Perhaps cognizant of potential guests’ worries about imbibing five courses worth of beer pairings before driving home from Middleton Place Restaurant, the venue is making sure its upcoming Braise & Brew dinner ends on a non-alcoholic note.
For dessert, attendees at the Jan. 26 event will be served caramel-apple doughnuts and glasses of Holy City’s Christmasly Spiced Scratch Root Beer.
Holy City’s head brewer, Chris Brown, collaborated with Middleton Place executive chef Brandon Buck to plan the menu for the fourth annual edition of the beer dinner. Other courses include a winter squash soup paired with a German winter lager; a ham hock ragout paired with a bacon-infused porter and brisket paired with stout.
According to Middleton’s website, “when possible, Holy City’s brews were used in the cooking process.” That includes mussels steamed in an IPA broth.
Tickets to the 6 p.m. meal are $85. To purchase, call 556-6020 or visit middletonplace.org.
