UPDATE: We were told by the PR that these were two separate events. Turns out, in order to enjoy the "free" beer sampling, you need to purchase the $45 meal.
Guests can pop in for "free" beer tastings (for those who register for the $45 meal discussed below) as the neighboring brewery takes over three of Brigantessa’s 16 taps.
There will also be Brewery ARS representatives on site to educate consumers about their brewing philosophy and methods.
“We love Brewery ARS's unpretentious, passionate and artisanal approach,” says Francis Cratil Cretarola of Brigantessa. “From labeling themselves a ‘Garage Brewery,’ in part because of the space they occupy, to the relaxed vibe of their place, from their commitment to fresh and seasonal ingredients to the desire to clear new paths, they are a neighbor we want to support.”
After the "free" beer tastings session, guests can enjoy the special meal they paid for, which costs $45 per person. Beer during the meal is extra.
The full menu is listed below:
Hop Shoot Pesto Bruschetta
Marinated Tomato, stracchiatella
ARS Beer-Battered Scamorza,
Vegetable Fritto Misto
Potato Croquette, Pickled Cauliflower, Lacto Fermented Mushrooms
White Anchovies, Ricotta, Bufula Mozzarella, Rosemary
ARS Asiago Fonduta, Long Hot Peppers, Hop Shoot Puree, Fennel Sausage
Brigantessa plans on hosting more collaborations with breweries in the future, so keep an eye out for upcoming events.
Brigantessa is located at 1520 E. Passyunk.
