Shanahan's Creole Restaurant and Irish Bar in Forest Park is cooking with beer this weekend—quite literally.
The weekend's beer-centric menu features a range of hearty items designed to tempt you taste buds and make your winter weary soul happy.
"It's January, so we're focusing on hearty dishes," said Randy Toledano, manager at Shanahan's. "We've got some interesting beers in this month."
In addition to grabbing one of a variety of microbrews, Shanahan's is adding beer to pretty much all of it's weekend Beerfest menu options.
For example, the cooks are serving up Corona beer battered shrimp, brown ale brined chicken wings with a Hacker Pschorr honey mustard sauce and Hacker Pschorr marinated grilled bratwurst.
They're also mixing in some Harp with their battered fish, and frying up garlic French fries with Abita and ladling out Guinness gravy.
I think it's safe to say that all these things go with a cold one.
The menu is only available for a limited time. Grab it this weekend, Jan. 25-27.
