Food trucks!  Yay!

Beer! Yay!

Put them both together and you have the 2nd Annual Food Truck Feast being put on by 4 Hands Brewing and Feast Magazine. This event which combines beer with food being purchased from a vehicle that can move will take place this Saturday, October 20th from 12PM to 8PM.

But, we’re here for the beer, so what will get your lazy butt of your couch to visit 4 Hands this Saturday? They’ll also be debuting an Amarillo Pale Ale in cask on Saturday. But you’ll also be witness to the release of their newest collaboration: the Smoked Pigasus. This beer is a rye smoked maple porter that was made with the help of Mike Emerson from Pappy’s Smokehouse.

Here’s a description of the beer:

Smoked Pigasus is a robust and delicious porter brewed with rye, smoked malt, and maple syrup. The maple provides a perfect balance for the smoked malt. Smoked Piagasus pours a deep mahogany with aromas of chocolate, smoke, and caramel.

Here’s the food trucks that will be serving up some food:

Come on out on Saturday to enjoy the mobile food serving experience and also to try some of the awesome beer made by 4 Hands.

Without a doubt, we have some some restaurants in town that have quickly become institutions. I doubt many among us wouldn’t quickly and happily recommend Pappy’s Smokehouse, Pi Pizzeria, or Bailey’s Chocolate Bar to out of town visitors.   These are new classics here in our area.

So, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that 4 Hands Brewing Company would want to work with the owners of these restaurants to create some new and exciting collaborations. The start of these collaborations began with PiPA, a new American Pale Ale created exclusively for Pi Pizzeria.

Next up after that is a Smoked Rye Porter brewed with malt that will be smoked (alongside a few racks of ribs) by Mike Emerson of Pappy’s Smokehouse.  This beer, named the Smoked Pigasus, will be available this September along with a trio of candied bacon created by Kakao Chocolate, Salume Beddu, and The Shaved Duck.

To round out the new beers this fall, 4 Hands will work with Dave Bailey, owner of the aforementioned Bailey’s Chocolate Bar, and also Bailey’s Range, Bridge, and Rooster to create a beer featuring sweet potatoes, vanilla beands, nutmeg, and all spice. Dave Bailey has offered up his commissary kitchen to help bake the 300lbs of sweet potatoes that will be needed for this fall seasonal.

With creative new beers like these, there is no doubt that 4 Hands will become a new classic as well.
