|The last Sierra Nevada beer dinner I went to at Taco Mac - Lindbergh was off the chain.|
The one tonight at Big Tex should be pretty damn good too!
One of my favorite events I love to do when it concerns ales and lagers is to indulge in a beer dinner. And as you can see from posts like this, whenever one comes up, I try my damnedest to announce, attend, and happily share my experience with my Cruisin’ For A Brewsin’ followers. There’s just something awesome about an executive chef putting his or her culinary genius to the test by creating dishes that perfectly complement the tasting complexities of specific beers. To add, courses could reach almost ten in number from one sitting!

I mean come on, the first four dishes including the amuse and Pale Ale sound mouthwatering, but check out this happy ending:
“Narwhal Imperial Stout with Hazelnut Mocha Torte-Hazelnut Meringue layered with Rich Chocolate and Espresso Cream.”
I never had Big Tex’s eats but judging by these food shots and planned menu, Rick and crew are no joke. All in all, this sounds like a cool early Valentine’s Day gift to me. (Look for more on my annual V-Day Guide coming soon!).
