edgewild-logoIs it just me or does there seem like there are less beer dinners?  And I mean that in a good way.  I remember seeing a beer dinner pop up almost every other week.  It just didn’t seem sustainable.

Personally, I prefer seeing quality over quantity and that’s what Edgewild Bistro & Tap has done by teaming up with Stone Brewing to put on a killer dinner next Wednesday, September 14th.

Beginning at 6PM you’ll get four courses paired with, wait for it, eleven beers!  And not just any beers, these are cream of the crop:

Duck & Bison Albondigas
Duck and bison meat balls with crispy pancetta, veal demi glace, and goat cheese fritters
Paired with Stone IPA, Stone Delicious IPA, RuinTen

Mushroom Stuffed Summer Squash
Roasted summer squash stuffed with garlic-rosemary sautéed mushrooms and lemon wilted arugula, finished with sage oil and pepita puree
Paired with Saison du Buff & Woot Stout

Snapper en Papillote
American red snapper over kaffir lime basmati rice pilaf with rainbow carrots and red bell peppers topped with orange-harissa butter
Paired with Who You Callin’ Wussie & Citricado

Roasted Strip Loin
Salt & black pepper crusted strip loin, red potato latkes, broccolini, and sweet corn-scallion hollandaise
Paired with Arrogant Bastard & Bourbon Barrel Aged Arrogant Bastard

Caramel Toffee Cheese Cake
Rich Tahitian vanilla bean cheese cake topped with toffee caramel over oatmeal-graham crust
Paired with Mocha IPA & Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout

The price of the dinner is $55 per person or $100 per couple and a few reservations still remain. You can make reservations by calling (314) 548-2222.

Do you know what’s a wonder of the modern age?  Air conditioning. Why am I waxing on about modern conveniences on a beer blog?  Because I hear too many people talk about not wanting stouts during the summer.

I’m not advocating drinking a 13% beer after mowing the grass (though, there isn’t anything wrong with that.)  But, there is no reason not to enjoy some big beer after work in the comfort of your temperature-controlled home.

Do you know who has air conditioning and awesome beer?  The International Tap House in Central West End. While their beer selection is awesome all of the time, it’s extra awesome this Saturday, September 10th beginning at 2PM when they hold their Nightmare WAY Before Christmas event.

This event features some of the biggest and baddest beers in St. Louis all at one time.  Take a look at the list:

Luckily for you, Firestone Walker and Cicero’s have done the hard work for you. This Saturday, September 10th, is Vintage Series Night at Cicero’s.

Starting at 6pm, you’ll be able to enjoy the following beers:

Draft

  • Sucuba 2016
  • Helldorado 2015
  • Stickee Monkee 2016
  • Velvet Merkin 2015

Bottles

  • Stickee Monkee 2015
  • Helldorado 2015
  • Parabola 2016
  • XIX Nineteenth Anniversary Ale

There will also be a raffle for Firestone schwag beginning at 8pm. Don’t try and cellar this stuff yourself, let the pros handle it for you at Cicero’s.
