Brewer's Cabinet Launches Porcini Mushroom Baltic Porter This Valentine's Day

Brewer's Cabinet Celebrates the Love and Art of Collaboration with it's first featured seasonal beer of the Chef companies annual Series.

​What goes better with porter than porcini mushrooms? If you’re speaking with Chris Nealon, executive head chef of Montrêaux Golf & Country Club, then the answer is, “Absolutely nothing!” Brewer’s Cabinet is excited to bring back the Chef Series beer collaboration this month.

The popular Chef Series began in 2016, where top chefs from renowned Reno restaurants devise a food-friendly beer brewed by Eric Ramin, brewmaster at Brewer’s Cabinet. The original concoctions often feature signature flavor profiles and pairings that participating culinary experts are known for.

The first featured brew starting the 2017 series is Nealon’s brainchild, dubbed “Little Phat Pig Baltic Porter,” combines imperial porter infused with porcini mushrooms from the Pacific Northwest.

I was in Oregon for six years and one of my favorite foods to 'hunt' were the delicious, full-bodied porcini mushrooms. I would find them on walks in the woods and around my property, Nealon recalled. Porter is my favorite beer style to pair with and drink. It's a match made in beer-loving heaven.
