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 and desserts. 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:

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

Mac & Cheese & Collards Bowl, our gouda & sharp cheddar mac & cheese, topped with collards and drizzled with sweet BBQ sauce and cheesy bread crumbs. (Add our red cabbage slaw or kimchi for a fun twist!)

Sammies:

Three Cheese Grilled Cheese with muenster, havarti and smoked gouda on sourdough bread. Our homemade red 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.

Rachel Sammie with a generous heap of Pepper Mill turkey, Swiss cheese, red cabbage slaw 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.

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.

Plain Mac & Cheese and 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.
