Pics - GABF Dinner 9.18.11

Sunday night's Brewmaster's Dinner was a 5 course food and beer pairing featuring beers that took home medals in the 2010 Great American Beer Festival.  While this month's dinner was a smaller, relatively low-key affair, the food and beer were as impressive as always.  This was a great opportunity to taste some of the best beers in the world carefully paired with some of the best food in KC.  Huge thanks to those of you who made it out, but for those that didn't here's what you missed:

surprise reception course of smoked salmon, caviar & watercress

butter poached asparagus and spiced burrata with parma ham and melon creme fraiche paired with Pyramid's Apricot Ale - silver medal: Fruit Beer

crispy razor clams with hedgehog butter & tiny lemon cress served with Deschutes' Mirror Pond - gold medal: English-style Pale Ale

waygu & beet tartare, charred basil vinaigrette, sheep's milk cheese & foie toast

paired with Stone's Sublimely Self Righteous - bronze medal: India Black Ale

honey braised Berkshire pork shank, peppered parsnips & smoked bacon pea jus paired with Ommegang's Three Philosophers - bronze: Belgian-style Abbey Ale

beemster vlaskaas cheese with pickled grapes & rocket served with McCoy's Wee Willy Scotch Ale - silver medal: Scotch Ale

Reservations are open for next month's dinner featuring ciders from Crispin & Fox Barrel; 5 courses paired with rare apple & pear ciders.  More information as it becomes available or come by any of the three Beer KC restaurants or call 816.389.4180 to make reservations - $50 per person including tax & gratuity.
