The Homebrewers Dinner, last night at Vie Restaurant in Western Springs was a blast. The food portions were generous and the beer pairings were unlike any other.
The talented chef, Paul Virant, along with a few judges at his side, chose 6 beers to be paired with his Homebrewers Dinner Menu. Banging Gavel Brews’ Russian Imperial Stout, Chicanery, was paired with a baked chocolate mousse, malted milk ice cream, raspberry-chocolate jam, and salted popcorn.
Some of our favorite brews paired with the 6 course dinner were: the IPA by Zane Fulton, the Brown Porter by Dustin Wakeman, and a Hibiscus Witbier by Ryan Choado & Alex Stankus.
We want to thank Paul and the Vie staff for a wonderful evening and the honor to serve our beer at the dinner. We’ll be back. ¡Salud!
