On Friday, we had friends over for a beer and food pairing dinner. Each couple brought a handmade beer and I chose a menu to pair with those beers.
Pilsner - appetizers while we gathered, smoked salmon and proscuitto with crackers, pico de gallo and locally-made tortilla chips;
Belgian Golden Strong Ale - salad with citrus and lemon vinaigrette
IIPA - grilled ribeye, potato and leek gratin, roasted brussel sprouts with smoked pork and onions
Saison with brett - cheese course
Barrel-Aged Old Ale - brownies
