Burnside Barbecue is partnering with Mucky Duck Brewing Co.
The Kent restaurant is taking over the Green brewery's kitchen starting Wednesday. (June 26)
"They are amazing," brewery co-founder Erica Wathey said Monday. "And there's no great barbecue in Green."
Burnside owners/chefs Phil Everett and Emily Hansford had been looking for a satellite location to pair with their original site at 154 E. Main St. in Kent. Meanwhile, brewery co-founders Joe and Erica Wathey just happened to run across Burnside at the Main Street Kent Art & Wine Festival and fell in love with the food. Joe Wathey approached the business about serving barbecue at Mucky Duck, located at 4019 S. Main St., and the partnership blossomed from there.
The menu will showcase everything from hand-cut fries to pork tacos to brisket to pulled pork. The full menu, which also includes wings and burgers, is available at the brewery's Facebook page: www.facebook.com/MuckyDuckBrewery/.
"Everything that I’m going to be doing here is made from scratch," Everett said. "I am a culinary school graduate and so is Emily. We are classically trained chefs. We make everything from scratch from brining to our own rubs to making our own pickles. If I can make it from scratch, I do it."
Oh, and in case you're wondering, the popular duck wings will be on the menu.
