A.kitchen and Allagash Celebrate American Craft Beer Week

Bryan Sikora of a.kitchen will be serving up a beer-pairing menu on Wednesday May 16th starting at 6pm to correspond with American Craft Beer Week from May 14-20th.

Each course on the menu will be paired with a beer from Allagash Brewing Company. Allagash’s own Suzanne Woods will be on hand to answer any beer questions while Sikora creates and serves his dishes.

The special menu will range from $9 to $18 and beers will range from $6 to $8. Dishes can be ordered individually or for $65 guests can create their own four-course meal from the menu.

Menu items include Rib-Eye Deckle Steak with spring onions and crispy potatoes, for pairing with Victor, a limited release Belgian-style strong ale brewed with red wine grapes; and Spaghetti with Nova Scotia Mussels for pairing with Victoria, another limited release, brewed with chardonnay grapes.

The menu will be served all night on Wednesday May 16th in addition to the usual menu. For reservations call a.kitchen at 215-825-7030.
