There's probably no need to remind you but we have a feeling that Seattle Beer Week planning isn't on your priority list. And this is ok if you're the kind of person who prefers to live in the moment (or day) and plan accordingly. This works most of the time when one is pondering what beer festival, beer tasting, or brewery-sponsored event is on the itinerary. This, however, doesn't work when one considers there is only a handful of brewery dinners listed on the official Seattle Beer Week website. Instead of stressing dinners or Seattle Beer Week, the folks at Brother Barrel in Seattle's Lake City neighborhood invite you to put June 2nd on the calendar.
Starting at 5 pm and with your $75 admission, Brother Barrel celebrates their Anniversary with a 4-course dinner with beers from Elliott Bay Brewing Company's Dan Ashley and food from Elliott Bay Brewing's Brother Barrel kitchen. And the courses? Well take a look for yourself, courtesy the staff at Brother Barrel.
Starting with a brief cocktail reception, hosted by Brother Barrel's award-winning lead bartender, guests will be invited to pair sips from the bar with a light snack before the first course.
Moving onto the main menu, here's what the kitchen staff have to say about courses one thru four.
Homemade focaccia bread with smokey moody blue cheese and cherry apricot mostarda
Paired with Peach Brandy Barrel-aged Belgian Tripel & Farmhouse gold
Field greens with rose vinaigrette, pickled grapes, gala apple, pistachios and feta cheese
