Rustico Presents Novemberfest
Welcoming of winter with seasonal fare & strong ales on November 10
Based loosely on the German tradition dating back to the 1300’s where villagers would stock up on provisions and seek shelter in their local churches for the wintery weather ahead, Rustico presents Novemberfest, an outdoor block party that plans to prepare and celebrate the move to cooler temperatures replete with at least 40 sensational and seasonal craft brews playing center stage to an arena of good food and good fun.
Beer Director Greg Engert will be showcasing no fewer than 40 different beers on November 10. Guests can expect stellar strong ales like DC Brau’s Ghouls Night Out Quadrupel and Mikkeller Black Hole Imperial Stout; festive holiday brews like Great Lakes Christmas Ale and St. Bernardus Christmas Ale; Fresh-Hop Harvest Ales from Rogue Chatoe and Lost Rhino and of course some esoteric novelties like the Bluejacket, Lost Rhino, Vintage 50 & Hardwood Park Pretty in Pink Saison & DC Brau & Stillwater Middle Name Danger: Catoctin Creek Peach Brandy Barrel-Aged.
Rustico’s chefs have prepared a menu of deliciously hearty dishes to pair with the selection of brews. At Novemberfest, we’ll be offering Grilled Oysters with Charred Herbs, Winter Ale Stew with Beef Cheeks and Sunchokes, Turkey Sausage Pie with Currants, Chestnuts and Sage and Chopped Pork Shoulder Sandwiches. Additionally, Red Apron will be serving their sublime Hot Dogs and Sausages, as well as other pork specialties along with treats from Buzz Bakery to satisfy the sweet tooth.
