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.
