668: Neighbor of the Beast.
Imperial Stout Trooper.
Elm City Lager.
All of these brews from New England Brewing Company are iconic. And, at least one of these brews probably top your list of favorite beers in Connecticut, if not da world. So, wouldn’t it be awesome to get five different NEBCO brews, pair them with five different courses, and even use other NEBCO beers in the making of each course? Yeah, dumb question. Of course it would be awesome. Like riding a unicorn over a rainbow into a pot of gold kind of awesome. Oh, but Coalhouse, New England Brewing, and OmNomCT can top that: how about some rare brews like a cask conditioned beer and (you ready???) a bourbon barrel aged Stout Trooper?
This beer dinner will no doubt go down in legendary status for beer and food lovers alike and is taking place on 10/21, starting at 7 pm. Tickets are just $55 each (that doesn’t include tax and gratuity) and the proceeds are being donated directly to Stamford Hospital’s Bennet Cancer Center in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
As for the menu, we worked closely with Gerard Robertson (owner of Coalhouse, Beer King, and all around Übermensch) on creating dishes that would highlight the brews and do them justice. Each dish is also centered around the idea of the bounty of a New England fall harvest. And, here’s just a sneak peak of the menu with the beer and pairings to be revealed later…we have to keep some things a mystery, right?
Course 1: Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad
Course 2: Beer Roasted Oysters
Course 3: New England Fall Harvest Pizza (with a touch of bacon) made with a Sea Hag IPA dough
Course 4: Beer-braised Pot Roast with Smoky + Chunky Chipotle Mashed Taters
Course 5: Beer-battered Fried Pumpkin Pie (oh yes we did)
Because spots are limited, you should call up Gerard and Coalhouse ASAP @ (203) 977-7700 and get your tix. We are not responsible for the pandemonium that ensues when the New England Brewing Harvest Dinner sells out. You’ve been warned.
