Why wait for October when you can celebrate Septemberfest?
Palm Beach’s Cafe Boulud is getting a head start on Oktoberfest by partnering with several local breweries for a spectacularly paired biergarten on Sept. 25.
It’s a juxtaposition worth drinking to: Internationally renowned chef Daniel Boulud’s epitome of white-linen, fine dining on Palm Beach island hosting a beer garden with some of the best craft breweries in Florida, including three from Palm Beach County.
Executive chef Rick Mace will set up four dining stations around the courtyard of the historic home of Cafe Boulud, The Brazilian Court, where Tampa’s Cigar City Brewing, Tequesta Beer Co., Twisted Trunk Brewing, and Barrel of Monk’s Brewing will be serving a variety of their beers.
Mace’s offerings will include the following: a station dedicated to river oysters, clams, mussels, and marinated squid; a sausage station with Thai links, chorizo and boudin noir; one dedicated to three kinds of sliders; and a dessert station with French tarts and American pies.
Among the beers are several hard-to-find offerings, including Cigar City’s pumpkin beer, Good Gourd, which they produce just once a year, Barrel of Monks’ Three Fates Belgian tripel and Tequesta’s Der Chanellor pilsner.
