Our spotlight of pork-and-liquor/beer pairings we experience while dining out …

The pork: A decadent maple-glazed pork belly served at Cook Hall’s recent Beer Vs. Whiskey Dinner.

The pairing: Pairings, actually — the event matched each entree with a brew and a whiskey, for diners to pick a “winner.” This course was married with a Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee — a heady stout — and Jim Beam Signature Craft, an ultra-premium bourbon. Jerry and I both favored the smooth and buttery Beam; for me, it underscored the velvety marbling of the succulent slab of meat and pleasantly complemented the sweetness from the maple. We only wish the pork belly was a menu regular!
