CURATED BY KARI COONEY
OWNER & WINE DIRECTOR OF BREWERS FORK
*DELIVERIES BEGIN OCTOBER 8TH*
Enjoying a meal at Brewer’s Fork is like being invited to a party hosted by Kari Cooney. She knows how to take care of her guests and give them what they didn’t know they needed. And Brewer’s Fork is the perfect weeknight spot to get everything you need.
This month we have charcuterie on the brain and all that goes with it. Prosciutto, pickled vegetables, and Kari's favorite (ours too) chicken liver mousse. Add any bottle of wine from this month's box and you have the perfect evening ahead. Spanish Priorat might sound just out of reach normally, but the La Cartuja Kari picked out for this month's box is approachble and so ready to drink. On the other hand, the Michel Delhommeau Muscadet, so refreshing, full of citrus and apple, would be fantastic with a bit of pâté spread across a fresh baguette slice.
'Balance wines that you love and the wines you want people to drink. Curating the wine list was daunting but exciting. You have romantic notions about what you wine list is going to look like, but the reality is that you must give your guests what they want while at the same time challenging them. Achieving success by figuring out what’s important to us and our philosophy and providing guests with exciting wines is really satisfying.' - Kari Cooney
