The Counter, a burger joint where you custom build your burger, is featuring a Beer and Burger Pairing Menu from February 28 through March 18 at both locations. The burger and beer pairings combine a flight of four mini beers with four beef mini burgers for the reasonable price of $13.
Newcastle (Brown Ale) paired with a beef mini, with swiss cheese, sauteed mushrooms, applewood smoked bacon, roasted garlic aioli.
Saint Arnold (Amber Ale) paired with a beef mini, organic mixed greens, fresh mozzarella, bruschetta mix,
balsamic glaze, basil pesto.
Longhammer (IPA) paired with a beef mini, lettuce blend, roasted corn and black bean salsa, jalapeno jack cheese,
fried jalapenos, chipotle aioli.
Widmer (Hefeweizen) - paired with a beef mini, with brie organic greens, julienned basil, tomato, apricot sauce.
Although I would like to have seen more local craft beers then just Saint Arnold, I certainly applaud their effort. After March 18th, the pairings will still be available but only Thursdays.
**Update - The Counter responded on Twitter to my post and has indicated they plan on using local beers when they debut their next pairing in April. Awesome!Copyright ¬© 2011 AllGoodBeer.com - All rights reserved
