Chris Flynn and the folks at Hailey's Harp and Pub in Metuchen are planning a first-ever beer dinner. The date is set for Monday, January 18, 2010. As details of the menu and beers are finalized, The PubScout--who will emcee the event--will keep you posted. There may also be a very special event upcoming before that, but mum's the word until we see if the details can be worked out. If and when the event becomes reality, you'll learn about it here.
Just a tip: I visited Costco last week, and while the Senior Buffet was again outstanding, I picked up a case of Kirkland Beers. There are four styles in this case, which sells for $17.99. A German Lager, a Pale Ale, a Hefeweizen and an Amber Ale. The information on the product indicates that the East Coast version is made in Utica, NY, which usually hints at F.X. Matt. Gordon Biersch supposedly brews the Left Coast variety. The beers are surprisingly good and and eminently drinkable. The Hefeweizen is particularly good, and if you broil up some tilapia and side dishes, you'll have a meal fit for a king. All things considered, for $18, you will not go wrong. Here's another opinion, but you're certainly capable of googling "Kirkland Beers" on your own
Cheers until next time!
