On Monday, January 29, at 6:30 p.m., I’ll be doing a “Stratto's Beer Dinner with the Publican,” the first of three upcoming beer and food pairings that you are cordially invited to attend.
The first is at Stratto's, which occupies a marvelously adapted 19th-century home at 318 W. Lewis & Clark Parkway in Clarksville. The price is $30 per person. Call Stratto's at 945-3496 for information and reservations, or contact Roger at NABC.
Information will be coming soon about a Belgian and appetizer pairing at Caffe Classico in Louisville on Saturday, February 10, and the much anticipated Extreme Belgian dinner at Bistro New Albany on Monday, March 5.
In beer terms, these have been designed in ascending order of intensity. The Stratto's evening will feature a four-course meal, with seven beers (beginner’s level complexity), including two old favorites from NABC.
