Pics - Mikkeller Yeast Series

McCoy's/Foundry owner James Westphal welcomed guests and suggested they check out the newly opened BeerKitchen. More info on that soon.

McCoy's brewmaster Keith Thompson hosted the dinner alongside Shelton Brothers' rep Brent, who managed to elude the camera all night. Not only did Brent describe the beers and the idea behind them, he also informed us that a keg of Cantillon Iris is on its way to Westport...

The tasting plate. From left to right: Maytag cheese puffs, sliced pears with thyme honey, breseola with hops infused mustard, white chipotle cheddar blocks and prosciutto-wrapped honeydew & watermelon.

Herb-roasted cornish game hen with white cheddar bread pudding. For this course guests chose their favorite of the Yeast Series to pair with the dish.

The elusive Texas Ranger chipotle porter paired with mango sorbet. Apparently, the name of this beer was contracted to a chain of grocery stores in Texas, and if sold outside the state it is to be referred to as simply "chipotle porter".

Last night's dinner was one of the most delicious and educational we've had yet. For many of the attendees these nights are something to look forward to each and every month and we invite you to join the fun. Tickets are on sale now for October's dinner featuring 6 small plates paired with beers exclusively from Amerisports Brewpub for only $35 including tax & gratuity. Come by or call us at (816) 960 -0866 for reservations. Cheers!
