Another Vegan Beer Dinner (8/28)


Thursday, August 28th, 2014

Now, those of you who were there in early July when we did our first vegan beer dinner with Anchor Brewing Co. already know this, but that was our biggest beer dinner yet. So big, in fact, that we had to set it up in the main dining room because the private room isn’t big enough.

Well, call me many things, but dense… OK wait, I’ve been called dense before. OK, but not stupid. The people had certainly spoken and loudly. And, well, if that wasn’t enough, some of you kept right on speaking to me and asking when we’d do another.

How ‘bout now?

Only this time, I’m doing something a bit different. I’m going through our beer collection and picking out a beguiling selection of beers, not being tied to one brewery, and just put together the best damned dinner I can.

With that in mind, I’ve selected some rather unique beers, hopefully some you’ve never tried. And I also thought it would be cool to do a vegan dinner with no fake meat. So there’s that.

Blistered padron peppers with white bean-walnut puree
-Anderson Valley Hwy 128 Gose

Roasted tomato and hominy soup with cilantro-serrano pesto
-Terrapin Rye Pale Ale

Flor de Mayo bean cake with cinnamon-onion coulis and poblanos
-Blue Mountain Local Species Barrel-Aged Ale

Butternut squash and mushroom mole poblano with yucca-onion hash
-New Belgian Abby Ale

Southern Tier Pumpking and Horchata “ice cream” float


$36 per person does not include tax and gratuity

  4. Do you accommodate people with dietary restrictions (pescatarians, in our case) at your beer dinners? If not, I understand.

    • Absolutely and we do it all the time. Of course, we also schedule vegetarian and pescetarian dinners as well. But, to answer your question, at nearly every dinner we do, there’s someone with a dietary restriction and we’re always happy to take care of them.

  5. Does one need reservations for this dinner? Are they still available?

  6. Same question…is there a link to buy tickets in advance or do we just show up for dinner?

    • We don’t sell tickets but reservations are very strongly encouraged. Both because there’s a limited number of seats available and both because we prepare food based on the number we expect. Every now and then we’re able to squeeze in a last minute table, but sometimes we can’t.

  7. I’d like to attend the 26-Sept-2012 beer dinner, but my wife can’t drink beer due to a gluten allergy. Is is possible for her to do the dinner, sans beer, at a reduced price?

    • Your wife is certainly not alone in that regard and we’re happy to offer her wine or other drinks in place or even, of course, just do the dinner without beer for a lower cost.
