Recommendations for Food to Serve at a Homebrew Party?

groxie | May 19, 201001:58 PM     17

In June, we're throwing a huge party to celebrate my graduation. We're anticipating that 40-70 folks will come through from 2pm on, and I want to make sure that I have plenty of grub on hand. We promised to have the grill going, but I can't rely on it for much - it's pretty small.

We're planning on serving a rye ale, a clone of Dogfish Head's 60 Minute IPA, and a hefeweizen - either a chamomile or an orange one. There's a change we'll have a hopped cider, too.

I don't mind doing some prep and cooking the day of the party, but I'd love to be able to leave any frying or baking behind as soon as the party starts. I'm planning on lots of kitchen time in the days before, though.

Since we're putting so much $ into the beer, I'm hoping to keep things fairly inexpensive.

Ideas I've had so far include:
- taco "bar"
- Otsu - Heidi Swanson's sesame-ish noodle dish
- some grain & veggie salads
- one or two tortilla espanolas
- cookies, bars

I'm hoping folks can share some inspiring ideas. I'm going to do my due diligence looking up large crowd recipes, but I'd love some advice highlighting the beers, too!
