3 Pairings That Will Rock Your BottleRock Festival Weekend
BottleRock 2018 is almost here and we couldn’t be more ready! As Memorial Day Weekend quickly approaches, you’re probably thinking of what you’re going to wear, what you’re going to eat and drink, and who you’re going to see live. But don’t you worry! We are so excited about this year’s lineup that we made a drink, food, and music pairing just for you.
Kick off Friday with electric headliner MUSE, The Farmer’s Wife’s specialty, and a pint or two of a Napa Palisades’ elixir to top it all off! Enjoy Muse’s main classics “Hysteria” and “Starlight” while having a bite of one of The Farmer’s Wife’s finest and tastiest grilled sandwiches.
This restaurant is usually well-known for their honey lavender bacon and cheese sandwich or braised greens, garlic, chili and cheese sandwich. We dare you to try and choose between their various sandwiches. Once Muse starts playing their new single, “Thought Contagion”, don’t forget to enjoy a sip of Napa Palisades’ most refreshing IPA, “Little Loco.” Crisp with notes of citrus and pine on the finish, this beer will be the perfect match to your Rock’n’Roll grilled sandwich.
Saturdays are for the homies. Yes, you heard me! SNOOP DOGG is our stand-out pick for day two. Mix some West Coast rap with delectable bites from Cole’s Chop House paired with Knob Creek bourbon and you have yourself the perfect Saturday combo. While gettin’ jiggy on the dancefloor to chart-topping hits like “Gin & Juice,” “Next episode” or “Young, Wild & Free,” savor one of Cole’s famous foods.
While Snoop Dogg will be jamming to his new album, “Make America Crip Again,” take a moment to enjoy Knob Creek’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Rich with flavors of toasted nuts and grain, this bourbon will divinely match a Cole’s delicacy.
Sunday, fun day!
We’ve all had those “go big or go home” moments in our lives. Well, this year we have decided to go big with the one and only BRUNO MARS (before we’re forced to go home). With an artist like this, we’ve decided to mix in Torc’s foodie flair and Smith Devereux’s winemaking magic, — Voila! Booming this year with his 24K album, Bruno Mars will definitely be giving the 2018 BottleRock crowd some “Finesse” and “24K magic.”
From squash ravioli to scallops, Torc’s exquisite food is usually a delightful surprise to any of their customers. Wouldn’t it be perfect to enjoy Bruno Mars’ songs while having a bite of Torc’s masterpiece? To go along with all that magic, we recommend a pour of the 2016 Smith Devereux Chardonnay. Crisp and refreshing with hints of oak, this wine + Torc’s food bites are the perfect end to a perfect festival weekend. In the words of Bruno, “That’s what [we] like, that’s what [we] like!”
