This was the second in-home beer dinner that I've done, and it was a lot of fun. Here's the rundown of the five courses, in order:
- Crusty, crunchy garlic bread topped with Italian-style diced tomatoes, served with Wells Bombardier.
- Tangy pasta salad with pepperoni, black olives, and red bell peppers, served with Ommegang Hennepin.
- Spicy boneless buffalo wings, served with Odell IPA.
- Pan fried bacon and cheddar sliders on buns dipped in extra virgin olive oil, served with Rodenbach Grand Cru.
- Pepperidge Farm chocolate fudge 3-layer cake, served with Brau Brothers Moo Joos.
When we finished, we were very full and slightly buzzed. It was a great evening that reinforces my desire to encourage anyone else who loves craft beer to try their own beer dinner at home. It can be a very rewarding experience.
