Marble Moves to Minnesota!

New Mexico, the Rodney Dangerfield of states. Just when I thought a local brewery was going to get some national respect, things went awry. The latest issue of BeerAdvocate magazine has glowing reviews of both the Marble Red (B+ rating) and Oatmeal Stout (A rating). While that's excellent and deserved news for Marble, once again our fine state gets slighted. Apparently, Marble is brewed in Albuquerque, MN, rather than NM. No wonder I don't drink there a whole lot- that's a hell of a ride home after a few beers!
Marble will be bringing some beers from MN to a beer dinner at Standard Diner on Sunday, April 18, starting at 5 pm. I'm not going to give the full descriptions for all six courses, but here's an abridged rundown: Cheddar/Beer Soup w/ Oatmeal Stout...Caprese Salad w/ Amber Ale...Watermelon/Tuna Ceviche w/ Double IPA...Kobe Sliders w/ Red Ale...Lollipop Lamb w/ Quad...Cinnamon Baked Brie w/ Bock. So, the typical stuff you find at diners in Jersey. $50 per person (plus tax + tip)gets you all this fanciness, and the waitress might call you "Hon" and snap her gum at you. Call 243-1440
