Truthfully, I’m not a big football fan. However, this year I’m excited for three reasons:
- It’s in Toronto.
- It’s the 100th anniversary.
- Jason & I are catering/co-hosting a BBQ buffet at our local bar ’cause neighbours throwing parties together is, well, neighbourly.
This post is about the third point.
TALLBOYS’ Grey Cup Party
presented by Neustadt Springs Brewery and the BBQ Pork Ninjas (that’s us)
Sunday, November 25, 2012 at 5pm
Enjoy complimentary samplings of Neustadt’s full roster of standard and seasonal beer.
The buffet menu includes some of our most popular dishes with a beery twist:
Slow smoked over applewood for 20 hours, and lovingly basted with the Neustadt Scottish Pale Ale. Served on a ciabatta bun with vidalia onion slaw.
Cooked over quebec sugar maple and rubbed with Pork Ninja’s sweet & heat jerk inspired seasonings.
Pit beans cooked cooked with Neustadt Mill Gap Bitter
Brewmaster’s Mac n’ Cheese
Topped with dry brewers yeast
Spent malt crusted Apple Crisp
This typical English Ale pours a clear brown with red notes and low carbonation. Aroma is almost purely of caramelized malts with hints of wood & rye. The Malt-forward flavour also has some earthy elements plus a bit of nuttiness in the finish. – One of my favourites.
This lager pours a pale gold, almost completely clear. This crisp beer is punctuated by light sweet malts in the nose, with a hint of graininess. The hop character is very subdued, leaning toward the grassy, earthy vein which is typical in English hops.
This easy drinking refreshing ale is malt-forward in taste, with hints of the barrel wood or peat that are typical in Scottish beers. The caramelized malt sweetness become more bitter in the finish giving it a touch of dryness.
Sour Kraut lager (a seasonal)
Using the standard Lager as a base, this beer is all raspberry in the nose. The flavour however is punctuated by a strangely sweet tartness that finishes clean. This surprising beer is both refreshing and easily drinkable.
Texas Tea Honey Stout
Rich with roasted barley and toasty brown malt flavour that tastes of chocolate-covered hazelnuts and cinnamon spice. The added Ontario honey ensures the beer starts sweet, but the dark roasted malt gives it a smooth dry finish.
$25. Reserve your spot at the bar or by calling the bar at 416-535-7486.
Cash or credit accepted.
This will sell out.
Hope to see you there!
Maybe I’ll tell the story of the time I was in the Grey Cup half time show.
