Beer Vs. Wine Dinner at the Brooks

Posted By on Tue, Feb 22, 2011 at 10:31 AM


On Thursday, February 24th, it’s the Beer Vs. Wine Dinner at the Brushmark at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.

Each of the five courses will be paired with one wine and one beer. Diners will vote on their favorites, and the winner will be announced at the meal’s conclusion.

According to Andrew Adams, the Brushmark’s chef de cuisine, “Beer has been the tiny, fine print on the menu. We wanted to bring it out front.” To help revamp the restaurant’s beer list, a tasting was held, led by Southwestern Distributing’s Steve Barzizza. It was Barzizza who suggested the competitive dinner.

Barzizza’s son Mike (Tennessee’s only cicerone) will take the beer side, while it’s Jason Doble of Trinchero Family Estates for wine. Steve Barzizza will serve as the referee, promising, “There will be no betting. There will be no fighting.”

Among the courses: a soy-roasted grouper to be paired with a Barbar Honey Ale and Joel Gott Riesling and Colorado lamb with a Gulden Draak and the Show Malbec. For dessert, there will chocolate bombes and almond crumbles to be served with Young’s Double Chocolate Stout and Terra d’Oro Port.

Beer Vs. Wine Dinner at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art Thursday, February 24th, 7 p.m. $60. Reservations: 544-6225.
