I caught up with Chef Ben Menken, the head chef of The Current. After years of working with Chef Terrill Brazelton at different local restaurants like Slice and Troup’s Pizza, Ben received the opportunity to create his first menu as a head chef at Cahaba’s new food venture.

“We saw bringing a full time food truck to Cahaba as a great addition to the brand and to bring another experience to our brewery’s customers.”

So what can you expect at Cahaba Brewing’s new food truck? Their brewpub/grill-inspired menu will include their take on popular staples like:

  • Smash burger
  • Bratwurst dog
  • House-smoked wings
  • Pretzel and beer cheese
  • Salads
  • And more

Big fan of changing up your orders? The Current will switch up their food truck menu with new specials dedicated to different cultural cuisines and seasonal ingredients.

I’m already a big fan of Cahaba Brewing, and I can tell this food truck will be yet another reason I head to the brewery on the weekends. They’ll have QR codes on tables throughout the brewery, so you can order your food while you sip your beer—no need to walk back and forth to the truck.
