Well, I am putting together my first beer tasting or pairing dinner.
The menu is the following:
Butternut Squash Soup pairing Bison Brewing’s Gingerbread Ale
Smoked Trout and Green Beans pairing Czechvar (Budweiser Budvar)
Rotisserie Chicken Salad pairing Bell’s Oberon Ale
Cheese Plater of Camembert, Fontina, and Gorgonzola pairing Fuller’s London Porter
and finally, two desserts to choose from
Berry Crisps and S’mores both pairing
Cantillon’s Rosé de Gambrinus or
Le Coq Imperial Extra Double Stout 2001
I hope that I have put together a nice menu with a wide variety of beers so that everyone comes away with something he or she really enjoyed. I am hope the pairings will show everyone what the possibilities are. Would you ever think to try a $8 bottle of Cantillon’s Rosé de Gambrinus with S’mores?
Interesting menu! Where are you hosting the dinner?
I am hosting the dinner in my home. I am hoping to introduce a number of friends to the wild possibilities of beer pairing as well as to a few beers they haven’t tried.
