Compared to wine dinners, beer dinners are virtually non-existent.
In the past 12 months, I doubt I could recall writing about even eight suds and supper events.
Yet if you look around any restaurant, especially casual ones, you’ll see far more people drinking beer with dinner than wine. So it’s odd more restaurateurs don’t see the potential of pairing beer with food in the traditional course-by-course format silently reserved for wine.
Harvest is aiming to change that, albeit slowly.
On Aug. 7, it had its second beer dinner of the year (which, if you do the math, is exponentially higher than any other restaurant of its caliber), partnering this time with Bluegrass Brewing Co.’s production brewer, Eileen Martin. (The production company is not affiliated with the brewery-restaurant company, though its bottled beer is sold at those sites.)
