Allagash Brewing Company at Akasha

Akasha Restaurant in Culver City is no stranger to beer dinners. Their last one with Unibrou was a sold-out success and this upcoming one next week is sure to be just as popular as it will pair Allagash beers with hearty Southern fare. Allagash beer maker Rob Tod and chef Akasha Richmond have created a delightful-sounding three-course menu ($45 a person).

Beer pairing dinner menu:

  • First: Cajun Shrimp with Allagash BBQ sauce, late season creamed corn, fried okra, buttermilk biscuits and cornbread paired with Allagash Curieux Barrel Aged Beer

  • Main: Fried Chicken with sour cream mashed potatoes, pan gravy, Mud Creek Ranch spicy and chunky apple sauce paired with Allagash White Wheat Beer

  • On the Table for Sharing: Macaroni & Cheese, Beer Braised Mustard & Collard Greens, Coleslaw with Celery Seed Dressing, Housemade Pickles

  • Dessert: Chocolate – Pecan Pie and Sweet Cream Ice Cream paired with Allagash Black Belgian Style Stout

Reservations required. Call (310) 845-1700.
