As many of you know, Coalhouse Pizza was generous enough to offer us a chance to be master chefs and plan our very first beer dinner on March 19, 2012! Well, we’re happy to say the Victory Brews & Bacon Dinner dinner was a BLAST and went off without a hitch! Here’s a quick recap of the awesomeness:
In an amazing feat of glorious food magnitude, Coalhouse Pizza burst into life. Gerard Robertson stood behind the Coalhouse Pizza counter, huddling up with his chefs, servers, and staff. In the kitchen, in the dining room, and behind the counter plates and silverware were chiming and clinking. People started streaming in and servers quickly took orders for fun Victory Brewing Mash-Ups such as Dark Devil, Silver Back, Dark Waters, and Monkey on the Moon. We loved the Monkey on the Moon, but Sean McCain from Victory Brewing warned us to be careful because while it goes down easy due to the smooth sweetness, that bad boy is strong.
Lucky us got to sit between the awesome Alicia and Renato Ghio of rMedia/The Natural Princess fame and Ryan and Kyle of Food + Beer. And, we met the Ultimate Beerocrat, James Gribbon who seriously lays down the law with his Friday Froths on CTbites.com and met Gregg Glaser, Editor-in-Chief of the awesome Yankee Brew News. We also know Caitlin Thayer from Barefoot Media, Josh Lew, @luckycloudyrsky, Renzo Kian-Kubota from Harry’s in Fairfield, Christopher Carlson co-author of Puddlejumpers, and Aaron Tubbs were there, but we’re bummed we didn’t get the chance to chat with them as much.
