Game of Thrones fans and beer lovers, rejoice! Dinner is coming.
To celebrate the debut of their new Game of Thrones-inspired beer, Fire and Blood Red Ale, Brewery Ommegang is hosting a dinner event so bold it’ll take two chefs to create. Brewery Ommegang’s Executive Chef Evan Brown will face off against Chef Teddy Folkman from Granville Moore Restaurant in Washington, DC, to serve a Game of Thrones-inspired dinner at Café Ommegang on Saturday, March 15.
Guests will enjoy a six-course beer-pairing dinner and take home a bottle of the new Fire and Blood Red Ale with custom glassware. Guests will also have the chance to buy additional bottles of Fire and Blood prior to the beer’s release at the brewery on Sunday, March 16 at noon, a full 18 days before the national beer release on March 31.
The menu for this six-course dinner includes:
-French onion soup consummé with brûléed gruyere foam paired with Rare Vos
-Parsley and roasted root vegetables with a roasted marrow and caper vinaigrette and sourdough toast paired with Hennepin
-Seared quail, ancho chili and blood orange gastric, fried livers, frisse, and a smoky essence paired with Fire and Blood Red Ale
-Beef heart, brisket and Abbey Bolognese with black pepper pasta and poached egg paired with Abbey Ale
-Lavender-smoked steel head trout with poblano and cauliflower purée and watermelon radish paired with Houblon Chouffe
-Shortcake with sweet yogurt, toasted peanuts, dried fruit, and blood orange caramel paired with Glimmerglass.
The evening begins with a beer tasting at 6:30 PM followed by dinner at 7 PM. Reservations are $125 per person and may be purchased in person at the Brewery Ommegang gift shop or by calling (607) 544-1800 ext. 832 between noon and 5PM.
