Almanac Beer, Hapa Ramen

16 Nov

The release party for the Almanac Beer Farmhouse Pale w/ Plums was a very nice dinner and beer pairing at Bar Tartine with food by Hapa Ramen:

amuse: lardo, cauliflower with almonds and lemon, and a cup of ramen broth.

I tried two beers, an Oud Beersel Oude Geuze, and a German Gose.

swordfish crudo with a bit of spice, well-paired with Telegraph Reserve Wheat, a sour, slightly citrusy beer.

the blood sausage was hearty, almost smoky with the Anchor Christmas ale:

beer [edit: of course I mean beef] tartare and a slow-cooked egg were perfect:

cheese, pluot paste with lardo, farmhouse pale ale (made with plums):

    “beer tartare” is a good (and very apropos) typo. :)
