BBQ and Beer Guide: Pair M&M BBQ with the perfect DBCO. Beers!

Dorchester Brewing Company has recently expanded its operation to include one of Dorchester’s finest BBQ establishments, M&M BBQ. As a Dorchester staple, it was an easy decision to make room for a kitchen and welcome the M&M BBQ staff in order to provide our beer drinkers exceptional dining options while at the brewery. 

We wanted to provide the readers of our blog an article on some of the best ways to pair our beers with the great menu M&M BBQ has to offer.

*Since the beers we have on tap are always in rotation, this blog while feature beer ‘styles’ as opposed to specific brands brewed in house. Ask your server about the style of beers we have on tap while ordering for the best paring. DBco. Employees have become top customers of M&M BBQ, so they will know! 

Smoked Chicken

Smoked chicken is a BBQ classic. A lighter, leaner meat than pork ribs or pulled shoulder, considering lighter beers or libations tends to bode well for pairings. We recommend light pilsners, blonde ales, and even light ciders, which are now available at Dorchester Brewing. These pairings hold true regardless of additional sauce you may order on top off or on the side of your smokey, delicious chicken.

If you are drinking a pilsner, blonde ale, or light cider consider ordering the ‘Dot Special’ (Chicken Wings), New Market Square Sandwich (Fried Chicken Sandwich) , or the BBQ Chicken platter!

Ribs & Pulled Pork

With Ribs and Pulled pork, one needs to consider the sauce to which will be applied. If you order the ribs dry, IPA’s, Brown Ales, Pilsner, and even Blonde ales will pair nicely with the smokey meat flavor. M&M BBQ offers a traditional BBQ sauce, which we think pairs the best with brown ales, pilsners, and even blonde ales.

If you are drinking a Brown Ale, Pilsner, or Blonde Ale consider order M&M’s Bone-In BBQ Platter(1/2 rack of pork ribs, 1/2 smoked chicken and cornbread) , The Smokers Club Platter(Pulled pork, beef brisket and beer braised brats over sauerkraut with butter pickles, coleslaw and cornbread), or the Columbia Road Sandwich (Smoked pulled pork topped with sweet pickled red cabbage)! 

Sausages

When ordering a beer with sausage, one has to consider a number of variables. Sausages are part of numerous cultures, so the beer you would pair with a German Bratwurst Sausage would most likely differ from a Cajun Andouille Sausage, for example. M&M BBQ offers bratwurst sausage which complements the BBQ sauce M&M makes in house. Sours, IPA’s and even Rauchbier’s tends to accentuate the spices and smokiness found in both the sausage and the sauce. Like the smoked chicken, we also recommend lighter hard ciders as they are crisp and refreshing!

The ‘Mass Ave’

If you are drinking a Sour, IPA, or Rauchbier consider ordering the ‘Mass Ave’ (Bratwurst & sauerkraut braised in DBco’s V1 Double IPA, served with honey BBQ mustard) or the Smokers Club Platter (Pulled pork, beef brisket and beer braised brats over sauerkraut with butter pickles, coleslaw and cornbread)

Fried Chicken

Fried chicken is an M&M BBQ favorite and for a good reason. Owners Geo Lambert has been refining and perfecting M&M’s fried chicken recipe since taking over in 2009 to the point Bostonians from all over travel to Dorchester to purchase an order. Fried Chicken is salted to perfection, which calls for something to quench one’s thirst. Pilsners, IPA’s, and Blonde Ales are all styles we would recommend to go with M&M’s fried chicken which can be ordered over salad or as the New Market Sandwich. 

M&M BBQ at Dorchester Brewing Company

Not only are we now home to Dorchester’s favorite BBQ spot, but we have also expanded our taproom and built a one-of-a-kind rooftop patio & 4-season, rooftop ‘Hopservatory’.

Meet Our Team: Associate General Manager, Cody Grabowski

When we were opening up our expanded space and moving the Tap Room from about 2,000 square feet to over 9,000 square feet, we knew we’d need to call in the big guns. For us, that included expanding our current staff and bringing in an Associate General Manager to oversee the entire Tap Room. With that, we are beyond excited to have Cody Grabowski join our team and take helm a few months back to officially open our new space. If you’ve spent any time in the Tap Room recently, you’ve probably met him already, but today we’re officially introducing you to Cody. Read on to learn more:

Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. I have never moved out of the state, but I have moved around a lot and have resided in Dorchester for the past 12 years. I love it here! I am so happy to be a part of Boston. It just feels like home. I like to do a lot of things which include dining out, watching movies, taking care of my dog Quinn, and traveling whenever possible. When it comes to the weekends, you will find me at work. That is one thing that I like about this industry, on my end. My “weekends” fall  into the middle of the week, which I find to be a bit more relaxing.

How did you get into craft beer and bartending/managing?

I have a passion for knowledge when it comes to food and beverages. I try to put myself out there to try new things and learn as much as I can. I was working recently down the street where we were trying to bring in a lot more craft beers. We were carrying Dorchester Brewing Company’s V1 Double IPA and Clapp’s Cream Ale already, but I was able to start to try to more beer as time went on, as our beer list was in constant rotation. It got me excited about tasting different beers I have not had before.

What do you like best about the industry and working in a brewery?

I have always worked in the hospitality industry, from serving to bartending, to managing. I love people. I love to make sure that people have a great experience and really enjoy themselves. When an opportunity opened up at Dorchester Brewing Company, I immediately thought that this could be such a great new adventure, and I am very happy that I have been able to be apart of such a great team!  

Favorite part of your job?

The team! Being able to work together makes having a super fast paced job easier, because you know that everyone has your back. 

Favorite beer style?

I’d say I have a couple. I love a good porter and when I want something completely different, I’ll take a good sour.
