Pics - January Dinner

Yet another incredible evening of food, beer & friends. Last night's Brewmaster's Dinner featured 4 strong ales paired with 4 small plates. While it was a smaller offering than our usual 5 or 6 course meals, it's probably a good thing there were a few less rounds considering the high ABV of the beers. Josh at JJSinKCK wrote about his experience last night here - it's definitely worth reading. The food was incredible, as usual, and the beers were big, bold and not to be trifled with! Many thanks to those of who made it out, but for those that didn't, here's what you missed:

Pumpkin-walnut bread, P'tit Basque cheese and roasted butternut squash with Boulevard's Harvest Dance Wheat Wine - 9.1% ABV.

Smoked duck confit & pastry with sherry soaked raisins paired with Arcadia Cereal Killer Barleywine - 9% ABV.

Bourbon-braised pork with white cheddar cheese grits and McCoy's 10 year Anniversary Ale (3 year old "triple IPA"!) - 13% ABV. This stuff has pretty much aged into a barleywine and is delicious. It might still be on tap at the Foundry...

Mephistopheles. Appropriate name.

Raspberry "beer-a-missou" with Avery's Mephistopheles Russian Imperial Stout - 15.9% ABV.

Apparently I forgot to get my usual "cheers" close out picture...I am definitely blaming the beer! Information for February's dinner will be up soon and tickets are on sale now - 5 beers paired with aphrodisiac-inspired dishes. Should be interesting! Call us at 816-960-0866 to reserve your seat ASAP - you know it's going to sell out. Until next time,
