A big fat Thanks to the entire Limestone Brewing Crew for a fun and enlightening inaugural woman’s beer event. They already throw terrific events around beer and it was such a pleasure to get to collaborate with Ken (Brewer), Alex (GM), Adam & Christina (Servers), and Juan and Augustine (Kitchen). My many thanks!
More importantly – thanks to the attendees: Melissa, Erika, Wendy, Lori, Leslie, Trisha, Jess, Lindsey, Sylvia, Carol, Amy, Paula, Kirsten, Christina, Laurie, Melissa, Joan and Penny. Woo Hoo!!! The guests make the party and a fun one it was.
FYI – some of the courses were paired with 2 beers – mostly because there was an opportunity to partner two beers with the foods for different flavor experiences. Works out well that way.
Here’s the special menu made up just for the event:
1st Course – Old Chicago Amber Ale and Professor Darnell’s Berry Ale paired with baked brie with walnuts, mushrooms and shallots.
2nd Course – Wheatlander Hefeweizen with Limestone Beer Cheese soup (classic!!)
3rd Course – Springbrook Honey Ale and Replicale APA with crab puffs, red cabbage and mustard remoulade. (The nose on the Replicale was incredilicious!!!)
4th Course – Pilcher Pale Ale with eggplant penne pasta with ham and peas
5th Course – Dolomite Oatmeal Stout and Flying Pig Imperial IPA with coffee cake and vanilla ice cream.
Ohmygoshyummy. When are you planning your next/first women and beer event?
