Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at the Beard House.
Coastal Texas Flavors and Microbrews, 7:00 P.M.
Jeff Balfour and Brewmaster Les Locke Jr., Southerleigh, San Antonio
When most people think of “Texan cuisine,” brisket, burnt ends, and bowls of chili are likely to be the first things that come to mind. But the Lone Star State also contains a sizable coast on the Gulf of Mexico, offering up a cornucopia of sea-dwelling delicacies to rival its pitmasters’s finest. Set in the historic former home of the Pearl Brewery, San Antonio’s Southerleigh combines modern coastal cuisine, Southern comfort fare, and housemade craft beers. Join us at the Beard House as chef Jeff Balfour and brewmaster Les Locke Jr. treat guests to a wide-ranging menu that runs from reel to ranch, with dishes such as Chilled Gulf Oysters with Charred Spring Onions and Barbecue Mignonette; Crispy Gulf Snapper Throats with Dijon–Lemon Rémoulade and Tender Lettuces; and Grilled South Texas Antelope Loin with Roasted Duck Ravioli and Smoked Tomatoes, all paired with robust beers that showcase the versatility of the Texan kitchen and brewery.
