On March 11th, I dined at Darby’s Public House for the Steamworks Beer Dinner. Chef A.J. Jackson prepared 3 courses which were paired with each of the Steamworks beers.
Steamworks Brewmaster Caolan opened the night talking about his beers and the dinner we were all about to enjoy. The Steamworks Pale Ale kicked off the meal.
Duck & Pork Rillettes – olive oil crustini with a baby frisee salad
Prosciutto Wrapped Ling Cod with rainbow chard, poptato anna, tomato puree and cipollini onions
Chocolate Stout Tart with raspberry coulis and Grand Marnier whipped cream
My favourite dish was the Chocolate Stout Tart which was outstanding. The best pairing of the meal was the Steamworks Oatmeal Stout with the Chocolate Stout Tart. Darby’s Public House is located at 2001 Macdonald Street in Vancouver. Learn more about Steamworks Beer here.
