Once you go black...you know the rest. And that pretty much sums up one cool event at The Perfect Pint.
The best local dark Craft Beer paired with dishes created for that one special evening...it's Black Tuesday at The Perfect Pint.
Last July 29, The Perfect Pint goes black. Black Tuesday at The Perfect Pint is a celebration of dark Craft Beer paired with different types of dishes created by Chefs Gino and Gene Gonzalez. Freshly brewed, artisan craft beer and good food...definitely time to go black.
I start with the rich and malty Dark Lager by Pivo Praha, a locally brewed Czech-style beer with a distinct caramel hint and creamy white head...
...paired with The Perfect Pint's Calamari Negra, squid rings with a crisp and flavorful squid-ink batter. Served with a creamy dip with a just a hint of wasabi for sharp notes, the dish plays perfectly with the bold flavors of dark craft beer. Other pairings include Katipunan's Signal No. 1 Stout paired with Maple-Glazed Ribs, Graveyard Shift Porter, one of The Perfect Pint's own brews, with Angus Steak; The Perfect Pint's Black Mamba Stout paired with fresh oysters, and Midnight Brew Stout, a special brew created by Chef Gene Gonzalez, paired with Black Pizza.
Another round of Dark Lager by Pivo Praha gets you in the groove in no time as we sampled The Perfect Pint's other signature dishes. Heap of Fresh Bacon with House Pickles (P 380), crisp and thick strips of homemade bacon with The Perfect Pint's pickled vegetables, recommended with a cold classic Pilsner. But since this is Black Tuesday, I stick with my Dark Lager by Pivo Praha.
The salty notes of the crisp bacon are perfectly rounded out by the subtle malty sweetness of the Dark Lager by Pivo Praha. Another round? Absolutely.
Insanely Garlic Salpicao (P 270), tender marinated beef topped with, yup, an "insane" amount of garlic and garlic sauce. The contrasting textures of tender beef and crisp garlic makes you go for yet another bite. Familiar, comforting flavors with a cool twist.
Beer Battered Fish N Chips with Creamy Cucumber Dip (P 280), served with thick-cut fries. The cucumber dip adds a creamy layer of flavor and texture to this comforting dish. Classic pub grub, and perfect with a pint.
Maple Glazed Ribs, one of the featured dishes for The Perfect Pint's Black Tuesday, recommended with Katipunan's bold flavored Signal No. 1 Stout. Excellent food and awesome beer, Tuesdays definitely just got better. A one night only event, I think the guys at The Perfect Pint have a winner here. Curated pub grub with the best local artisan craft beer, just can't get better than that. And I'm raising my glass hoping the guys at The Perfect Pint would make Black Tuesday a regular event...cheers!
