Oysters, pork, beef and duck are on the menu for an upcoming five-course beer dinner at Southend Brewery & Smokehouse.
The Jan. 29 meal, jointly sponsored by the restaurant and Charleston Culinary Tours, features house-brewed beers including a milk stout, IPA and pale ale (and cheese for dessert, so the evening isn’t completely carnivorous.) The event starts at 7 p.m., and tickets are priced at $60. Call 853-4677 for reservations, or book here.
Demonstrating that Charleston Restaurant Week doesn’t have the monopoly on discount dining, Liberty Tap Room & Grill’s scheduled a $50 five-course meal with 10 beer pairings for Monday night.
The menu for the Sept. 9 event includes steamed mussels; eggrolls stuffed with pimento cheese grits, pulled pork and turnip greens; monkfish medallions; beef wellington and raspberry panna cotta. The beers were brewed by Stone Brewing Co., a pale ale pioneer that’s now 17th on the list of top-selling breweries nationwide, and Mt. Pleasant’s Westbrook Brewing, featured this week in a News & Observer story about the Charleston craft beer scene.
Westbrook’s highly-regarded Mexican Coffee Cake stout – called “probably the state’s most hyped beer” by the N&O – will be served with dessert. The complete menu’s here.
For reservations, call 971-7777.
Holy City is spicing up its signature American porter for a Middleton Place Restaurant beer dinner that’s meant to serve as a counterpoint to its annual Braise & Brew event, a January celebration of heavy meats and dark beers. At Hot Nights & Holy City on Aug. 25, the menu includes fried chicken, grilled venison and a beer to make drinkers sweat themselves cool.
For its Savory Jalapeno Pluff Mud Porter, Holy City’s brewers added locally-grown, house-smoked jalapenos to the 5.5 ABV beer. The porter will be paired with house-cured pork belly and peach preserves.
Tickets to Hot Nights & Holy City are $75; the dinner runs from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. To purchase tickets, log on to middletonplace.org, or call 556-6020.
