Tuesday, July 8
Beer Tasting Dinner
$45 per guest

1st Course:
Chilled Cucumber Soup, Curried Beets, Ground Peanuts Served with Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse.
The second collaboration of Brooklyn Brewery with the G. Schneider & Son brewery of Kelheim, Germany.
This exciting beer is a strong pale weissbock at 8% ABV, robustly bittered and then heavily dry-hopped with Mr. Drexler’s favorite American hop varieties. It will be fermented using the Schneider Weissbier strain of yeast

2nd Course:
Seared Tuna Sliders with Wasabi Aioli and Tomato-Ginger Relish Served with Green Flash IPA.
This West Coast-Style India Pale Ale is extravagantly hopped, full flavored, medium bodied and copper colored. A menagerie of hops is combined throughout the brewing process to impart specific characteristics. Hops used include Simcoe for a unique fruitiness and grapefruit zest, Columbus for strong hop pungency, Centennial for pine and citrus notes, and Cascade for floral aroma.

3rd Course:
Grilled Tiger Shrimp with Spicy Pickled Watermelon Served with Ommegang Hennepin
This hoppy, farmhouse style ale has champagne like effervescence with a crisp but light on the tongue finish. Similar to the Belgian Saison style, this beer serves well as an aperitif. Hennepin has a majestic golden hue. The style is called Grisette or farm house and is considered to be in the domain of the Belgian Saisons.

4th Course:
BBQ Spice Grilled Filet Mignon, Baked Bean Jus, Onion Rings Served with Nostradamus From Brasserie Caracole.
This beer is a very complex artisanal Wallonian brown ale, rich, warming, a little piquant in the mouth with liquorice and mocha flavors, pear and toasted bread background notes.

Fifth Course:
Chocolate-Mango Opera Cake, Litchi Anglaise Served with Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout
Originally a drink for lactating mothers, oatmeal stout was described as nutritional on early labels.
Oats are in the same family as barley, and a small addition yields great flavor. Popular in the late 1800’s, the last oatmeal stout was brewed before the First World War until Samuel Smith reintroduced this style in 1980.

Reservations are strongly recommended.
Tasting starts 6pm at:
The House of Brews
302 W. 51st. St. (Eighth Ave.)
New York, NY
(212) 541-7080
