Advance notice: Beer and food pairing with the Curmudgeon at Caffe Classico, June 29.

If you appreciate good coffee and are not aware of Caffe Classico, it’s time for you to take note of Tommie Mudd’s continentally styled establishment at 2144 Frankfort Avenue in Louisville.

As if elegant Italian-roast espresso and a solid café food menu of soups, salads and paninis weren’t enough, Tommie also offers short lists of beer (including Duvel and often Chimay) and wine to accompany tasty and eclectic evening entertainment.

I love Tommie’s place and go there whenever possible. You cannot step through the doors and fail to be reminded of the European café experience.

On Thursday, June 29th at 7:00 p.m., I’ll be emceeing a beer and food pairing at Caffe Classico, something that Tommie and I schemed up last week when I stopped in for a ristretto.

The information below (and estimated $25 per person price) is tentative.

1. Pilsner: Damm Barcelona or Czechvar
Olives, sardines, tapas, etc.

2. American-style microbrew: Boulder Sundance Amber
Sushi, California rolls.

3. Wheat Beer: Paulaner Hefe-Weizen

5. Trappist Belgian Ale: Westmalle Tripel
