Next week, Dario’s will host another celebration of Belgian brewing and beer gastronomy. Limited seating is available for a four-course beer pairing dinner featuring several classic warm-weather beer styles.
Saison, perhaps our favorite summer beer, is a refreshing and complex low-alcohol style of pale ale traditionally brewed in farmhouses for consumption by farm workers; this family will be represented by Hennepin, a spicy, citrusy, well-hopped Saison by Brewery Ommegang from Cooperstown, New York. Flemish Red Ale is a fascinating oddity, a sweet-and-sour style with notes of fine balsamic, tart cherries, and malty sweetness; its balanced intensity makes it surprisingly quaffable and food-friendly. Our pick in this style is Monk’s Cafe by Brouwerij van Steenberge. Gouden Carolus Cuvee van de Keizer Rood, a bright, blonde and delicious strong golden ale, and Kasteel Cuvee du Chateau, a rich and malty strong dark ale, will round out the program.
As ever, Dario’s classic, comforting, seasonally focused cuisine will serve as complement and counterpoint for these outstanding ales.
Place your reservation soon — call us at (402) 933-0799 — as seating is limited and sure to fill quickly. The dinner will take place on Wednesday, June 29th at 7:00 in the evening, and will cost $50.
