frame presents Whiskey + Smoke by Pitmaster Michael Barrera and Motor City Gas Whiskey Distillery with cocktails by frame’s mixtress Jaz’min Weaver

Smoky and Succulent. At frame we simply have a ubiquitous passion for really good BBQ, which is why we’re transforming frame into a summer haven for our most favorite masterpieces by our very own Pitmaster Michael Barrera.

Showcasing his “farm to smoker” philosophy and seducing us with fire, Michael’s readying us for his July chefy meticulousness in the open air, done frame-style.

Magic-dusted baby back ribs, juicy smoked pulled pork, smoked bacon baked beans, honey-laced cornbread, spicy pickles, and house-made banana pudding with salted caramel. We know your mouth is watering. Cuz ours is.

Add to this a whisky cocktail pairing of unmatched repertoire by frame’s mixtress Jaz’min Weaver and a collab with our friends at Motor City Gas Whiskey Distillery as we’re infatuated with their “farm to glass” ethos; growing their own grain for their own whiskey production.

Organic Buckwheat. Heritage-Style Organic Danko Rye from Poland. And Heirloom Corn from England all growing~~ just a stone’s throw away on their Ann Arbor farm. Bringing us, whiskey straight from the source.

The Trio of Dreams BBQ. SUMMER. LIBATIONS Say No More. We’re There.
