This Thursday, January 23 from 5 to 10 pm, Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery is having their debut event of the celebration of the much-anticipated National Pie Day. They will be serving pies from Sous Chef and Pastry Chef Melissa Stout-Greiner in true brewpub fashion with beer pairings.

more people will come if they think there’s punch and pie”.as Cartman on South Park says. So throughout the evening, Barren Hill Tavern will offer four crafted desserts with optional beer pairings and one pie paired with Barren Hill’s signature cocktail Barren Hill Punch.

Stout-Greiner’s desserts for National Pie Day will be served a la carte with optional beverage pairings.

  • Chocolate Cointreau Pie paired with Barren Hill Punch (brandy, port, spice)
  • Shaker Lemon Pie paired with Barren Hill Belgian Golden (a golden ale balanced by hops, sweet malts, and spicy Belgian yeast)
  • Frozen Banana Split Pie with Barren Hill West Coast Oats (hoppy oatmeal stout, smooth, rich roasted malts, notes of chocolate, dark fruit, hint of licorice)
  • Peanut Butter Tart with DuClaw Sweet Baby Jesus (a chocolate peanut butter porter)
  • Rum Raisin Apple Crumb Pie with Southern Tier Pumking (a seasonal release that pairs well with desserts)

Being a pastry chef at a brewpub gives me opportunities for experimentation with beer pairings that a traditional pastry chef wouldn’t typically have access to,” says Stout-Greiner. “I’ve always enjoyed watching the customers respond to unique pairings and celebrating National Pie Day with beer is a great way to expand the dessert/beer connection. “

This is the first of many beer-centric events to hit Barren Hill Tavern with many more events to come to the new Lafayette Hill brewpub.
