Three Upcoming Beer Dinners, And A Chance To Attend One For Free
|Boulevard Saison Brett, one of the beers featured in the Libertine Bar's beer dinner tomorrow night|
The Meddlesome Moth is bringing Adam Avery, founder of Colorado's Avery Brewing Co., for a five-course beer dinner, plus a bonus "Happy Ending" serving of Dihos Dactylion, set for 5:30 p.m. on Monday, June 13. Moth manager Matt Quenette shares some thoughts about Avery and his namesake brewery on the Moth blog, along with the menu and details. The dinner is $90 (including tax and tip) and includes a full can of Joe's Pils, followed by two 3-ounce dual-pairing pours of Demon Series, vintage and other limited-release Avery brews with each course. Full menu is after the jump.
Dual pairings will also be featured 7 p.m. Monday, June 6, at the Common Table's Beer Vs. Wine Dinner, except they will be of a competitive nature rather than a complementary one. Manager and house cicerone Jeff Fryman and Wine & Spirit Education Trust advanced-level wine student Tim Campbell will each pair a beer and wine, respectively, with five courses. Diners will vote which beverage makes the superior partner after each course. Cost is $80. Full menu is after the jump.
Also after the jump is the menu for tomorrow night's May beer dinner at the Libertine -- plus a chance to win a pair of tickets.
