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 led by Chef Ben Wright and 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 frequently due to availability of ingredients. We ask for patience if our weekly menu in the taproom isn’t exactly what’s included here.

Nibbles:

The Adult Lunchable charcuterie board changes seasonally with a selection of artisanal meats, local cheeses, and a fresh, toasted Bossy Bakers mini baguette 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:

Pulled Pork Plate, our Texas-style pulled pork accompanied by a King’s Hawaiian roll and pickled vegetables. House-smoked by aspiring pitmaster John Odom, on our team. (Sides served a-la-carte.)

BBQ Mac & Cheese Bowl, our house-smoked Texas-style BBQ served on top of our gouda & sharp cheddar mac & cheese. (Add our pineapple slaw or kimchi for a fun twist!)

Censored BBQ Slider with house-smoked Texas-style BBQ and pineapple cabbage slaw served on a sweet Hawaiian roll. Preparing this slider makes the taproom smell sooo yummy!

Sammies:

Gooey Greatness Grilled Cheese with muenster, havarti and smoked gouda, local green apples, and house-pickled red onion on sourdough bread. Our homemade pepper jelly is on the side for dipping!

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

Grandma Josephine’s Classic Italian Sub with pepperoni, soppressata, genoa salami and provolone on a hoagie roll. Served cold and complemented with our homemade Italian dressing and pickled red onions, as well as peppadews and crisp iceberg lettuce. Our grandma would be proud!

Guess What? Chicken Butt! Beer Can Chicken Salad Slider, a light chicken salad made with beer-can-grilled chicken, served with lush lettuce on a soft potato roll. The chicken is from Iva, SC-based Johnson Creek Farm. Our salad is a blend of chicken, Greek yogurt, grapes, pepitas and flavorful spices and herbs.

Sassy Sides:

Kimcheezy 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. 

Pineapple Slaw,
 a crunchy blend of cabbage, carrot and pineapple tossed in a light, creamy dressing. 

Tommy Pickles, our spunky, house-made pickled cucumber salad.

Carolina Kettle Chips from Raleigh, NC and Zapps New Orleans-style kettle chips.

BBQ or 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.

Taco Tuesdays:

Tuesdays from 4-8:30 p.m., our in-house tiny taco menu is available, along with a limited regular food menu. Ranging from pulled chicken, mojo pork, brisket, and black bean tacos, along with elote salad and charro beans as sides. Offerings can change frequently.
