epic beer pairing dinner

Thursday,  April 27th, we will be hosting our first beer pairing dinner. We're very excited for this one, since all the beers in Epic Brewing's portfolio are very impressive- even more so since they come from Mormon territory in Salt Lake City. 

Epic's talented Brewmaster, Kevin Crompton, will be in attendance to chat with you about his beers. 

Our lovely Epic rep, Jeff, has been chatting (and drinking) with us for a while in preparation for this event. And when Chef Geoff came to me with the idea for Chinese-German pub food, I thought maybe he had lost his mind. But take a look at the menu for yourself and tell me whether there's some genius to his madness....

We'll be serving everyone a sample of Epic's limited release NE Hazy IPA to whet your appetite. Our meal will consist of 4 courses, and each course includes a full glass of beer:

1.) Pastrami Egg Rolls with Sour Cherry Duck Sauce, paired with Imperial IPA
2.) Sauerkraut Potstickers with Soy Chive Cream, paired with Elder Brett
3.) Char Sui Pork with Spaetzl and Grilled Bok Choy, paired with Tart & Juicy
4.) Spiced Caramel Banana Pudding with Homemade Chinese Cookie and Brainless Raspberry Cream, paired with Brainless Raspberry on Nitro

Additional Epic beers will be available for purchase, including: 
Citralush NE Hazy IPA
Big Bad Baptist Barrel-aged Stout with cacao nibs and coffee
Oak and Orchard- Syrah Trois


Pre-sale tickets are $65 until April 26th. 

Tickets day-of are $75. 

You may reserve a spot online purchase one in person at The Rusty Monk.
