About a year ago, I discussed a few restaurants that treated craft beer like a beverage that not only belonged on the menu, but also complimented the dishes they were serving.  One of the restaurants I highlighted was Sidney Street Cafe, so it should come as no surprise that Sidney Street will be hosting a New Belgium Brewing beer dinner on Tuesday, June 26th.

This beer dinner will be hosted by New Belgium’s brewmaster Peter Bouckaert. Mr. Bouckaert joined New Belgium in 1996 and has been instrumental in their sour beer program. I had a chance to meet him once and can tell you that he’s a warm and interesting guy.

This five course dinner will start at 6:30PM on June 26th and will run you $100 per person. Reservations can be made by calling 314-771-5777. Here’s a look at the amazing menu:
