Posted by bevo vino on 2010-10-05 09:40:11
|On October 12, 2010, Swirl Wines presents St. James Cheese owner Richard Sutton and Morgan Stroud from Purveyor of Fine Wines for a wine, beer, and cheese pairing night featuring the premium MOA boutique beers and Allan Scott wines from New Zealand.|
The production of theses unique brews by winemaker Josh Scott starts off quite normally. Josh brews the beer using mainly local hops, malt, wheat, or barley. Then he veers off the well-worn path. Josh bottles the beer, adds a dose of yeast and sugar and then seals the cap. Just like champagne, the bubbles produced by this second fermentation are dissolved in the liquid. The result is a beer unlike any other--clear, exquisite, and bottle-fermented. From 6-8 p.m., we'll be tasting 4 of the MOA beers and as an added treat, winemaker Josh Scott's Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc paired with 6 different cheeses. This is a seated tasting and is limited to 20 participants. Reservation and prepayment are required. Call 504.304.0635 for info and reservations. $20.
