Sixpoint Brewery is pretty new to the Connecticut market, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming all the buzz. We had our first taste of Sixpoint last year when we tried out around 50 different custom brews (some made with lobster, some made with oyster, even some made with saffron) for their annual Beer for Beasts event in Brooklyn. If you’re interested, it’s going down again this year with tons of brews and food trucks on hand all to support The Humane Society of NY.
But we’re not writing today to tell you about Beer for Beasts, we’re here to let you know about a beer dinner at Bistro 7, Farm-to-Fork Restaurant + Bar in Wilton. When we went to Bistro 7 a few months ago we really enjoyed the food and think that this will be a killer dinner. The Spring Tasting Dinner will be on March 28 from 5-10:30 pm, will be $45 per person, and will require reservations so get on that…chop chop.
From the looks of the dishes, beer is being used in very fun, creative, and unexpected ways. So, let’s gander at the menu:
Mussels in “Bengali” Broth, Paired with The Crisp
Mussels steamed in Sixpoint Bengali Tiger and curry broth, shallots, lime, lemon grass, organic yellow potato, organic ginger, beer buttered baguette.
