Fine Food and Craft Brew Pairing
Friday, May 20 - 6:00 PM
What better way to celebrate the opening night of the World Expo of Beer than a delicious five-course dinner paired with an appropriate ale or lager?
Join Beer School on Friday night and welcome back Chef Jason Wellnitz, who has created a menu unique to Beer School that is sure to please a variety of palettes. You can’t find an experience like this anywhere else in Frankenmuth!
Course 1 starts participants off with an appetizing twist: a “fizzy” fruit offering, to be paired with Mountain Town Brewing Railyard Raspberry.
Course 2 is a passion fruit apple soup, served cold to bring out the exotic flavors of the Redstone Meadery Passionfruit Nectar accompanying it.
Course 3 is a freshly prepared salad featuring baby greens, honey yeast croutons, grapefruit, toasted pine nut, a goat cheese brule that will melt in your mouth, topped with a Serrano honey hop vinaigrette made using Tapistry Brewing’s Enigma IPA that will also be available for tasting.
Course 4 is a carefully braised lamb shank, served alongside Roquefort celeriac potato puree and onion sprouts. The lamb shank will be introduced to Stormcloud Brewing Company’s 228 Tripel-style Belgian ale during the cooking process, and the rich and savory smell will get you salivating when you walk through the doors of Beer School. It will be paired with the 228 Tripel.
Course 5 is dessert, which is everyone’s favorite part of the meal. Chef Jason has come up with a blood orange curd tartlet, made with and accompanied by Cheboygan Brewing Company’s Blood Orange Wheat.
As you taste these exciting dishes, brewery experts will join our class to talk about their paired brews and Chef Jason will detail the process behind each course, from start to finish.
This one-of-a-kind dining opportunity will be held on-site at the Lion Haus near the Harvey Kern Pavilion.
