Beer Dinners: Fillers for the Belly and the Blog

Slow news month, what can I say? I never thought I'd say I'm thankful for beer dinners, but at least the upcoming one at Nob Hill Bar and Grill gives me something to write about. And yes, I know Full Sail released an Alt beer that is on shelves, but it is just too hot these days to break a sweat typing about any Full Sail beers. However, I'm always glad to promote a local establishment that is promoting craft beer because, well, look at all craft beer has done for me.
Nob Hill Bar and Grill is hosting a beer dinner Tuesday, June 26 at 7 pm. For $35, you get four courses of food paired with beer. The menu:

First course, herb salad with a goat cheese crouton, crispy prosciutto, finished with a white balsamic honey vin. Paired with Pilsner

Second course, Ahi tuna tacos made with jicama "tortillas" topped with an orange cranberry salsa. Paired with India White Ale and Double White

Third course, Pork belly with spatzle finished with pan au jus. Paired with Imperial Red

Fourth course, locally grown apricot bread pudding. Paired with Abbey Darkness

There are still spots available, so give them a call at 266-4455 to reserve a spot.

Are these beers brewed by any particular brewer? Are they just generic where the can says "Beer" or maybe "Double White BEER"? :)

They all sound like Marble beers - India White, Double White, Imperial Red, and Abbey Darkness...

Bill- The M, A, R, B, L, and E on my keyboard are broken.

Bad omission on my part! Sorry about that.

Just a FYI. La Cumbre has their Elevated IPA in Cans and are for sale at the Brewery today.
