Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery is thrilled to announce the national rollout of its award-winning Three Pepper Ale. To honor its silver medal win at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival (GABF), the company has launched a chef- and brewer-inspired menu to celebrate its local brewers and chefs. Now through May 17, guests can enjoy Three Pepper Ale with a variety of new menu items created with Rock Bottom’s handcrafted brews.
Rock Bottom’s Three Pepper Ale gets its flavor and bit of heat from house-roasted, anaheim, jalapeno and poblano peppers. The seasonal ale recently claimed a silver medal at the GABF in the Field Beer category by its Arrowhead restaurant. Presented by the Brewers Association, GABF is the largest national beer competition recognizing the most outstanding beers produced in the U.S.
“Guests have had rave reviews about our award-winning Three Pepper Ale and its perfect balance of flavor and subtle spice. We’re thrilled to expand this offering on a national level so that all of our customers can enjoy the ale and have fun pairing it with a variety of our brewer- and chef-inspired appetizers, entrées and even desserts,” said Stan Frankenthaler, chief officer of food, beverage and strategic supply for CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries, Inc.
The Brewer/Chef limited-time menu includes Beer Cheese Soup – a Rock Bottom favorite – as well as:
- Certified Angus Beef Tips – Certified Angus Beef top sirloin tips, grilled and simmered in ale demi-glace made in-house with portobello and button mushrooms, and served over white cheddar mashed potatoes with a crispy and green onion garnish.
