Tacoma Sandwich Special of the Day: Turkey Karmeliet

SUNDAY, JAN. 2 2022: Today’s Peaks & Pints sandwich special is turkey, pesto, olive oil, balsamic glaze, and arugula on French bread.

PAIRING: Tripel Karmeliet

Belgian tripel is a style of beer that has the ability to work with a large range of food groups what with its depth in flavor and complex characteristics: spicy hops, herbal notes, sweet malt flavors, honey and caramel tones, and citric notes. Tripel Karmeliet is one of the best.

Belgium’s Brouwerij Bosteels utilizes a 340-year-old recipe for Tripel Karmeliet using wheat, barley and oats in the brewing. The result is a smooth and sweet Belgian golden ale that can appeal to both serious beer drinkers and folks looking for something cool to bring to a party. Tripel Karmeliet is still brewed to an authentic beer recipe from 1679 originating in the former Carmelite monastery in Dendermonde. The name Tripel Karmeliet refers both to its origin and its in-bottle refermentation. It benefits greatly from secondary fermentation, giving it some nice carbonation and a creamy head of foam upon pouring. The nose of the beer is redolent of spices and grass. Those spices also dominate on the palate, along with all that sweet oat and wheat malt. A restrained hop bitterness balances flavors of toffee and malt.

THING TO DO: Because of COVID, Peaks & Pints isn’t fully staffed and has postponed table service. Please you’re the QR codes at the tables and order from the bartenders behind the bar. Call ahead at (253) 328-5621 for pick-ups. Cheers!

Safety Is Priority Number One

Face masks must be worn when not eating and drinking — especially ordering from the bar or on trips to the restrooms.

One of the most fulfilling aspects of our craft beer and cider bar, bottle shop and restaurant is being a gathering place for the community. It’s a role we do not take for granted, and there are many responsibilities that come along with it — the health and safety of our guests and staff being at the top of the list. As a neighborhood restaurant, we take pride in our commitment to providing a clean, safe, and vibrant environment. Please rest assured that Peaks & Pints has built upon these best practices to follow the COVID-19 protocol provided by the CDC.

We’re open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, but we hope to return to “before times” hours when we’re abole to seat at full capacity.

Hope to see you soon.
