Pig & Pints- Central Social Hall St.Albert
On July 12 I got to spend my Sunday Funday at Central Social Hall’s newest location in St. Albert for their Pig & Pints event, in partnership with Samuel Adams. The event was open to the public from 4:00 pm to close, to try out the the whole roasted hog (cooked by All Seasons Pig Roast & Bar-B-Q http://www.aspr.ca/ ) and $5 delicious pints of Samuel Adams.
Guests got to try a little but if everything that you would expect from a Pig Roast BBQ, baked potatoes, beans, coleslaw and the what everyone came for, the freshly pulled pork.
As foodie blogger guests who had the pleasure of trying some of the other tasty menu items that Central Social Hall offers. We ordered the albacore tuna tataki + won tons, charcuterie board, and ball park pretzel. The pretzel was my personal favorite, it was accompanied by a roasted poblano + white cheddar sauce WHICH WAS UNREAL! Everything paired nicely with our cold pints of Samuel Adams Boston Lager. Next time your in and having a pint of Samuel Adams, Bar Manager Coady Ruberry suggests you pair it with one of their starters:
“Sam Adams is a great full-bodied, approachable craft beer, I find the balanced hops are not overpowering and it’s my absolute favourite beer to drink with our Lime Serrano Chicken Nachos.”
If nachos are not your cup of tea, then stick with the pork, Central’s Chef Redgie Salinana suggests that the flavour profile of the barbecued pulled pork is complemented nicely by the richness of the Sam Adams Boston Lager.
“The full layers of sweet and savoury that you will find within the beer are mirrored and paired perfectly with the roasted pulled pork flavours in the meat, spices and marinade,” says Redgie. The event was all about the Pig & Pint, such a smart combination for Central & Samuel Adams to team up on this event.
During the event Central did a bunch of Samuel Adams giveaways, which included Gift Certificates, t-shirts & pint glasses. Guests of the event could also share their Pig and Pints experiences by using the #SamInHand hashtag on Twitterand Instagram. In case you missed out on all the fun give Samuel Adams a follow on twitter for all us guest bloggers posts,
Last Sunday’s Pig & Pints event was a part of Samuel Adams Restaurant Takeover Series. This program shows the connection Samuel Adams has with both chefs and customers in the food community. Samuel Adams has help lead the craft beer revolution, reviving a passion for full bodied brews that are robust and rich with character.
