I can’t believe Jacob’s Pickles has been around for about a year and I only just made it there for the first time last night—especially considering pickles and beer are two of my desert-island treats. And it still wouldn’t have been on my radar had it not been for the generous invite from the Jacob’s PR/Marketing team to a sour beer/pickle pairing dinner. And when I heard the name Jacob’s Pickles, I just pictured a storefront with a guy in a stained apron next to a giant barrel. But not this is a full-on sit-down restaurant complete with exposed-brick and all the usual acoutrements that shout, “Come hither, foodie!”
We had an eight-course menu, each paired with a specific beer somewhere on the sour spectrum.
