Lagunitas Beer Dinner 5/1! Meet the brewer of Rodenbach 5/2!
Well we survived March and we’re almost half way through April. Thanks to all of you that came in for Renaissance and St. Patrick’s Day. It was all a blur and we usually need a month to recharge! Thanks again to Tomme Arthur and the rest of the crew at Port/Lost Abbey for making us a wonderful beer in “Churchills Finest Hour”. It is still available here in the bottle for in house consumption only.
The Craft Beer Conference is back and that means a lot of brewers from all over the world will converge on Beer City, USA. That allows us to have events in succession that we normally wouldn’t be able to. People have been pleading with us to have another beer dinner and we have listened! Culinary Prestidigitator A.G. Warfield is at it again. We will host Lagunitas on Tuesday, May 1st at 6pm. There are a couple of super special beers we might be getting our hands on that might change things up a bit. We are charging $55 a head all inclusive. You can purchase seats at the pub. We want to make this a small dinner so we are limiting this to 30 people. Tickets are available at the pub. The preliminary menu is as follows and is subject to change.
Course #1: Lil Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale
Apricot & grilled peach salad
Fresh apricots and grilled fresh peaches over arugula and spring mix with wheat croutons and peach vinaigrette
Course #2: Wilco Tango Foxtrot
Chocolate chipotle filet skewers
Tender filet cubes grilled to perfection resting on popped barley and drizzled with a chocolate chipotle red pepper sauce
Course #3: Hop Stoopid

Course #4: Oaked Imperial Red Ale
Smoked stuffed pork chop
