Omnivore - Upcoming beer dinners
Decatur is the site of two beer dinners next week.
On Tuesday, March 4, at 6:00 p.m. the Brick Store Pub will play host to another in the series of "Terrapin & Friends" beer dinners, this one featuring beers from Terrapin Beer Company and Lagunitas Brewing Company of Petaluma, Calif. The beer offerings will include Terrapin Wake-n-Bake, a vertical tasting of Lagunitas' Hairy Eyeball and a cask of Terrapin India Brown aged on pinot noir-soaked oak chips. Tickets are $55. Call 404-687-0990 for details.
On Thursday, March 6, the Twain's beer dinner originally scheduled for early February will take place. The dinner will be an opportunity for the brewpub to try out its new Randall, a contraption that pulls beer through a tube stuffed with fresh hops. The menu includes Gorgonzola with fig marmalade paired with a Randallized Sleepy Conscience ESB, neo-classic Belgian mussels paired with Captain Stormfield Abbey Ale, seared pork chop and apple chutney paired with a barrel-aged strong ale, and a Three Lies Imperial Stout vanilla-bean ice cream float. Tickets are $50, which includes gratuity and tax.
