2014’s first beer social, Hops and Heat, was a spicy good time. This write-up on Star Shaped, a blog kept by one of our regulars gives a great account of the kinds of things you can expect when our culinary team (Jon, Des and Rolf) collaborates with our brewing staff (Tyler, Matt and Tyler).

Join us on February 12th, as we go Around the World in five courses of beer and food.  Tickets are available to Imperial Pint Club members exclusively until January 26, when sales open to the public. Reservations are $35 and include gratuity.  Here’s the menu:
Departure- USA:  Fingerling potato skins with house-made smoked bacon and aged Vermont cheddar cheese, paired with Cream Ale.  Meatless option: sub tempeh bacon
Stop 1- Czech Republic: Smazeny Syr (Fried cheese with a frissee salad and tartar sauce), paired with Stephan Urquell Pils

Stop 2- Belgium: Endive quiche (endive leaf filled with warm mushrooms and house-made smoked bacon), paired with Saison l’Hiver. Meatless option: sub tempeh bacon
Stop 3- Germany: Sauerbraten (Red wine-marinated pot roast with house-made knoedel and caraway-braised cabbage), paired with Winterweizen. Meatless option: braised tempeh
Destination- England: Blackberry and Current Crumble topped with house-made toffee ice cream, paired with Old Stub Foot Strong Ale.
If this sounds like an event you’d want to attend (and really, why wouldn’t you?), you can make reservations with your server when you stop in or give us a call (603-431-1115).  As always, we will be happy to host you for this or any of our other upcoming beer socials.
