Last November Schlafly worked with the Ritz-Carlton to put on a event to celebrate the release of their Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout and Oak Aged Barley Wine. Unfortunately, I had prior commitments and was unable to attend. I’ve now received word that a new beer dinner has been scheduled for April 4th at 7PM at the Ritz-Carlton in Clayton. Rhett Haynes, the Wine Director at the Ritz, was kind enough to send over the menu (which is still tentative at this point):

First Course:

Cauliflower Leek Veloute
Lobster Fritters, Chili Coriander Sambal

Dry Hop American Pale Ale

Third Course:

Gruyere Glazed Tenderloin of Beef
Purple Potato Croquette, Black Tiger Shrimp Skewer
Spiced Mustard Jus

Raspberry Hefeweizen

Dessert (TBD)

Oatmeal Stout

The cost of the event is $60 per person not including tax and gratuity. There event will also include a reception in the Wine Room which will then be followed by dinner in the Grill.  Reservations are required and can be made by phoning 314-863-6300 x433.
