What you missed: NA Exchange beer dinner with NABC on Monday, June 27.

The Greeting Glass was NABC Strathpeffer (Gruit Ale), followed by a Starter of house-made bourbon beer cheese and fresh pretzel bread, paired with NABC Community Dark (Dark Mild). The camera lens wasn't quick enough to capture the pretzel; here is the fresh fruit salad with local mixed lettuce, feta, marinated onion, sunflower kernels, cucumber, and fresh fruit tossed in raspberry vinaigrette, with NABC/De Struise/Louisville Beer Store Naughty Girl (India Blonde Ale).

Entree: Grilled Pork Medallions in a fresh pineapple mango salsa, garlic, smashed potatoes, and seasonal vegetable medley, with NABC Henna (Black IPA).

NABC Brewmaster Jared Williamson enjoys his last beer dinner at the helm. Beer pairings from Jared and Richard Atnip were spot on. Former Bank Street chef Josh Lehman was on hand, too.

Dessert: Bread Pudding with walnuts, caramel, and fresh raspberries, with NABC Jasmine (Sweet Stout). The Parting Glass for the evening was NABC Hard Core Gore (Belgo-American IPA).
