1st Course

Baked Colorado Camembert

Spring Blossom Salad

 

Paired with

Joe’s Pilsner

A contemporary rendition of a classic style, Joe's is hopped with purpose: beautifully bitter and dry with an abundance of floral, Noble German hops.  Uber sessionable.  Utterly American.  This is Premiuim American Pilsner.

2nd Course

Spicy Thai Mussels, Clams & Scallops

Jasmine Rice

 

Paired with

White Rascal Witt

A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or "white" ale, this Rascal is unfiltered (yup, that's yeast on the bottom) and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel producing a refreshingly fruity thirst quencher.

3rd Course

Mustard Glazed Prime Sirloin

Garlic Roasted Potaotes, Asparagus, IPA Herb Butter

 

Paired with

Avery IPA

In the 1700s one crafty brewer discovered that a healthy dose of hops and an increased alcohol content preserved his ales during the long voyage to India (as depicted in our label) to quench the thirst of British troops. Today, Avery tips their hat to that historic innovation by brewing Colorado's hoppiest pale ale.   Avery IPA demands to be poured into your favorite

glass to truly appreciate the citrusy, floral bouquet and the rich, malty finish.

4th Course

Fraser Valley Red Forest Cake

Druken Cherrie Compote

 

Paired with

Reverend Stout

The Reverend, was created in tribute to the life of Sales Mgr. Tom Boogaard's grandfather, an ordained Episcopal Reverend. Tom was inspired by the life of his grandfather and wanted to create a tribute beer that contained his sterling traits. True to both our "small brewery, BIG BEERS" philosophy and to the spirit and character of the departed Reverend, this beer is strong willed, assertive, and pure of heart, a heart of candy sugar. It contains as many authentic imported Belgian specialty malts as the brewers could cram into our mash tun, and lots of Belgian dark candy sugar stirred into the brew kettle. A divinely complex and beautifully layered beer with hints of dark cherries, currants, and molasses, complimented by an underlying spiciness. Sinfully smooth considering the high alcohol content. Cellarable for up to 4 years.
