Beer here! D.C. Hops to a Brooklyn Brewery Pairing Dinner at the Dupont Circle Shack

Mar 2, 2016

D.C. is hoppin’. On Tuesday, February 23rd, the Dupont Circle Shack hosted Burgers ‘n’ Brews, a beer pairing and dinner guided by our sudsy buds at The Brooklyn Brewery.

Attendees chowed down on four rounds of beers specially paired with burgers, Chick’n Shacks and frozen custard. The night kicked off with the Chick’n Shack paired with Defender IPA, a West Coast-style IPA brewed as the official beer of New York Comic Con. Fun fact: guests also received a limited-edition Defender pint glass from The Brooklyn Brewery.

We kept it classic for round two and served up our signature ShackBurger paired with a pint of ShackMeister Ale, specially brewed for us by The Brooklyn Brewery.

Guests were feeling the heat during the third course with a Jalapeño Burger (cheeseburger topped with crispy marinated shallots, Gordy’s Pickle Jar Thai basil pickled jalapeños and Sriracha sauce) perfectly matched with a glass of smooth dark lager.

No night’s complete without a little treat! Attendees polished off a serving of Jefferson’s Jam Concrete (vanilla custard, strawberry perserves, peanut butter and graham crackers from Pollystyle) paired with a citrusy pint of Sorachi Ace.
