Dorchester Brewing Co. teams with chef Avi Shemtov of Chubby Chickpea food truck fame to launch America’s first brewery taproom shakshuka brunch in the winter of 2018.
The brunch series kicks off on Sunday, Jan. 7, noon to 3 p.m., and will take place at the same time each Sunday this winter in the heart of Boston at Dorchester Brewing Co. (1250 Massachusetts Ave., Dorchester).
Shakshuka is a rich, savory Israeli stew of tomatoes, spices and sunny poached eggs that’s enjoying an ascendant moment right now with the rise of modern Middle Eastern cuisine across the United States. Shemtov was among the very first chefs in Greater Boston to serve shakshuka and it pairs deliciously well with craft-brewed local beer on those lazy winter Sundays.
Shakshuka will serve as the centerpiece of Chubby Chickpea’s brunch menu, which will also feature (among other dishes):
• Braised lamb belly hash with smoked potatoes and truffle-roasted garlic
• Fried challah French toast stuffed with prickly pear and labneh cheese
• Ful, a stewed fava bean spread with hard-boiled eggs and sumac-roasted onions
“Shakshuka is an Israeli comfort-food classic served across the Middle East that’s enjoying a surge in new-found popularity here in the United States,” said Shemtov. “We’re excited to have an opportunity to share our shakshuka and Chubby Chickpea’s other delicious sweet-or-savory brunch plates with the great folks at DBC and their many local-beer-loving fans.”
Guests can enjoy Chubby Chickpea’s shankshuka brunch with the year-round and latest seasonal brews from Dorchester Brewing Co., including Dorchestivus Resolution Berliner, Clapp’s Cream Ale, Embarrasment of Riches and any of their 20 partner brews and DCB-branded beers on tap.

ABOUT CHUBBY CHICKPEA
Avi Shemtov launched Chubby Chickpea in 2010, quickly becoming one of Boston’s most visible and most beloved food trucks while pioneering creative, modern and delicious modern Middle Eastern cuisine with Israeli roots.
Chubby Chickpea specializes in brewery taproom service, serving dishes such as chicken shawarma on puffy fresh pita bread imported each day from Israel, vegetarian stuffed grape leaves, handmade falafel and signature chickpea French fries at many of Greater Boston’s most beloved breweries.
Inspired by his love of great craft beer and respect for Greater Boston brewers, Shemtov in 2017 launched the Tapped Beer Truck, the region’s first mobile craft beer bar. Tapped, a vintage 1966 Chevy step van, pours great craft beer from its custom-made six-tap draft system at public festivals and private parties across the region.
