We’ve been serving up addictive food and creative brews since 2006, and we still believe that there is nothing better than an ice-cold beer to wash down your meal! This week we have a very special food and beer pairing as we bring together a fantastic local brewery with our famous Four Napkin Pork Nachos.
Our Four Napkin Pork Nachos earned their name! Our pork is marinated in tequila and lager & slow-cooked, then topped with Merkts cheddar cheese sauce, corn salsa, Cuban black beans, roasted red peppers, onion, lettuce and sour cream. We believe that nachos are truly the perfect bar food because they are great for sharing, savory, salty, and let’s be honest… most importantly cheesy!!
Our nachos deliver tangy and sweet notes from the pork which complement the malty sweet flavors of dark lagers. We chose Half Day Brewing’s Open Sky Amber Lager because it’s unique and has a big caramel malt profile to play off of the pork. Also, the clean finish of this brew helps cut through the richness of our Merkts cheese sauce. Nachos and beer are a classic pairing, but this duo takes it to the next level.
Half Day Brewing Company is located in Lincolnshire, IL and they are the definition of creative brews! From smoothie style ales to their new sports drink inspired brew, they deliver on what’s new & exciting in craft beer. Their Open Sky Amber Lager is one of their flagship beers and it is carried at all Tap House Locations.
Come try out this delicious combination at your local Tap House Grill!
