Just a test for tonight's dinner if the laptop doesn’t work. Its at 6pm!
Vic D here. It’s a bit early but I wanted to say hi while I set up the laptop and try to find a signal.
Everyone is milling in and being seated for tonight’s Ninkasi Brewers Dinner.
We met the chef and the hostess Alison. I see a few faces I recognize like the owner of Wandering Aengus.
Jamie Floyd of Ninkasi is setting up the meal with an intro and a surprise. An appetizer and summer radiant. My first time to taste a premiere beer.
Summer radiant is very flavorful and well radiant. Cant wait for the beer to be in stores. The fried cheese and salami was a nice combo...
next course up is a non traditional pale ale their spring release Spring Reign
The food will be tuna seared and accompanied by corn puree tomatoes and arrrugula
Light and beautiful is how I describe the next course. Very spring like. ooh i think I hear jazz in the background!
just waiting for the next course...what a lively crowd
Just learned that Ninkasi is truly a local beer with local ingredients. They are not organic so they can use local ingredients
Next up is a darker pale ale with proper American beer food...dogs and tots
The quantum pale ale is a bit sweeter and tastes German with the grain mustard and tater tots. mmmmm...
the more beers i see placed in front of me the louder the conversations...and now they bring us steak knives
next up is the flagship beer...total domination ipa. sounds great
beer tip: IPAs and cheese (fondue) go really well together
Wow. The beer and fondue with the beef are perfect together
so creamy with the right amount of bite
Did i mention this beef is local from Knee Deep Ranch
waiting for the shell fish and learning about IPA..hops a antibacterial. I didnt know that
ninkasi is the sumerian goddess of fermentation...in case you were wondering
the next course will be light and not complex so it doesn’t overpower the desert. bring on the believer double red ale
Salty pork, shellfish and red pepper. Different but still tasty
beer and food is wonderfully paired
I haven’t left, we are getting a short break before desert is announced
oat meal stout up next. Yum one of my favorites
beer float! omg! how awesome is that
beer floats are not for the meek. they are bold and tasty. I feel like im a judge for iron chef with this course
down to the bottom of mu float. who knew vanilla ice cream and oat meal stout would be so good together
Great dinner! Lots of applause for the chef, kitchen staff and the brew master as well as the waitstaff
Very glad my first brewmaster dinner was such a well planned and executed one
