After much R&D (Raising your glass & Drinking), the team at ART Restaurant & Lounge have partnered with NW Peaks Brewery to exclusively create Never Trust a Skinny Chef. The 24-ounce northwest pale ale has a light malt backbone and bitterness with a medium body and clean finish.
It is available in ART and through In-Room Bistro for Four Seasons Hotel Seattle guests.
“There are so many great micro-breweries in our backyard. We wanted to have a beer that is distinctly Seattle and would go well with our market-to-ART cuisine and 55 Locals spirits program,” says ART Restaurant Executive Chef Kerry Sear. “One of our cooks, Christopher Kolakowski, took the lead in finding the right local brewery to partner with us. In our taste-testing panel, Never Trust a Skinny Chef won by a large margin.”
Kevin Klein’s Ballard-based NW Peaks Brewery is a “nano-brewery,” making less than one barrel of beer per batch, which allows them to brew different styles of beer in small quantities with attention to traditional styles and creative experiments. Never Trust a Skinny Chef ale will be served in custom beer steins and poured from a custom beer tap with the beer’s logo and a bobblehead handle of Chef Sear.
ART will launch the ale with a beer-themed TV Tray for lunch, four courses served at once, including ale-infused Penn Cove shellfish. A beer for connoisseurs and non-beer drinkers alike, the ale pairs well with many dishes on the menu, from the eggs benedict for breakfast to the fish and chips for lunch and miso cod and scallops for dinner.
Chef Jelle Vandenbroucke, ART’s restaurant chef, will introduce the beer and other NW Peaks brews in seasonal dishes such as mixed green salad with toasted hazelnuts, grapefruit slices and Redoubt Red Ale vinaigrette; and Magic Brown Ale pork & beans garnished with glazed Sriracha chili bacon. And to top it all off, order Pastry Chef Tara Sedor’s Stuart Stout bittersweet crème brûlée over Stout devil’s food cake or Skinny Chef Ale ice cream. Order through end of summer in the restaurant or take pints of the ice cream to go.
ART Restaurant will be partnering with local breweries for tastings, special dinners and other events in 2014.
