If you’ve ever wondered what it takes to butcher a pig, and who hasn’t, set a course for Churly's Brewpub & Eatery in Mt Eden where the mysterious business of butchery will be revealed. Find out which bits are good for slow-cooking and which should be served pink. And find out if there is more to pork than a good old roast (Spoiler alert: the answer is most definitely yes).
Take a tasty guided lesson with Hannah Miller Childs - A Lady Butcher - and the team at from Behemoth Brewing who together will create a dinner you’ll relish. Sit beside the brewery’s workings, as they share their hoppy expertise; what are the differences between a lager and an IPA while Hannah seam-cuts part of a pig right before your very eyes. And their nose-to-tail ethos means nothing is left to waste, so with each phase of the demonstration, a course of the succulent flavoursome meal (complete with matching beer) will be placed before you. From the head to shoulder, to loin, belly, then leg, this is a truly progressive dinner.
The talented duo will then discuss the reasons for the various pairings as they lead you through your meal until finally, dessert is served. A fascinating interactive dining experience that is both a feast for the palette and a novel culinary adventure where beer is elevated to new heights in diners’ eyes and butchery is exposed as the art form it truly is.
