For a number of years, winemakers have been taking advantage of the well-known pairings of food and their varietals. While winemaker’s dinners have been all the rage, recently, the talented brewers of wine’s bubbly cousin, beer, have been getting in on the action. It wasn’t too long ago that beer was regulated to cookouts and college parties, but in recent years, brewmasters have elevated their craft to incredible heights. With new tastes and trends emerging all the time, the art of craft beer has taken its rightful place alongside wine as a true art-form. With that recognition, has come the opportunity to experience these creative flavors paired with chef inspired eats.
Nowhere is this being done better than at the Portola Hotel & Spa. Brewer Kevin Clark of Peter B’s Brewpub and Executive Chef Jason Giles of Jacks Restaurant & Lounge and Peter B’s; have teamed up to create a series of Brewer’s Dinners that take the best of the worlds of food and craft beer and combine them into delicious, gatherings where seasonal and special varieties of come together in a wonderful celebration of taste.
Usually featuring three to four courses of locally sourced and sustainable food prepared by Chef Giles and accompanied by beers either brewed or chosen by Clark. These Brewer’s Dinners have become one of the most popular events at Peter B’s. Seating is limited and usually sell-out so early reservations are highly recommended. If you want to experience a new dimension in flavor, “like” the Peter B’s Facebook Page and you’ll know as soon as the next of the series is announced! There are events not to be missed.
