Pics: Latin Fever Dinner 8.04.09

Another very impressive Brewmaster's Dinner last night - we had yet another sold-out crowd and the beer and food were phenomenal. I can't seem to say enough about these monthly dinners, other than get your reservations in now! Many thanks to all of you who made it out, but for those that didn't, here's what you missed:

The first beer of the night: Argentina's "favorite beer", Cerveza Quilmes, sampled with pork and potato empanadas. They went down easy...

Guests await the arrival of the first course while finishing off the Quilmes & empanadas...

Acapulco Seafood Cocktail of jumbo shrimp & fried calamari in our house-made cocktail sauce of avacado, cilantro, onions, tomatoes and cucumbers w/ fried plantain garnish, with McCoy's own Mexican Cerveza.

Miniature pork carnitas tacos with cotija cheese, fire-roasted corn & avacodo relish with Rogue's spicy Chipotle Ale.

Carne asada with chimichurri sauce, tortilla strips & fajita peppers over Southwestern desert rice with fried tomatillo skin, served with Negra Modelo.

Chocolate-chipotle lava cake in cajeta caramel sauce with Xingu Brazilian Black Lager.

These events have really become something to look forward to, and September's "Smokin' Brews" dinner should be no exception - smoked beers & smoked food...more info on that very soon!
