Pics - Grand Teton Beer Dinner 1.22.12

Sunday night's Brewmaster Dinner featuring Idaho's Grand Teton Brewing Co. was another excellent showcase of food and beer pairings, and was a personal favorite of recent dinners. The beers were carefully matched with each dish allowing the characteristics of each to shine, while maintaining a unique interplay of balance and contrast. Thanks to those of you who made it out, but for those that didn't here's what you missed:

pan-fried sweetbreads with red chili flake honey paired with Pursuit of Hoppiness imperial red ale

smoked tomato & fennel broth with basil goat cheese, house made cracker and Sweetgrass American pale ale

red snapper with citrus butter pommes anna and roasted winter vegetables with Howling Wolf hefeweizen

roasted sirloin with fried egg and spicy potatoes with Bitch Creek ESB

chai-infused pana cotta with candied citrus zest and chocolate sauce with Wake Up Call imperial porter
Tickets are on sale now for February's dinner: the second annual Grain vs. Grape Dinner featuring local sommelier Kathy Rohlfing - a food pairing battle of wine vs. beer. Last year's was a great learning experience and a whole lot of fun. Will beer take home the crown again this year? Find out at Beer Kitchen Sunday, February 11th.
