Tag: beer dinner

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.
