The marriage of food and wine is a beautiful thing. The perfect pairing is equal parts art and science, and a successful combination is nothing short of heavenly. However, there is a less explored counterpart: the synergy between food and beer. The craft beer movement has brought us brews of great complexities, and a well-tasted connoisseur treats the beverage with the same respect and delicacy as he or she would with wine: first exploring the aroma before taking a small sip to detect subtle notes and flavors.
This Saturday, the 22nd, you are invited to dine at the Rathskellar at the Seelbach for their Oktoberfest Beer vs. Wine Dinner. Talk beer with Lori Beck and Tyler Trotter from the Louisville Beer Store, or discuss wine with Julie DeFriend, sommelier of the Seelbach’s Oakroom. Above all, educate yourself about the wonderful world of food and beverage pairings of all types.
This event takes place from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm. For reservations or pricing and menu information, call (502) 585-9292.
