Beachwood BBQ & The Bruery Beer Dinner

Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach, CA will be hosting their second annual beer dinner featuring The Bruery on October 11, 2010. Chef and owner Gabe Gordon will prepare a six-course meal using the techniques of molecular gastronomy that will include such exotic treats as kangaroo and a duck tamale with foie gras air and cotton candy. If this isn’t exciting enough already, Patrick Rue, CEO of The Bruery, will be there to continue pushing the envelope with beer pairings that will include such rarities as Barrel Aged Coton, Melange No. 3, and yes—Black Tuesday. This food and beer experience will be available for $85 plus tax and gratuity. Reservations are a must.

Beachwood BBQ, despite being younger than four years, has already won national recognition and been named among the best beer bars on planet earth in BeerAdvocate magazine for two years running. The Bruery, which is still only a little over two years old, has had a similar stratospheric rise in prominence since the release of Black Tuesday. Expect boundaries and taste buds to be pushed to their limits.

Beachwood BBQ and The Bruery…

In celebration of LA Beer Week, Beachwood BBQ is delighted to be hosting our second annual beer dinner featuring The Bruery. As many of you know, for special dinners we like to change things up from the BBQ that you are familiar with. For this particular evening we have planned a six course molecular gastronomy dinner. For those of you unfamiliar with this style of cooking, we’re taking familiar ingredients and reintroducing them to you using a host of advanced cooking techniques and equipment.

Because of the experimental nature of the beers produced by The Bruery we thought it appropriate to pair their beers with this style of food. Patrick Rue and his team will be on hand to guide you through the beers.
