Taco Mac’s beer dinners usually feature a particular brewery paired with some great dishes. About once a year they go a bit off script. Each summer, Taco Mac Beverage Director Fred Crudder and Chef Matthew Deckard host what they dub – “Fred & Matt’s Big Picnic.” The literature for this year’s even doesn’t call it that, but I like the name so that’s what it’s called. (Fred take note.) The dinner features Atlanta new comer 21st Amendment, Sierra Nevada, Aspall Cider, Harpoon, Brooklyn and Einbecker. Here’s the menu –
The Jean Girard – Gregory’s favorite beer cocktail.
Course 1: Serrano Ham wrapped watermelon, radish sprouts, five peppercorns
