Since it’s an Eagles bye-week and your Sunday afternoon is probably free, Farm and Fisherman Tavern’s Beer and Sausage Fest may be just what you’re looking for. The Tavern, in Cherry Hill is hosting the big event this Sunday, October 19th from 4:30 p.m. until 8 p.m.: Beer and Pig. The event will include a cocktail hour with passed pig h’orderves before the four-course meal.
Dishes will be created from two Rettland Farm heritage pigs that will be paired with local beers. At least four of the six beers that will be served (Kane, Cape May, and Forgotten Boardwalk) aren’t distributed in Pennsylvania. They will also be serving a punch containing rum distilled by Cooper River Distillers in Camden.

According to Craig Laban, if the Farm & Fisherman Tavern & Market can get the pricing under control–and if chef-owner Josh Lawler can find a balance between his farm-to-table impulses and being able to provide the kind of food people want to eat for the amount of money they want to pay–then South Jersey might just have another winner on its hands.
The Tavern is moved by the same go-local hands-on spirit, obvious from the shelves of Collingswood-roasted coffee, multihued eggs, and fridge cases of house-made sausages and terrines in the market. But the end goal of the Tavern involves a bigger challenge: to break down its whole animals, devotion to seasonality, and dedication to scratch cooking at a neighborhood-friendly price point that might actually pry someone away from their frozen Happy Hour BahamaRitas at the mall.
