Herb roasted hen and Fontina toasts
Heaps of hops give this pale lager a bracing, herbal bite over layers of soft and smooth malt flavor. This refreshing combination makes Prima a classy quencher in the tradition of the great pilsners of Europe.

and lemon vinaigrette
Strong and sensual, this golden, Belgian-style ale glows. The richness of German malts and Belgian yeast are tempered by a sparkling approach and light body, with abundant herbal, fruity notes.

citrus sweet potato puree
Celebrating the pioneering spirit of old Horace ‘Hop’ Wallop and those who dare mighty, adventurous things, this is a vivid, robust ale. A homage to the hop harvest, expect loads of aromatic splendor and bitter beauty.

This heavyweight battle between fresh, Yakima Valley hops and dark, roasted malts is resolved harmoniously as the flavors merge to deliver complex satisfaction with a warming edge.

With a huge, Pacific Northwest hop aroma and character upfront, Storm King Stout subsides into massive, roast malt complexity. Rich and substantial, this beer will warm your heart.
The dinner is 6:30 pm at the Cumming Taco Mac location. We begin with a casual reception beer and passed hors d' oeuvres, so if you are running late, don't freak out. Dinner is sat at 7:00 pm, so if you get there at 6:50 pm let's say, you are fine.
The other important things that I have for you today involve some fun casks that are waiting to be drank. We have a Heavy Seas Winter Storm at the South Park store in Charlotte this Wednesday. Friday we have a Bell's Double Cream Stout at Lindbergh. This is a first, so if you like great stouts, rare Brewniversity credits or BOTH, you are in luck. I will not be there though, because I will be getting into a cask of Chattanooga Brewing Co.'s Hill City Stout in Chattanooga. Yes, I am going to be in Charlotte and Chattanooga this week, so you may not hear from me the rest of the week.
This Saturday is the Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting. If you have tickets, I will see you there. If you don't have ACAT tickets, then you are SOL. It is sold out. Get ready for next year, because it is always the Saturday before the Super Bowl every year. Bu you can still get tickets for the Brew Your Cask Off event at SweetWater on March 10th. In case you haven't been to that before, it is quite an experience.
Alright folks. That is about all the time I have for today. Have a great week, and get out there and drink some damn beer.
