving and conserve table space.

We'll kick off right when you're heading out of work at 5pm, so come in, grab a seat, and settle in for a flavorful ride. 

**NOTE: we're a 21-and-over establishment.**
