Sunday August 18

5:00 PM  –  9:00 PM

Sunday, August 18, 5-9 p.m.

Enjoy garden bounty and brews at the Missouri Barn with Chef Michael Foust of Black Sheep + Market. Join Chef Foust, the featured chef-in-residence in our Farm-to-Table garden, for a welcome cocktail and a chat about the farm-to-table movement, then enjoy a three-course, family-style meal using Powell Gardens-grown vegetables and local meats prepared over open flame. The meal will feature beer pairings presented by Michael Crane of Crane Brewing, a brewer-in-residence in our Fermentation Field. He will be joined by “gypsy brewer” Rodney Beagle who has brewed a Lemon Grisette, with fresh lemon balm harvested from the Fermentation Field and real lemon peel.

A Grisette is an extremely rustic, old Belgian style of ale originally brewed for the miners to have as sustenance and refreshment during and after working their shifts. It is light straw in color with a frothy white head. It will be fermented with a combination of both French and Belgian farmhouse yeast so the esters and phenol profile will be similar to that of a Saison. The strength of the beer will be close to 4% giving it a crisp, tart, light, refreshing and slightly lemony flavor.
