Muss & Turner’s New Belgium Beer Dinner, 3/26

Muss & Turners (Smyrna, GA)  is hosting a Five Course New Belgium Beer Dinner on 3/26/12.

Special guest appearance by local brewer Jared Burton.

When New Belgium Field Brander Jared Burton won the latest Loose Lips contest, his eyes filled with visions of his Southern home  specifically, peaches and cookouts. Brewed to life, Burton’s Beer is a smoked peach porter with the deep and tawny hue of roasted chestnuts. The nose is rich with smoke and coffee notes, cherry wood and that unmistakable twang of peaches. This bold porter weighs in at a flush 7% ABV and the dark and dulcet malt bill makes for a long, lingering finish. Burton’s Beer is sure to keep you sipping and smiling in your want for more.

Featured Beers: Dig Spring Pale Ale, Mothership Wit, Belgo, Cocoa Mole, Jared’s Smoke Peach Porter

Alongside the delicious beer, Chef Parenteau will present a savory menu inspired by whatever is freshest this early spring.

Monday + March 26th 2012.  6:45pm Reception

$47.91 per person + tax (and small fee to BPT)
(Breakdown: $39.93 per person + 20% gratuity + tax & fee)

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 –
