Eat Your Beer at the Blue Point Beer Dinner at Wicked Awesome Snackbar on July 14
Beer is something of a lifeblood at Wicked Awesome Snackbar. In addition to serving a selection of micro and craft brews at the new restaurant in west Boca Raton, co-owner/chef Paul Berger said he and his crew tend to use the beverage in the kitchen on a regular basis (to cook with, not to consume while cooking).
Among the combos are a deconstructed Reuben "sandwich" meatball matched with Blue Point's Rastafa Rye, which Berger cited as a natural match, given that there's rye in the bread and the beer. Another pairing brings together a spicy chicken samosa with mango-beer chutney and the Hoptical Illusion IPA. Many of the dishes that will be served that night incorporate the beer itself into the recipe, like a mac 'n' cheese made with Toasted Lager and served with the same brew alongside.
