Get Cow and the Curd Curds at Kraftwork

kraftwork-cow-curdsChef Brian Lofink alerts us that Kraftwork in Fishtown will be the first restaurant serving cheese curds from the Best of Philly winning Cow and the Curd food trucks.

Rob Mitchell, owner of the Cow and the Curd has been working with Drexel University’s Food Lab to get his cheese curds out to the masses.

The Curd Caprese Salad, served with classic curds, basil aioli, aged balsamic vinegar, oven dried tomatoes and micro basil salad will be available for a limited time only. So get out there and get yours while you can.

The curd salad will also be available at the Sidecar Bar & Grille starting next Friday, April 24th.

I was lucky enough to try the “salad” yesterday  with some friends and it was a hit. Just one word of advice, don’t pop the whole curd in your mouth at once, bite halfway through and stretch that curd out. It just makes it even better.

Sidecar Bar & Grille is one of the lucky ones and they will be pouring the beer on Presidents Day, Monday, February 16th.

In order to make Monday as civil as possible, the bar is going to sell tickets for the beer on Sunday afternoon, beginning at 4pm.

Great Beer Is Running Rampant in Philadelphia

It appears that this year’s supply of Russian River Pliny the Younger has just about run dry. Philly Tap Finder’s last published tapping happened just a few hours ago. But since this is Philadelphia, our taps certainly haven’t run dry of great and in several cases, rare beer.

Bishop’s Collar, which poured the city’s last known keg of Pliny still has plenty of great IPAs pouring and is worth a trip today. The Sidecar’s monthly High Gravity Night is also tonight and includes high alcohol favorites like Bear Republic Apex, Bell’s Hopslam and Mikkeller Monk’s Elixr.
