Epicerie Café & Grocery, a French-Louisiana inspired cafe in the Rosedale neighborhood, recently teamed up with the brewing team of Jester King Brewery for the cafe’s first-ever Beer Brunch set to take place on Sunday, March 30th. Chef Sarah McIntosh has created a special menu incorporating Jester King’s acclaimed funky-style beers that has us jonesing pretty badly. I mean, Mad Meg Anglaise? Atrial Rubicite jam?!? Who do these people think they are?
They think they are awesome, that’s who. And they are. See the funky farmhouse-infused menu below for validation of that fact.
- Banana Bread French Toast with Mad Meg Anglaise
- Funk Metal Braised Brisket with Home Fries and a Fried Egg
- Raspberry and Atrial Rubicite Jam with Sweet Yogurt and Housemade Granola
- Wytchmaker Rye & Buckwheat Crepe with Ham, Vermont Cheddar, Fried Egg and a Beer Cheese Sauce
Folks from Jester King will be on hand brunching and answering patron’s beer-related questions. The special brunch menu, as with all dining at Epicerie, can be ordered at the counter. Epicerie’s normal brunch menu will also be available. Festivities kicks off bright and early at 10:30 AM. For those not so early to rise, the menu will be served until closing time at 3:00 PM. It is a brunch, after all.
-SarahConcerned you won’t get your Jester King fill at brunch? Make sure you reserve your bottles of Montmorency vs Balaton, a sour ale refermented with Michigan cherries, and Cerveza de Tempranillo, a barrel-aged wild ale refermented with California Tempranillo wine grapes. Bottles can be picked up during normal tasting room hours at the brewery starting this Friday, March 7th through Sunday, March 23rd.
