Durham – Beer lovers unite. Counting House will wrap up its 2017 Fork + Bottle dinner series with a four-course dinner by Executive Chef Thomas Card featuring pairings by local Starpoint Brewing on Thursday, October 19 at 6:00 p.m.
“Starpoint beers have such great depth of flavor profiles,” said Card. “We’ve created a menu that will bring out the hops, barley, malt and other unique flavors within the beers. For example, the I Yam What I Yam Spiced Sweet Potato Ale will be complemented by our roasted pork loin with sweet potato gnocchi.”
The dinner will kick off with a reception in 21c Museum Hotel’s gallery spaces, followed by four courses in the private dining room at Counting House. The menu will feature dishes from the land and sea including salmon tartar with roasted sunchokes and toasted oats; crab salad with citrus gelle and whipped yogurt; roasted pork loin with sweet potato gnocchi and braised red cabbage; and toffee custard with dark chocolate and lemon curd. Featured beers include KingadaNorf (Oatmeal Pale), Dirty D (American IPA), I Yam What I Yam (Spiced Sweet Potato Ale) and Da Bull (Dopplebock).
Nestled in the pine forests of Carrboro, N.C., Starpoint Brewing is dedicated to bringing the freshest and best tasting ales and lagers to North Carolina. The initial success of Starpoint Brewing is due to our focus on producing the highest quality beer. Starpoint uses whole cone hops, premium malts, and time honored brewing techniques.
