Foodies and brew fans, we have the perfect event for you: the Barbarian Feast and Pairing Party on Sunday, April 23rd.

See what Barbarian Brewing has to offer while enjoying savory bites from the Bittercreek Alehouse.

Barbarian Brewing opened its doors in 2015 in Garden City. The brewery is owned by married couple, James Long and BreAnne Hovley. Sours and barrel aged beers are the focus of Barbarian Brewing, with the brewery’s mission to “create delicious, complex, artisan ales.” You’ll find complex beers that require a two to 18 month aging in oak barrels or stainless steel vessels.

There’s two offerings for you to choose from at the Barbarian Feast and Pairing Party: a 5 course pairing party or a family-style feast. Both events take place in The Cellar, the newly renovated event space below Red Feather Lounge.

The 5 course pairing party is from 1pm to 3pm and is $40 per person. The 5 course family-style feast is from 4:30pm to 7pm and tickets are $80.

Take a look at the menu and you’ll find yourself hungry:

Course 1
Food: House-cured salmon gravlax, pickled beetroot, crackers
Beer: Jotunheimr (Pronounced “Yo-tun-hame,” this beer was named after the Nordic land of the frost giants. This tart ale is made with juniper, elderberries, Spanish Cedar and yeast harvested off wild apples in Norway.)

Course 2
Food: Camembert baked in hay, dried fruit, rosemary
Beer: Space Wolf (East Coast style IPA made with Galaxy and Equinox hops. Super cloudy and juicy)

Course 3
Food: Curried stinging nettle soup, crisped bacon, chive flowers
Beer: Raise Your Horns (Raspberry, grapefruit and lime sour ale aged in wine barrels for a year with brett and lacto. Rich raspberry flavor with more subdued hints of grapefruit and lime.)

Course 4
Food: Juniper spiced smoked brisket, potato confit, grilled kale
Beer: The Morrigan (The Morrigan is a Celtic goddess that embodies death, war, and fate. She would inspire courage in the hearts of warriors as they charged into battle. We think our imperial stout holds that kind of power, too. Black as the Lady’s raven form, seductive and ferocious as their namesake. The bourbon influence brings out notes of vanilla and oak. A smooth, caramelized finish balances out the thick body and texture of our fierce brew. Lingering espresso notes are accentuated by the blackstrap molasses of the original imperial stout recipe.)

Food: Skyr cheesecake, local boysenberries
Beer: Cry of the Blackbirds (Blackberry and boysenberry sour that was aged with brett and lacto for more than one year in wine barrels)
