"Cupid is Stupid - Swipe Left" at City Tap House

City Tap House, Fort Point’s newest neighborhood pub, is making a bold statement this Valentine’s Day weekend: “Cupid is Stupid – Swipe Left.” On February 11 and 12, this beer paradise will be a refuge for singles trying to escape the cloying, sticky-sweet sentiments of this Hallmark holiday by breaking it down to the basics: good beer, even better food. (Note: City Tap does not discriminate against lovebirds; their only requirement is that you and yours leave your diets at the door on these two nights.) 

While couples elsewhere are busy popping bubbly, meeting in the middle over a strand of spaghetti and sharing bites from a chocolate fountain, City Tap House will be dishing out a collection of specials that a proper lady or gentlemen would not normally order on a first date. These rich, overly indulgent creations are sure to satisfy the stomachs of the happily unattached (and attached) and each comes with a suggested suds pairing that has been hand-selected by City Tap’s resident beer man, brand director Andy Farrell:

Waffle Fry Short Rib Gravy Poutine ($12) - Vermont cheddar curds and chives
Suggested Pairing: Harpoon Winter Warmer, a malty spiced ale

Chicken & Waffles ($19) – fried chicken, buttermilk waffle, honey-thyme
butter, molasses syrup and red pepper jam
Suggested Pairings: Stoneface Porter, with coffee notes, & Night Shift The 87, a bright tropical hopped IPA

Fish & Chips ($23) – Atlantic cod with triple-cooked chips, tartar sauce, ketchup and lemon
Suggested Pairing: Firestone Walker Pivo Pils, a bright crisp pilsner

Filet Mignon ($35) – truffle butter, asparagus and foie gras toasties
Suggested Pairings: Brooklyn Lager, a conservative balanced full-bodied lager, & Duchesse de Bourgogne, an assertive, tart and acidic Flemish red

Fried Banana Split ($10) – banana spring roll with chocolate, vanilla and strawberry gelato topped with elderflower strawberries, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and a cherry on top
Suggested Pairing: Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier, a floral and spiced Hefeweizen

Peanut Butter Cake ($10) – chocolate gelato and crushed peanuts
Suggested Pairing: Sam Adams Nitro Stout Coffee, a roasty and dark stout
