What to eat while you drink at Ska

One perk of being a chef working on the same site as a brewery is easy access to beer – for cooking ... and personal use. The Container of Food chef Jeremy Storm and his team get to experiment with Ska’s flagship and modified brews, incorporating them into such recipes as marinades, vinaigrettes and beer-battered fried pickles.
“The leap into cooking with beer – if folks have played with wine in the past, it’s very similar,” Storm said. The only limitation is the potential bitterness that can develop if the beer is added to a recipe too early. Otherwise, “it’s a pretty fun time to be cooking with beer,” he said.
“We’re a brewery. We’re here to have fun. We want people to have fun and the food needs to reflect that just like our beers do,” he said. “There is no pretension in what we are doing.”
Here are three Ska brew and Container dish pairings suggested by Storm:
Grilled pineapple and prosciutto pizza with True Blonde AleThis brick-oven pizza is made with marinara, green chile, jalapeño and four kinds of cheese. The mildly sweet ale complements the prosciutto and tropical fruit while the dry finish cuts the fat and cleanses the palate to encourage another bite (or swig).
Jerk chicken sandwich with Modus Hoperandi IPAThe spicy, bold flavor of this sandwich made with bacon jam, roasted jalapeño and curry carrot relish, avocado and red onion requires a strong-flavored beer to go with it. Modus Hoperandi provides enough malt backbone and hoppy bitterness to do so, while each interact with the spice in different ways. The bitterness of the hops enhances the heat where the sweetness of the malt cuts it.
Spinach salad with Rue B. Soho This refreshing grapefruit lager is a suitable brew to pair with a refreshing meal such as spinach salad made with candied walnuts, dried cranberries, tomato, feta cheese and honey balsamic vinaigrette. Easy drinking for easy eating.

Many of the menu items at the Container incorporate Ska beers in one way or another. The Steel Toe Stout, for instance, is an ingredient in a barbecue sauce.
