It makes total sense that a brewery dedicated to food-focused brews and an award-winning gastropub that — arguably — changed Orlando's dining scene forever would join forces.
The monthly pig roast at the Ravenous Pig
, a favorite pastime among pork purists, will be paired with a tap takeover by Funky Buddha
, one of the state's most celebrated breweries out of Ft. Lauderdale. Both signature and seasonal brews will be available from the SoFla sudser, and pints will be available for $5 each.
Since Saturday, May 6, is also Derby Day, anyone coming to the roast in dapper "Derby attire" will also be privy to $6 mint juleps.
This month, the roast plate ($18) will feature whole-hog smoked pork, spare ribs, BBQ gastrique, black-eyed peas, collard greens and cornbread. Plus, a mini chocolate cupcake for dessert. A for-two option, the "Chef's Board" will feature the roast plate plus smoked brisket and chicken with mustard BBQ sauce ($50).
