Taking it cross country
Local 149 celebrates some of its favorite craft brewers on a tasty tour across this great nation. Four courses highlight the unique culinary offerings from the region where the beer was created. It is a celebration of people doing their thing locally throughout America. Starting in the great state of Massachusetts with a rare beer from Berkshire Brewing this tour will take you to the plains of Nebraska, the shores of San Diego and ending in the bustling streets of New Orleans.
- Start the evening off with Berkshire Brewing Company's Saint of Circumstance. A nearby brush fire lent a smoky quality to the hops and the beer was aged in Jack Daniels barrels. This unique offering will be accompanied by New England clambake passed hors douvres: stuffies, raw oysters, corn on the cob with lobster butter.
- Next Local will take you to Nebraska to the aptly named Nebraska Brewery to taste their Infinite Wit. This unfiltered offering will be paired with a salad of confit rabbit, grilled peaches, blackberries and asparagus. The flavors we bring you from the plains will be anything but flat!
- Roll into the BIG city of San Diego, we hit you with some BIG flavors with an ale from Stone Brewing, brewers of IMMENSE beers. Adding a twist, this ale will be featured in a smoky tequila and beer cocktail, and paired with crispy shrimp tacos, purple cabbage, cucumber and habanero avocado cream.
- Ending Local 149's tour in the vibrant and playful city of New Orleans we present you with a praline ice cream float. House made praline ice cream will be drenched in Abita Brewing’s Turbodog brown ale. An adult version of a childhood favorite exemplifies what the boisterous city of New Orleans is.
