Devilish eggs.
At last night's Oaktoberfest, Oak Tavern executive chef David Bracha and Esquire beer writer Evan Benn hosted a four-course, beer dinner.

Some dishes were Oak Tavern staples, such as the deviled eggs, pork belly banh mi, and duck pizza. Other offerings were made especially for this brewtastic event: house-made pretzels, cider-brined pork shoulder, and pumpkin-maple cheesecake.

The meal started with caviar-topped deviled eggs and pork belly banh mi with foie gras mousse. They were paired with Hitachino Nest, a Japanese white ale.

Then Bracha served house-made pretzels with a creamy, decadent cambozola cheese. (It tastes like bleu cheese meets brie.) Its richness was balanced by a sour beer, Duchesse de Bourgogne.

Say cheese.
