Last night, an exclusive group from Rhode Island Monthly's 401 Insiders Club gathered to celebrate our February 2017 beer issue at Bucket Brewery in Pawtucket. Local beer fans mingled in the intimate space amongst the fermenters and other brewing equipment while sipping flights of six brews, feasting on food from Citizen Wing and playing games like Jenga and Battleship.
Bucket poured some of its most popular brews, including my favorite, the Prudence and Patience Rosehip Gose, which made me wistful for breezy summer days with the aroma of beach roses and salty sea air. Other great beers included the Black Goat of the Woods, an Irish milk stout with a hint of cinnamon and ginger; the 33rd Inning Red Rye Lager; the famous Pawtucket Pail Ale, and a brand spanking new brew featuring ginger.
Citizen Wing food truck was also on site serving tasty food that paired perfectly with Bucket's beers. In fact, beer was used as an ingredient in many of the sauces and brines. On the menu was beer-brined wings, chicken and waffles with syrup made with Bucket Brewery's Black Goat of the Woods stout and pork belly and waffles with a cherry stout compote and Rhode Island maple syrup.
