The poor old ocean is having a bit of a rough time of it, what with all the pollution and dragnets and other out-of-sight skullduggery, so any effort to shine a light on the general mistreatment and its effects is surely a welcome one.
To wit, Stomping Ground has teamed up with the profit-for-purpose organisation One Fish Two Fish for a beer dinner deigned to make you think, specifically: if you're going to eat seafood, do it in a way that's sustainable.
So, over a three course meal – with beers to match, of course – you'll get to appreciate the minor miracle that is fish and hopefully make some changes to help ensure we can keep enjoying them for the foreseeable future. And if nothing else, the menu looks damn delicious:
Port Lincoln Sardines, smoked chickpea, pickled shallot, herb oil
Chargrilled Corner Inlet Garfish, preserved lemon, sea herbs, fried salt bush
Five grain salad, pomegranate, almond, pistachio and labneh
Fattoush salad, heritage tomatoes, cucumber, radish and caramelised dressing
Garlic roasted Kipfler potatoes and rosemary salt
Capra Sardo (Sardinia, Italy), Muscatels, quince, candied walnuts and seaweed lavosh
-Early Grey Amber Ale
-Belgian Blonde Ale
-Tiramisu Nitro Stout
