Two beer dinners are planned along the Gulf Coast in January, and they both look very promising.
On Jan. 19 at 7 p.m., Seville Quarter in Pensacola will be hosting a NOLA Brewing beer dinner, a five-course meal that pairs various NOLA brews with some amazing sounding food. Don’t miss the cask-conditioned NOLA Blonde dry-hopped with Citra hops, a new and increasingly popular hop varietal that lends a tropical, mango-like flavor to the beer.
Tickets are $50 plus tax and gratuity. For more information, including the complete menu, visit the Seville Quarter website.
On Jan. 27, NoJa Restaurant in downtown Mobile will be the site of the month’s second Gulf Coast beer dinner, which will pair beers from Avery Brewing Company in Colorado and Back Forty Brewing Company out of Gadsden. Details are still in the works, but I’ve been told it will be a five-course dinner featuring Avery India Pale Ale and White Rascal, Back Forty Naked Pig and Truck Stop Honey and a “surprise beer” to be named later.
I’ve written about NoJa’s previous beer dinners, which provide a great introduction to the art of pairing great beer with great food, and I highly recommend checking out one of these this month.
