Brave Horse Tavern, Tom Douglas’ Seattle beer hall, is about to take a dive. Usually Brave Horse focuses on fancy beers, the kind we all love, and they host decadent beer dinners that pair spectacular dishes with fine beers from beloved breweries. Well, on November 14th, Brave Horse Tavern is trying a different approach: domestic swill and dive bar food.
Don’t get your barley in a bunch. This isn’t a change of direction for Brave Horse, but for Domestic Decadence they will offer a selection of ice-cold domestic beers, like Miller High Life and Rainier, and pair them with inspired takes on dive bar classics like pickled eggs and cream of mushroom soup. No doubt, the food will be amazing, regardless of its humble roots. As for the beer, it’ll be cheap and served in frosty-cold ice buckets.
According to Tod Rotkis, marketing manager for Tom Douglas Restaurants, “A lot of our staff over there comes from the Midwest, so they have created an event celebrating their love of domestic beers like Rainier and Miller (Champagne of Beers) High Life. To go along with those tasty suds, they’ve come up with a menu of some new takes on some classic dive bar dishes.”
This isn’t the kind of thing we usually talk about on the Washington Beer Blog and it doesn’t represent a change of direction for us either, but this event just sounds fun. If nothing else, it is a departure from the kind of highfalutin beer stuff we usually post.
