BEER DINNER: Fred & Matt’s Big Picnic

UPDATE :  The whole menu wasn’t sent to me.  Here is the real one!

Taco Mac’s beer dinners usually feature a particular brewery paired with some great dishes.  About once a year they go a bit off script.  Each summer, Taco Mac Beverage Director Fred Crudder and Chef Matthew Deckard host what they dub – “Fred & Matt’s  Big Picnic.”  The literature for this year’s even doesn’t call it that, but I like the name so that’s what it’s called.  (Fred take note.) The dinner features Atlanta new comer 21st Amendment, Sierra Nevada, Aspall Cider, Harpoon, Brooklyn and Einbecker.   Here’s the menu –
