Pairing beer with fine foods is a popular trend in the Hudson Valley and across New York State. Based on the strong response to its first Regional Beer Dinner earlier this year, Valley at The Garrison will offer a return event on April 3 at 7 p.m.
Valley’s Restaurants & Beverage Manager James Michael Brown has selected four unique regionally-produced beers to enhance the incredible combination of flavors Executive Chef Vincent Mocarski and the restaurant’s culinary-trained chefs have put together for this special evening. (Menu attached)
To start the meal, seasonal hors d’ouevres with be served with Plan Bee Farm Brewery Mattrazzo, a farm beer brewery in Fishkill produced entirely with New York hops; and roasted cauliflower soup accompanied with Two Roads NoLimit Hefeweizen, an artisan craft brewery featuring unique renditions of classic beer styles.
For the entrée, Long Island fluke will be served with Shmaltz Brewing Company’s Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner, a new and unique beer made in the Capital District; and smoked suckling pig roast is paired with Sloop Brewing Red C, a nanobrewery started out of a Poughkeepsie garage. Completing the meal is house-made chocolate doughnuts with vanilla bean ice cream and a beer float made from Sloop Brewing Black C.
“Since we opened in 2004, Valley has offered fine meals made with locally-sourced fresh foods and farm products,” Brown said. “We are continuing that tradition with our second regional Beer Dinner that will offer diners an informal, high-quality dining experience and expose them to new beers made in their own backyard paired with exceptional cuisine.”
