Chef Aaron Barnett of St. Jack is all about local Portland, Oregon, breweries like Breakside. “They’ve started doing some Belgian-style and French farmhouse–style beers that are fun and interesting,” he says. “The French farmhouse ales are so light and refreshing. They’re so creative with what they make and how they make them.” Right now, Breakside makes a French Fennel Farmhouse brewed with fennel seed and fennel pollen. It was a collaborative effort between the brewery and Barnett’s fellow Portland chef, Gabriel Rucker of Le Pigeon.
