Pork “U” Back Room at the Taproom- Informational Beer & Bacon Pairing Class

Saturday, January 13th 2-4pm

Stable Craft Brewing will host Pork “U” an informational beer and bacon pairing class from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 13 in the back room of the tap room. Pork “U” is a beer and bacon pairing class hosted by Stable Craft’s award-winning head brewer Christopher Fann and bloggers, Jason Baker from “Beer Bacon & More” and Josh Hall from “Swill & Swine”.

Fann, Baker, and Hall will each offer a particular expertise to this class as they walk participants through pairing six different Stable Craft beers with six different types of bacon. Matt Milhit, Stable Craft’s hospitality director and taproom manager came up with the idea to do a beer and bacon pairing class during the brewery’s Porkuary event as a way to give people the opportunity to not only learn more about Stable Craft beers, but to also teach participants about beer and food pairings.

Milhit is a veteran of the hospitality industry having worked for major resorts, such as the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulfur Springs, W.Va., Boars Head Inn in Charlottesville, Va. and Airlie Center in Warrenton, Va. He is skilled with food and beverage pairings and enjoys sharing his expert knowledge with others.

Milhit will cure all of the bacon for Pork “U” himself. He plans to have the following types of bacon available for the class:

  1. A maple whiskey brined bacon smoked on hickory
  2. An agave syrup and tequila brined bacon smoked on mesquite
  3. A brown sugar and cinnamon dry-rubbed bacon smoked on applewood
  4. A black pepper and coffee dry-rubbed bacon smoked on hickory
  5. A chili dry-rubbed bacon smoked on cherry
  6. A dry-cured Italian bacon, or pancetta

The following Stable Craft beers will be paired with the above types of bacon:

  1. Porter
  2. Roostered Red
  3. Blue Ridge Sunryes Lager
  4. Throatlatch
  5. Britchin Brown
  6. Special Collaboration Beer – This is a beer that is specifically being brewed for this event.

Milhit encourages craft beer enthusiasts, cicerones, fans of wine pairings, foodies, pork lovers and anyone else interested in learning more about pairing craft beer with bacon to sign up.
