Brewmaster’s Dinner Series at Social Kitchen and Brewery, July 2010-January 2012
The monthly BMD series was a collection of 18, unique, four-course, omnivore- or vegetarian-option, prix fixe dinners with beer pairings poured and presented table-side by the brewmaster, all for just $30-$40 — can’t beat it. Social Kitchen and Brewery was without a chef for several months, so I wrote all the food recipes during that time, too, which was really fun. Then super-talented cuisine à la bière chef Tyler Morrish joined as a guest chef, running his pop-up Brewmaster’s Dinner kitchen out of a tiny corner of the SKB kitchen, which was cooking full dinner service for the rest of the dining room. Running those dinners with Tyler and the rest of the SKB staff were some of the most fun times I’ve had in a restaurant.
Other Event Menus
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with a variety of chefs, beverage directors, and restaurants on beer-paired event menus. Sometimes, we collaborate on a menu from scratch, and other times the chef pairs food to my beer selections or I pair beers to the chef’s dishes. Here’s a selection from among the dozens of pairing menus I’ve collaborated on.
