The featured brewery for tonight's Thirsty Thursday event (starting at 4 p.m. and ending whenever it ends) at the downtown Central BBQ is Yazoo. Pints of the brewery's Gerst (made using one of Tennessee's oldest beer recipe) are $3. Twenty-two-ounce bombers of the limited edition 10-Year IPA will also be available.
And, maybe just maybe, Central BBQ will be offering up its BBQ Pork Poutine as one of its complimentary "bar bites."
Most certainly, there will be Pork Butt Sloppy Joes (using pork that has been breaded, fried, and braised). Count on there being Fried Chicken Skins as well.
According to Central's JC Youngblood, the downtown location's larger kitchen allows them to get "experimental." They've been using the weekly Thirsty Thursdays as sort of a testing ground for dishes they hope to eventually offer as specials on Fridays.
Indeed, Youngblood, says they were this close to having their Pork Chop Debris sandwich as a special recently, but power went out at the bakery supplying the baguettes, and so it never came to fruition.
