Durham, N.C. — Fullsteam brewery is rolling out its first phase of its kitchen on Friday.
Chef Kyle McKnight has developed a menu of small plates and bar snacks that pair well with the beer. The menu, which will be available from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. will include smoked paprika tortellini, braised pork belly, coastal poached shrimp, sorghum dumplings and Working Man's Crunch( cola-glazed caramel popcorn, peanuts, chocolate) and Paychex snack mixes, according to Fullsteam's website.
In February, owner Sean Lily Wilson announced that the Durham brewery would be building a kitchen.
"Though our food concept will emphasize local and seasonal, expect a few crowd-pleasers. We’re a bar, after all. So while you’ll see some fancy “farm’s edge” leaning specials, our menu will emphasize bar snacks, bullies (our savory hand pies), and our take on the classic meat-and-three. Just as we aim to keep Fullsteam comfortable yet innovative, our food will push new boundaries…without venturing too far into preciousness. It’s beer. It’s food. It’s a neighborhood hangout," Wilson wrote on the brewery's website.
