St. Benjamin Brewing is teaming up with Sketch Burger on Tuesday, December 11 for a collaboration that will bring the mighty Fishtown-based three-barrel nano-brewery’s beers to the Girard Ave. burger joint for the evening. Though the menus and beers have not yet been fully finalized, it’s looking now like St. Ben’s brews Transcontinental, a malty amber ale, and Baltic Porter will be pouring, and several of the specials on offer will be prepared with them. Right now, dishes that will be served will include a beer-braised short rib grilled cheese sandwiches with grilled onions; fresh-cut fries with a house-made beer cheese sauce; beer-glazed seitan or beer-glazed chicken with rice; and a chocolate stout cake. St. Benjamin’s owner Timothy Patton, and Sketch owner Phyllis Farquhar will both be on hand to talk about the food, the beers, and how they work together.
