Wednesday, July 4th marked the launch of the much-anticipated Wild Lager Himalayas by Heineken® with a celebration of "all things wild" in the luxurious setting of The Stella, Rathmines.
To celebrate the launch of Wild Lager Himalayas (a lager with fresh hints of citrus and a full malt character), HEINEKEN Ireland partnered with one of Ireland’s most exciting and dynamic chefs, Michelin Star winner JP McMahon to create The Wild Lager Menu - a four dish tasting menu inspired by each lager’s country of origin.
The menu consisted of wild and foraged Irish produce and ingredients, including monkfish with asparagus and woodroof; goat’s curd with nettles and dandelion oil; rib-eye steak with wild garlic pesto and roasted hazelnuts, as well as wild Irish mussels from Galway Bay with dillisk.
Foodies will be happy to hear that these dishes can be enjoyed at various events this summer including The Galway Arts Festival and The Big Grill in Dublin.
Speaking on the partnership, JP McMahon commented: “Wild Lager by Heineken® is a totally new beer style with unique flavours that pair perfectly with the wild flavours of real Irish produce. Creating The Wild Lager Menu was a journey of discovery, a culinary adventure of sorts; I'm looking forward to sharing the dishes and both Wild Lagers with the Irish public throughout the summer. It's going to be wild."
