Beer Dinners

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

Chrissy Deal

Wednesday, Nov. 2, 7 p.m.

We’ve had Halloween beer dinners before, but this year, our seventh in business, we thought we’d switch it up and do something different. So we’re hosting a special beer dinner as the centerpiece of a two-day Dia de los Muertos (that’s Day of the Dead) celebration.  The celebration will kick off with a kids’ event the evening before, but unless you’re under 12 or so, the place you’re really going to want to be is at the dinner on Nov. 2. No costumes for this one, but we do encourage you to paint your face or wear a mask.

We took a different approach to writing this menu because we wanted to focus on foods traditionally served on Dia de los Muertos in Mexico.  As it turns out, the lineup from Day of the Dead Brewery out of Tecate, Mexico, matched up perfectly with our list of traditional dishes.  Mind you, we did take a bit of liberty with the final menu, but you know we often like to put our own personal touch on the authentic foods we serve. I think you’ll find it to be sumptuous and fun.

Day of the Dead is Mexico’s first craft brewery, or at least the first one to be distributed in the States, and the quality is certainly there.  Plus, if you need inspiration for what kind of face paint to choose, check out their labels! What a perfect choice for our first Day of the Dead Beer Dinner.

We will also offer all the dishes for the dinner as well as the beers themselves a la carte in the main dining room that evening, but if you’re interested in the full event, the beer dinner is a much better value.

Oskar Blues Beer Dinner

Chrissy Deal

Thursday, Sept. 1, 2016
7 p.m.

Join us for a very fun and delicious beer dinner with our old friends from Oskar Blues.  I actually recall having them in our very first tap line-up when we opened seven years ago, and I’ve remained a fan of their beers ever since.

In fact, these days, I appreciate their authenticity and true-to-style commitment more than ever.  While some brewers get caught up trying to wow us by out-crazying one another, these guys are saying, “Do you like Pilsner?  Well, here’s a really good one.”  And I can’t say how much I like that.

In fact, every one of the beers we’ll be tasting this evening is a perfect example of the the style it claims.  The true sign of a craftsman’s work.  

When we sat down to taste these, chef Michael was literally finishing my sentences, and again, the menu was written before we knew it.  I’ve got to say, credit lies where credit is due.  Writing these things has always been what I felt best at, and the kid keeps coming up with such amazing ideas, I’ve got to yield the floor.  Which is handy, because he’s the one who is ultimately executing the menu on dinner night.

As for the specifics, if you haven’t had a Sonoran hot dog, they’re a thing to behold.  Not surprisingly, Mexico took one of our classics and just did one better.  A hot dog, wrapped in bacon, served with guacamole, bean puree, pickled onions, spicy mayo?  Um, yes please.  And it’s going to go great with the Pilsner.

But, honestly, I could just as easily go off on the rest of the dishes, and beers, because they’re all going to be great!
