Oktoberfest has come and gone in Munich but we still crave a good beer with the hearty flavors of fall. And while the Northwest may not have as long a brewing history as Germany, Seattle definitely boasts some of the best microbrews in the world. Lucky for TASTE guests, you don’t have to pick just one with our October Flight & Bite featuring Roger’s Pilsner from Georgetown Brewing Company, Pike Brewing Company’s IPA and Elysian’s Perseus Porter. Each one ounce pour of beer comes with perfectly paired bite – a three-course plate for only $13.

As with our Wine Flight & Bites, the TASTE chefs and sommeliers began with a raw tasting as they sampled each beer. Starting with the most basic ingredients, our team pinpointed the standout pairings and flavor profiles of each brew. The light coriander and citrus tones of the Roger’s Pilsner inspired a cucumber, orange and olive relish atop our pulled pork slider. The deeper flavors of hops and cream in the Pike IPA required a salty and spicy counterbalance found in our petite fried calzone stuffed with Italian sausage and served with a house-made tomato-fennel ketchup. We finished up our October Beer Flight & Bite with the dark, chocolaty Perseus Porter taking on the earthy flavor of local chanterelle and gruyere mac-and-cheese. Whether you get one pairing or all three, you are in for a treat.
