Sterle's Country House Teams Up With Platform for Beer Dinner



On Thursday, March 26, Sterle's Country House and Platform Beer Co. will team up for a beer-and-food filled night at the St. Clair neighborhood restaurant. The event runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The five-course banquet includes beer and food pairings, plus a tap takeover by Platform. It is the very first beer dinner hosted by Sterle’s new chef Jeff Jarrett.

"We are excited to be working with Platform for my first Sterle's beer dinner,” Jarrett says. “They're are the big thing right now, so we're hoping to showcase what we do to their customers."

Course one pairs bison tartare and egg gribiche with Platform’s Tache Noir, a dark saison. Course two is a springy baby kale salad with goat cheese, shaved beets and ale-poached grapes. This course is paired with New Cleveland Palesner. Course three pairs Platform’s Widow Maker Belgian tripel with black bass, wild mushrooms and saison clam jus. Next up is stout-braised beef short rib with celery root puree, naturally paired with oatmeal-coffee stout. The feast caps off with carrot cake and cream cheese panna cotta sided by the uber-hoppy Hubris.

"We are thrilled to partner with Sterle’s for our first beer dinner," adds Paul Benner of Platform. “We spent a great deal of time collaborating on the perfect pairings. This is going to be freaking incredible!"

Live music will be provided by Ray Flanagan.
