Three ATL Beer Dinners this week starting tonight!

This was a fun one at TAP with Red Brick. Check out the ones below!
Beer dinners are the shiiizzznit!

Any time I hear about a beer dinner—you know, those culinary events hosted by restaurants that strategically pair their fare with some of the most delicious beers on the planet—I need to show love. Between the Steinbeck’s Ale House Annual Hanukkah v. Christmas Beer Dinner going on tonight in Decatur, to Wednesday’s Big Tex joint with Sierra Nevada (Downtown Decatur) and Wing Cafe & Tap House’s on Friday in Marietta, you have three ways to reward yourself for surviving another crazy year!
Here are the three beer dinners below direct from the source, including the menu, time, location, and ticket price.
Merrily Indulge!

The Scoop: Sierra Nevada and I go way back because, simply, they brew their ass off! The last dinner they did at Big Tex (who is equally gangster on with the pots and pans) was phenomenal. (Check out my coverage here.) I doubt this will be any less. Here is the official description: On Wednesday, December 18 at 7 p.m., Big Tex Decatur will host a beer dinner with one of the country’s top craft breweries, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. Head Chef Rick Watson of Big Tex Decatur has prepared four courses alongside a selection of award winning Sierra Nevada brews.  Patrons of the dinner will indulge in a seasonally inspired menu that includes Smoke Braised Short Ribs and a Fried Banana Split. For $50 (excluding tax and gratuity), guests will enjoy four courses including full bottles and pints of beer.

The Scoop: My dude Ryan Bing who runs the happily independent Wing CafĂ© knows how to throw down, so see for yourself. There are two casks of both the Festive and Wake n’ Bake being poured from Georgia’s top two breweries, Terrapin and SweetWater, so you know the beer will be on point. To add, there will be a guest appearance by "Bad Santa" so why not? If you pre-pay via Eventbrite, you get $5 off too.
