The Yelp Indy Elites Ring in Fall in Fine Fashion at Chef JJ’s Back Yard

'Twas the hottest Equinox on record in Indy… and it makes sense because the night with the Yelp Elite Squad at Chef JJ's Back Yard was on fire! Elites were treated to a very special evening with Chef JJ and Clay Robinson of Sun King Brewing teaming up to serve a full four course dinner of unique beer & food pairings.


After enjoying their first Sun King Cream Ale, Elites took their seats at the communal tables for the intimate and exclusive dining experience. The first course was more of that delicious and unique Cream Ale paired with a watermelon coleslaw. Second up was the Wee Mac Scottish Ale paired with a smoked butternut squash soup.

The third course of the evening was your classic American meat & potatoes dish done Chef JJ-style — gorgonzola-stuffed potatoes along with slow-roasted carved steak, which paired perfectly with the Osiris Pale Ale.



A torched s'more dessert paired with the Sun King Hefe-weizen, which was a very special Elite treat as the Elites were among the first 50 people to ever taste the just-tapped Hefe-weizen!

Chef JJ created every course on the big green egg grill, and it sure must have made an impression with Elite Squad member MJ W — because he couldn't go home without purchasing the floor model right then & there. Huzzah!
