Grain vs. Grape Dinner - 2.12.12

It's time again for one of the most exciting and interesting Brewmaster's Dinners of the year - the second annual Grain vs. Grape Dinner: an epicurean food pairing battle between beer and wine. Beer KC beer director Randyl Danner will be selecting beers for the 5 course dinner, while renowned sommelier Kathy Rohlfing chooses the wines. Last year's dinner was very informative and a whole lot of fun - check it out pictures here. Here's what's on this year's menu:

- sizzled day boat scallop, pain perdu and truffle fig butter; Grand Teton Persephone imperial pilsner vs. Chateu Lamonthe Bordeaux Blanc

- spent grain poached egg, steak frites with duck gravy; Kulmbacher Monshchof Schwarzbier vs. Arizona Stronghold Nachise

- creamed local oyster mushrooms and cheesy fennel poofs; Goose Island Fleur vs. Paitin Nebbiolo "Ca Veja" Piedmont

- java-braised beef rib, peppered, charred & smashed sweet corn; Deschutes Black Butte XXIII vs. Cedarville Zinfandel

- bounce berry pancake with vanilla cream & chutney; Boulevard Two Jokers vs. Jorge Ordonez "Selection Especial" Moscatel

The dinner will take place at Beer Kitchen on Sunday, February 12th at 6:30. Tickets are only $60 - including tax and gratuity - and are available at all 3 Beer KC restaurants or by calling Beer Kitchen at (816) 389-4180. Cheers - happy Valentine's Day!
