supper on tap nashville-10

Last week I had the pleasure of attending an event hosted by Steadfast Coffee called Supper on Tap. The coffee shop paired up for the night with Founders Brewing to create a delicious menu paired with 5 of their beers.

Their plan is to make this a monthly event where, I think, they’ll pair with a different brewery each time and create a menu based around the beers.

Something I really loved was that right as they brought out each course, they talked about the beer in was paired with and then the chef came out and explained how/ why the dish paired well with this particular beer.

It really made me appreciate each dish a bit more and reminded me to be a bit more thoughtful as I was drinking the beer with the meal.

I failed to get a picture but my favorite beer was easily the Blushing Monk which is a beer made with lots and lots of raspberries. What I liked about it was that it had a strong raspberry flavor without being overbearingly sweet.

I do hope they continue to do these Supper on Taps because I loved it and already can’t wait to go to another one! If it’s something you’re interested in, check their instagram for updates on the next event.
