Getting Down With Doughnuts

Getting Down With Doughnuts

We all have a sweet tooth and many of us look for ways to satisfy that craving with something other than the everyday candy bar. It’s in cases like this that we recommend the doughnut. Remember them as a kid? They were sugary, sweet, creamy, velvety, doughy, but oh so darn good. Well, the good news is that you’ve grown up, and the doughnut has too. San Antonio is home to a growing number of unique doughnut shops that offer more than the average chain. We’re talking about flavor combinations you never thought possible, in shapes and colors never seen before. Get ready to jump on the train to flavor town!

On May 20th San Antonio will play host to A Doughnut Social, which will pair craft beers with artisan doughnuts. You read that right, beer and doughnuts. Don’t knock it till you try it, because some of the bests that San Antonio has to offer are coming together to make the matches. For just $25 you can experience the following pairings: 

  • Caramelized White Chocolate Old-Fashioned Doughnut w/ Cherry Compote & Blood Orange Radler (Karbach Brew Co.)
  • Squared Brioche Doughnut w/ Rose Hips, Raspberry, and Pistachio & Witbier / Belgian-Style White Ale (Community Beer Co.)
  • Milk Chocolate Cake Doughnut w/Strawberry, Black Pepper, and Marshmallows & 1836 / A Copper Ale (Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co.)
These aren’t your grandma’s doughnuts. These creations come from Pastry Chef Chris Jara and GS1221, and if you want to get more information leading up to this event be sure to follow @GS1221tx + @The Down Market on Instagram to follow the story leading up to this epic event!
