Fries meet tender brisket and hot cheese sauce.

There’s no shortage of great bar snacks during Craft Beer & Spirits Week, or we’d never make it through. We borrowed a brisket poutine recipe from Miami Beach gastropub Tongue & Cheek (home of the $2 happy hour beef cheek slider) that pairs just as perfectly with an expertly crafted whiskey cocktail as it does with a huge hoppy beer. Says Chef Jamie DeRosa:

“Who doesn’t like a good cheese fry dish? It’s been on the menu since we first opened and now we’re offering it for brunch. Most guests add it to their beef cheek burger. Pair it with a Goose Island Honker’s Ale or one of our Cracker Jack milkshakes and it’s naptime.”

Like we said, they take care of their diners. Start the brisket in the morning so it’s ready in time for happy hour.
