Super Bowl Menu

Let’s face it, some Super Bowl staples like 7-layer dip or pigs-in-a-blanket have become the Buffalo Bills of game day cuisine — they peaked in the 90s, are always a part of the big game but never a winner. If that’s the case at your Super Bowl party, we suggest channeling your inner Peyton Manning and calling an audible on this year’s menu.

To help get your menu off the bench and into the starting lineup, check out what The Ravenous Pig and Cask & Larder owners James and Julie Petrakis will be serving up this Sunday. Their menu includes recipes inspired by local fare where the two Super Bowl teams reside, with James and Julie’s signature Southern twist, of couse.
  • RECIPE BELOW! A New York Sour featuring Colorado distilled whiskey and Washington state syrah
  • Rye and Chai with Colorado distilled whiskey
  • House-made pimento cheese and pickled watermelon rind layered waffle fries
  • Boiled peanut hummus, pickled crudités and fried black eyed peas
  • Boudin-stuffed pepper poppers with country ham or bacon wrapped and fried
Main Dishes:
  • Grilled Colorado lamb ribs, black cardamom, burnt honey and yogurt
  • RECIPE BELOW! Chicken liver and pork belly bahn mi with marinated collard greens
  • Scratch-made biscuit sliders with country ham, pimento cheese, pepper jelly Tabasco and pickled green tomatoes
  • Cask & Larder’s homemade milkshake topped with chocolate chantilly

New York Sour cocktail:

1.5 oz spring 44 bourbon

1 oz fresh lemon juice

1 oz simple syrup

– Shake with ice and strain into rocks glass full of ice.

– Top with Washington syrah. Use a spoon for a layered effect, which is what made this prohibition era drink so popular in its heyday.

Chicken Liver and Pork Belly Bahn Mi:

– Marinate chicken livers with onion, mustard, soy, beer, olive oil and salt. Grill until medium-well.

– Brush sliced bacon with mirin and miso. Crisp in oven.

– Shred collard greens and grate carrots.  Marinate in kimchi marinade/puree (can be purchased at Asian markets).

Citra Hops

EVENT DATE ANNOUNCED: Thursday, March 5. Happy hour from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., $3 pints.

We’re HAPPY to report 2014 is off to a HOPPY start at Cask & Larder. Our legendary brew master, Ron Raike, is working his magic with one of craft beer’s most coveted ingredients: Citra Hops.

This elusive hops, which blooms just once a year and is distributed only to the country’s most accomplished beer artisans, will be available as part of a very limited IPA at Cask beginning sometime in the next month. As its name denotes, citra hops is known for its distinct tropical fruit undertones, which can range from citrus to mango and papaya. You’ll have to try it and taste for yourself.

Last year, Ron’s Citra Hops IPA yielded one of our most acclaimed beers to date. This year, we’re producing only 30 kegs and we want to share it with our E-newsletter subscribers first!
