The funky cow print décor in the upstairs bar loft at Bob LeRose’s BarQ in Stamford was the perfect backdrop for the CTbites Invites celebration of CT’s Own burgeoning beer business.
Representatives from City Steam in Hartford, Half Full in Stamford and Two Roads in Stratford were on hand to pour and explain the brewing process of over six different craft beers to an enthusiastic sold out crowd.
Tim, the Pitmaster at BarQ , took this opportunity to create a special and very creative dinner menu that BarQ calls “original” CT BBQ. It was expertly paired with distinctive and unique tasting beers and included wood kissed sweet and sticky wings, paired with City Steam’s Blonde on Blonde ale, smoky brisket chili cups served in mini cast iron skillets and paired with City Steam’s Naughty Nurse lager. Pulled pork and brisket sliders with touch of chipotle mayo, with Two Roads Ol Factory Pilsner and “Dueling ribs” meaty St. Louis Sticky and Memphis Dry Rub with Two Roads, Roads to Ruin Double IPA.
