Beerkary recap: Weekend of Darkness

Two events in one month isn’t our usual pattern, but it was pleasure to return to The Scratch to support “The Weekend of Darkness” that celebrated dark beers.

The limited Beerkary menu explored dark bread, dark sweets and dark meats.

  • First time with table numbers.  Thanks to Kieran and The Scratch, who suggested and helped run the system
  • First Beerkary cookie, that was a super chocolate-y hit
  • First limited grill menu, taught us new lessons for production
  • My fave last customers who took some left-over bread loaf ends for their soup dinner party…who just might have inspired a new product!

Big thanks to friends, family and supporters.  It’s always great seeing familiar faces.

Special thanks to Tom and Kieran for the service support.
