Take a great little bistro bar nestled in the East Coast Bays area of the North Shore, a team that are mad on great food and flavours and a couple of Epic brewers and it’s got to be a good’n! We got contacted a few months back by Martin Cahnbley of the Internationalist, sat down with him and head chef, Karl and went through our range of beers, suggesting a few food matches as we went along.
The Internationalist team then put together this menu and I’m already counting down the days until we get to go and enjoy this scrumptious looking degustation, which is gonna look something like this!
Epic Lager with grilled Periperi prawns
NZ Craft Beer TV Mash Up with Duck liver vol-au-vents & red peppers
Epic Pale Ale with 3 different cheese blinis
Epic Hop Zombie with prosciutto and melon
Epic Armageddon IPA with beef carpaccio and garlic-butter sauteed oyster mushrooms
Epic Thornbridge Stout with beef pie served on mash with caramelised stout reduction
Epic Barrel Aged IPA with vanilla custard tart, topped with lychees, drizzled with IPA syrup and a globe of French Vanilla Ice Cream.
