Calendar check: Culinary Costume of American Artisan Ales at NABC on Monday, October 29.

To close October with pre-Halloween festivities, there’ll be our first ever beer dinner at Prost, NABC’s banquet and special events wing.

It is the Culinary Costume of American Artisan Ales, to be held on Monday, October 29. The dinner and beer pairing is a cooperative venture between NABC and two aspiring young culinary artists, Andy and Josh, although it should be noted that they’re doing most of the heavy lifting. Pricing and details have yet to be determined.

Andy provides this preview, with a disclaimer: “Cheese and the dessert aren’t quite finished, but we should have this done during the next week.”

Seared Diver Scallop, Orange Ginger Broth
-Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca

Heirloom Pumpkin Soup, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Apple
-Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale

Muscovy Duck Breast, Carrot Mousse, Carmelized Onion Duck Confit Bread Pudding, Duck Stock Reduction
-NABC Thunderfoot

(The Publican says: “We’re shopping for microbrewed Flanders Red/Brown/Sour as a palate refreshing beer choice.”)

Capriole Juliana (?)
-Ommegang Ommegeddon

Capriole Mont St. Francis (?)
-NABC Hoptimus

Carmelized Pear, Vanilla Ice Cream
-Allagash Curieux

(Parting glass)
-NABC Malcolm's Old Setters Ale

Andy again: “We are going to add a small garnish to each cheese and the dessert ... we know the flavors we want to use we just don't know exactly how we are presenting it yet (tart, pie, etc).”

Mark your calendars. This one is going to be special.
