Sure, you've seen plenty of food and wine pairings, but how about replacing the vino with beer? 35 Elites and guests did just that, poshing up a night at Tanjong Katong new kid The Ground with four courses of bar food, paired with tasty craft beers!
Chief Beer Drinker and owner Adriel put us through a crash course in tasting notes and started off the night with a Waldorf salad, and dry, crisp #9 from Magic Hat Breweries – the pronounced apricot notes certainly brought out the sweetness in that salad!
Next up – gourmet sausages, anyone? The Italian-herbed morsels were paired with the interestingly-named Circus Boy, also of Magic Hat, with hints of lemongrass.
The mains arrived, and those who scribbled down notes with our custom-made tasters' sheet will remember that the Chiron's malty, bitter finish went a long way to put out the fires of The Ground's super-spicy Burning Ground pizza! The creamy carbonara that came after was also a welcome relief, together with the crowd favourite Delirious Tremens.
Adriel suprised us all art the end with a tasting of some Ground-exlusive Crabbie's Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer to close up the night! Steeped in real ginger for 8 weeks to produce its deep, deliciously spicy flavour, this sweet treat sent us all home with a real warmth in our (beer) bellies!
