Getting crafty: March's beer pairing

Our next beer-pairing lunch is fast approaching and, this time, we're getting seriously crafty.

The craft beer industry has taken the world by storm – and South Africa is no exception. Beer drinkers and non-beer drinkers alike have been drawn to the subtleties of beers that use a wider variety of ingredients in greater quantities to enhance flavour and overall quality. SAB's very own craft beer, No 3 Fransen Street, continues to be one of the best-selling beers at the SAB World of Beer Tap Room.

The flavours inherent in craft beers, typically richer and more complex than commercial beers, lend themselves naturally to being paired with unusual and interesting dishes.

With this in mind, the SAB World of Beer team has put together a menu unlike any other we've created before.

Our March craft beer pairing includes:

  • Cold oak-wood smoked salmon on a bed of crunchy baby leaves, rosa tomatoes and mandarin segments drizzled with ceviche dressing, served with No 3 Fransen Street Krystal Weiss
  • Slow cooked Asian-style pulled pork slider topped with creamy wasabi coleslaw and lightly sweetened maple syrup, served with paprika spiced potato wedges, served with No 3 Fransen Street Red Irish Ale
  • Apple and ginger granita Cape Malay shrimp and chicken curry served with a duo of jasmine and plain basmati rice, chutney, sambals and a poppadum shard, served with Carling Blue Label
  • Banoffee cheesecake with decadent chocolate crumble, served with a No 3 Fransen Street Cream Ale

This amazing offer comes with at a cost of R450 per person. Please note that this extravagant menu comes with two warnings: book early and come hungry. Bookings are open until Friday 4 March; contact us today.

Come and have lunch with us this festive season
