Urban Farmer Goes Wild, BBQ Style with Burnside Brewery

Just in time for the upcoming Oregon Beer Month, Chefs Matt Christian and Ryan Sturmer threw a party this past Saturday to celebrate one of their favorite pairings – Beer and Barbecue.  Collaborating with brewmaster Jason McAdam of Burnside Brewing Company, the chefs created a unique barbecue plate to perfectly pair with each of Burnside’s six most unique brews.  The Georgian Room was transformed for a down home feel complete with red and white table cloths, sunflowers and plenty of paper towels ready for guests who were licking their lips.  Matt and Ryan wanted a casual backyard feel, so we scrapped the formal coursed dinner for a party atmosphere complete with food stations and rock-n-roll music.  The beer was flowing, and the barbecue was not to be missed including Smoked Chicken Thigh Bits with Berliner Wise, the amazing Beef Ribs and watermelon paired with Oatmeal Pale Ale, and the Wagyu Brisket with corn casserole paired with the Burnside Meridian Rye.  Thanks to the Burnside crew who came out to represent and be merry with the guests.  Happy Beer Month Oregon!
