Around the Web: Brewer’s Plate Edition

Royal Tavern Roast Pork | Bridges, Burgers & Beers

The annual Brewer’s Plate fundraiser for Fair Food was held this past Saturday at the Penn Museum. It’s one of our favorite events of the year and this year it was bigger and better than ever. The event received plenty of coverage that we’ve compiled below.

We spotted Messy & Picky’s Albert Yee racing around snapping pictures. He may have forgotten to take photos of some of his favorite bites but we’ll forgive him since he uploaded a slide show of 1200 pixel wide beauties. [Messy & Picky]

As for our favorites, we enjoyed the foie gras and terrines but found the roast pork shoulder and broccoli rabe sandwich from the Royal Tavern was a delightful upgrade to the traditional roast pork sandwich. On the beer side we had several favorites including McKenzie Brew House’s award-winning Saison Vautour and Flying Fish’s just released Exit 9 Scarlet Ale.
