Maybe an oyster stout with the po' boy? Apple fritters make me think of an accessible, backsweetened sour like Duchesse or Faro.

Definitely will keep those in mind in case Garrett can't come. In which case I'll keep the saison and the EIPA but drop the black.

52 people came out to our second event yesterday. Lots of work, but also lots of fun. App was three mini-sandwiches: pimento cheese, muffuletta, & shrimp remoulade; main was Jambalaya; dessert was drunken-apricot beignets served with a chicory creme anglaise. Beers were: Saison Dupont, Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, and Meantime Chocolate Porter. Had a journalist from the WSJ request an interview. Crazy times for a country that traditionally doesn't do beer with food.

So do you find the French interested or fascinated in things American? Or is it only just a novelty to them in regards to food? BTW being interviewed by the WSJ is no small thing!

Congrats again. Looks lovely.

The French who were there were very interested in seeing what 'real' American cuisine looked like. This was a funny thing Garrett mentioned as well, that when he goes to Europe and wants to cook all sorts of fancy French food for the beer pairings, everybody says, "OK, but could you make a real hamburger too?" - the things that pass for "authentic" American food around here...

Which is probably why we had 80% Americans and only 20% French. All of the Americans that came did so because they told me they really missed home cooking.
