Beef and Beer – Community Get Together – Saturday May 30th

by Slow Food Cape Cod on May 22, 2009

Join us for our “Beef and Beer” celebration to kick off the summer season.

The subject matter is grass fed beef and the questions are: Where can you buy it on the Cape (?),  How does it taste (?), What is the big deal about it (?), and of course, the very important question, once it becomes a grilled juicy burger , what can you possibly pair it with (?)….
 
If these questions have been causing you to lose sleep, (or like me, to stop eating burgers) we have the answers. We are providing a taste and tour of all flavors of Cape Cod Beer and a smattering of sliders and Cape Cod Porter braised short ribs, from Northeast Family Farms.
  
Each hour we will be providing tours of the expanded digs at Cape Cod Beer (we are talking 5,000 square feet of space!). Todd Marcus, head brewmaster along with his wife Beth, have created an amazing business devoted to making local artisan beer. With a couple of gold medals from GIBC under their belt, for their Cape Cod Red (American Amber) and Dunkel Weizen (wheat beer) the tasting is sure to please.
 
We are also setting up a grill,  which will be tended to by Dole and Bailey’s Northeast Family Farms (NEFF).  This is our opportunity to  be educated about one of the finest meat products around New England. Dole and Bailey and NEFF has created a supply chain to connect the local farmer to the chef and markets that desire their products. All the cattle is grass-fed with a strict set of protocols to be raised slowly without the use of hormones and feed grade antibiotics. The result is an authentic, artisan food.
