New Belgium Brewery Beer Dinner

So, here’s something cool.  And, well, this is how it was explained to me.  The guys at New Belgium Brewery are bringing to the triangle exactly two kegs of their latest “Lips of Faith” series beers, a Belgian-style Blond Ale.  One they’re going to be pouring at the beer festival in Raleigh, and one is coming here to pour at this dinner (and, of course, in the days that follow).  Now this part may not exactly endear me to those very same kind folks at New Belgium, but I’m actually going to do this dinner without their flagship beer, Fat Tire.  Honestly, nothing against it, but you see it everywhere and I really think it would be a shame to leave the other beers on the sidelines.  So, maybe you’ll find a new favorite New Belgium beer as well.

Our First Movie Night

Tuesday, April 6th at 6:30 pm, we’ll be showing the documentary “Beer Wars” downstairs in our event room. There is no cover charge, nor a special menu for the evening, just a chance to come down and watch an interesting movie about the state of beer making in the US.  We will have a special list of beers, typically not on the menu available and have arranged a special guest, local brewer to give a short talk during a brief intermission planned half-way through the show.  Seating will be limited as we want to arrange seating so everyone gets a good view of the movie, so please call ahead to insure a spot.
