Inspired by onsite food trailer, St Elmo Brewing releases Austin’s first Soursop beer today, Friday, October 13th. Appropriately named “Chef”, the beer is made with a puree from Oregon Fruit Products, who created their very first Soursop puree in collaboration with St Elmo head brewer Bryan Winslow who initially reached out with the idea.
Initially influenced by chef Bricker, Winslow, he notes –
“The beer is designed to showcase this delicious fruit, Soursop, that the named is truck after. The beer’s tart, light body and mellow hop profile make a sturdy pedestal for the Soursop to shine. It’s a great example of how beer can be food, and a brewer can find inspiration from many avenues.”
Chef Teddy Bricker also created a special dish to pair with the beer release, only available TODAY in liminted quantity – Soursop Jerk Chicken, Coconut Rice and Pigeon Peas, Soursop Pickled Peppers, $13.
Also taking place this month, is the brewery’s Oktoberfest Party on Sunday, October 22, from 12-8pm. Guests may enjoy German Biergarten games, a stein hoist, hammerschlagen, live polka music, and 8 German style beers on tap. Make sure to get a good beer base before indulging in the multitude of brews with Soursop’s special German inspired menu for the day including various types of Sausage, Schweinhaxe/Pork Knuckle, Sauerkraut, Schlachteplatte, German Potato salad, Fried Sardines, and Schnitzel.
