Seattle, WA – Chances are strong that if you are a fan of beer, wine, cider, or spirits; you’re also a fan of the food pairing. To most the perfect pairing is a chardonnay, pinot, or sauvignon; interlaced with a side of pasta, white fish, or steak. If you aren’t a fan of vino and instead crave the satisfaction derived from an IPA, Porter, or Flanders Red; we have another pub to suggest; The Gastropod.
Although technically not yet a reality, we wanted to let you know that Epic Ales’ owner and brewer Cody Morris along with Travis Kukull are opening a pub together. And what better way to show you what is coming than with a mini preview courtesy of the Epic Ales taproom starting this Saturday (from 12PM to 6PM).
“Join Cody and Travis as they preview "The Gastropod." The Gastropod is a brewpub that Cody and Travis will soon open. Until then every Saturday they will preview their collaboration in the upstairs space above the brewery.” -source, Epic Ales’ Facebook page
This week Chef Travis will be featuring three dishes paired against two of Epic Ales’ beers. The first dish is bacon and egg fried rice paired against Epic Ales’ Solar Trans Amplifier. If this isn’t to you're liking you might try course number 2, a savory basil crepes with roasted peaches, summer corn and smoked creme fraiche; paired against La Mesa Negra. Cost for either course and the paired beer is $7 or if you are feeling hungry then consider both dishes (and beers) for $12.
The brewery would also like to remind you of the following …

Epic Ales was started in the early 21st century by self admitted mad-man Cody Morris.
Like many breweries, it all started with the first batch of homebrew. Brewer, Cody Morris, was immediately spellbound by the limitless possibilities that beer could be. He spent over two years working at a homebrew shop, learning, practicing and obsessing over the magic of brewing. While he was perfecting his craft, Cody became somewhat of a foodie, and currently works with specialty foods, always thinking of new flavor combinations to brew up [more] –source, Epic Ales
