Guests enjoyed a very tasty and fulfilling, nutritious and delicious menu of beer and food last Friday at our annual Hoppy Holidays event. A birthday – or should we say ‘beerthday’ – party of 9 also joined us. What an honor to do a double celebration: personal holiday for her and 8 friends as well as celebrating beer and food as we know it right now.

Jicama salad..almost ready!

Here’s the menu we savored:

  • Burnside Brewing Sweet Heat paired with Jerk Pickled Green Beans with Apricot glaze
  • 21st Amendment Fireside Chat paired with Butternut Squash and Celery Root Soup with Tarragon
  • Lindeman’s Cassis Lambic paired with Fennel and Jicama Salad with Pomegranate Seeds, Slices Almonds, and Balsamic Reduction made with the Cassis
  • Alameda Papa Noel Olde Ale paired with Molinari Salami, Fennel Salami, 4-year Gouda, Glazed Roasted Figs, and Marcona Almonds
  • Bonus Beer: Standing Stone 2012 Barleywine
  • Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout paired with Raspberry Chocolate Ganache Tart with Ancho Chili

Sound good?
