Melting Pot redefines ‘beer cheese’

     For the second time this year the Melting Pot’s Boise location will play host to another highly regarded craft brewery. This time the brewery of choice is none other than the largest craft brewery in the country, Boston Beer. Makers of the familiar Samuel Adams line of craft beers they will be on hand to answer questions for first timers as well as send you out the door with a free gift.

     A rather nice conversation with the hostess informed me that unlike similar dinners where the guest are requested to arrive at a set time you are encouraged to specify a time. The first brewery the Melting Pot inaugurated with was Rogue Ales (from Newport Oregon) in what will hopefully will be a monthly (if not more frequent) beer dinner.

“Join us for a night of delicious beer and decadent fondue. The evening will feature four beers and a NEW seasonal beer from Samuel Adams with a complimentary Samuel Adam's glass to take home. The evening will also be featuring a beer seminar presented by the Boston Beer Company.” –source, The Melting Pot’s Boise location site
