Craft Beer Hoppy Hour, our limited-run series of beer and food pairings at Phoenica's MKT Bar downtown, were so well-attended this past winter that we've brought them back once again by popular demand.
Our first round of Craft Beer Hoppy Hour kicks off this Friday, April 19 at 4 p.m. and runs through 7 p.m., featuring beers from Southern Star Brewery and food to go with them. Flights are $10 for four beers and come with a food pairing of four dishes from MKT Bar. But even though both the beers and the food are technically "samples," there's nothing sample-sized about the portions you get. Again, and I stress, for only $10. It's hands-down the best dinner deal in town this Friday or any other.
In addition, we'll be hosting a Meet the Brewer evening the same night, where you can come out and chat with the Southern Star brewmasters over pints and maybe even find out what the Conroe brewery's next seasonal offering will be.
Most other draft beers will be only $4 a pint during Hoppy Hour, and for those who aren't hop-heads, MKT Bar will also be offering $5 glasses of wine. Music will be provided by Second Lovers throughout Hoppy Hour, with DJ iPod Ammo picking up the tracks afterward from 7 to 10 p.m., so why not make a night of it?
We plan to keep the party going at MKT Bar with Craft Beer Hoppy Hour on the third Friday of every month, so stay tuned for May's featured brewery. In the meantime, come out and toast local beer with us this Friday after work. It'll be the best $7 you spend all week.
