Nothing entices the senses quite like the perfect beer and food pairing. Envision the ideal melding of flavors, a sensual dance of aromas, flavors and colors from plate and pint alike.

At Fireforge Crafted Beer, we love to drink beer with food. That’s why we’ve built an on-site prep kitchen for making sandwiches, shareable snacks,  sides, desserts and even house-smoked Texas-style BBQ! Our culinary team is mainly made of passionate home cooks from within the Fireforge staff.

Many of our beers are inspired by favorite foods, nostalgic dishes and culinary curiosities sampled on our many travels. We give our relationships with vendors as much importance as our relationship with the food itself, always seeking to bring you the best in locally-sourced ingredients when possible.

Please note: Our menu is subject to change due to availability of ingredients. We ask for patience if our weekly menu in the taproom isn’t exactly what’s included here.

Nibbles:

Charcuterie & Cheese Board changes seasonally with a selection of artisanal meats, local cheeses, and lavash accompanied with house-made spreadables and palate cleansers. {Please note: our items can change due to availability within the season.}

Toasted Soft Pretzels from Pawleys Island-based ElJay Pretzels with our house-made pimento beer cheese and brown mustard.

House-Smoked BBQ:

John’s Texas-Style BBQ Plate, our Texas-style pulled pork accompanied by a potato roll, pickled vegetables & two sides. House-smoked by aspiring pitmaster John Odom, on our team. House-made sauces available by request.

BBQ Mac & Cheese Bowl, our house-smoked Texas-style BBQ served on top of our gouda & sharp cheddar mac & cheese, drizzled with sweet BBQ sauce and cheesy bread crumbs. (Add our red cabbage slaw or kimchi for a fun twist!)

BBQ Sliders with our BBQ and red cabbage slaw served on a potato roll. Preparing this slider makes the taproom smell sooo yummy!

Sammies:

Three Cheese Grilled Cheese with muenster, havarti and smoked gouda on sourdough bread. Our homemade pepper jelly is on the side for dipping!

Reuben Sammie with a generous heap of tender pastrami, Swiss cheese, Fireforge sauerkraut and house-made 1000 Island Dressing on rye bread.

Club Fireforge, a summer sammie favorite: Pepper Mill turkey, Black Forest ham, lacey Swiss cheese, avocado, tomato, alfalfa sprouts and our Mendocino mustard on toasted multi-grain bread.

Kimchi Melt, an “adult” grilled cheese with Port Salut and house-made kimchi on sourdough. Served with our sweet & spicy kimchi honey for dipping.

Sassy Sides:

Kimchi Mac & Cheese is the marriage of creamy smoked gouda and sharp cheddar cheese smothering nostalgic shell pasta, then topped with our tangy, slightly spicy kimchi. 

Collard Greens,
slow cooked and braised with Benton’s bacon. 

Red Cabbage Slaw, a crunchy blend of red cabbage, carrot and pepitas tossed in house-made agave vinaigrette.

Tommy Pickles, our spunky, house-made pickled cucumbers.

Zapps New Orleans-style kettle chips.

BBQ, Plain Mac & Cheese Kimchi are also available as sides.

Desserts: 

Cheesecake or Sweet Treat of the Week made in-house. Yes, beer and cheesecake go exceptionally well together, especially IPAs. If cheesecake is unavailable, ask about our sweet treat of the week, ranging from playful “brookie” bars to seasonally-inspired bread pudding.
