Farley's First Beer Dinner--(at Molly Maguire's, That Is)

Chef Steve Farley has wowed his share of palates, having served as Head Chef at the outstanding Artisan's Brewpub in Tom's River for many years. His culinary talents were part and parcel of the famous annual Oktoberfest Beer Dinners which still hold the record--115 attendees-- for beer dinner attendance in the state of NJ.
Chef Steve has since moved further north and is now tickling tastebuds and exercising enzymes at Molly Maguire's Blackpoint Inn in Rumson. 

As he promised, and now that he knows his way around his new scullery, he's serving up his first-ever Beer Dinner to welcome Spring in his new digs on Wednesday, April 24 at 7 PM--and, with the rarest, limited batch beers of Cricket Hill in the house, it looks to be a doozy.

Here's the menu:

1st Course
Warm Spring Asparagus and Mushroom Salad
Hop pickled spring garlic, wheat berries, Irish brown bread
Jersey Devil Red Ale 8.2% ABV

2nd course
Seared Viking Village Day Boat Scallop

$40.00 per person plus tax and gratuity
