At Mekong on Kensington Street, we think one of the best food pairing duos is beer and curry and our friends at some of Sydney’s best craft breweries – Akasha Brewing, Young Henrys, Four Pines and Batch Brewing – happen to agree with us. So we’ve teamed up with them to create the Craft Beer and Curry Series; an opportunity for you to enjoy handpicked, limited edition craft beers from these leading artisan local breweries alongside some of Chef Tiw Rakarin’s best Indochine curries.
The rich, fiery zing of a fragrant curry and the cool, crisp taste of a good beer is a match made in heaven. Indian curries have long been paired with an Indian Pale Ale due to the hoppy nature of the beer but the reality is, there are a number of beer styles that can complement a curry and we want to highlight some of the best in this Craft Beer and Curry Series.
Each event will hero a selection of curries from one of the country’s that border the Mekong river, providing you with the easiest way to cruise down the Mekong with a quality beer in hand. Chef Tiw has curated a five course, shared menu that complements the beers from each brewery. Each dinner will feature three curries with a brewer on hand to chat through the selected beers they’ve matched to the dishes.
We don’t want this to be a stuffy, formal night out – it’s just a great chance to enjoy brilliant curries alongside equally brilliant beers. We hope you can join us.
