Not just for the chance to enjoy a five course dinner, paired with six IPAs. Not just for the chance to speak with brewers at Astoria's largest brewery. But also a chance to enjoy six beers made by some of the most celebrated brewers in the area.
You can imagine preparing for a 3-Way IPA requires quite a bit of finesse. This summer seasonal is built to be the best IPA that Fort George and a couple of good friends can brew. But first many questions must be answered. Which hops should be used? What’s the target OG? Where to throw the first 3-Way IPA release party? And does this can color match my hat? Before any test batches can be brewed or events can be planned, bread (or more specifically naan) must be broken.
Join Fort George on Wednesday, January 20th for the annual IPA & Indian Cuisine Brewer’s Dinner. This intimate night features five courses of wood-fired fare paired with six IPAs from the breweries in the upcoming 3-Way IPA collaboration. It’s your chance to rub elbows with the brewers, offer up your three cents about this year’s beer, and all the while gorge on spicy Indian food and hoppy IPAs.
