La Chouffe Beer Dinner at Monk’s Kettle on April 7

Duvel Green as an aperitif

The last beer dinner I attended at Monk’s Kettle was a media-only event showcasing Sam Adams’ Utopias (and then some), but this is a regular series at Monk’s: five course, beer-paired feasts paired with either the brewmaster or a rep from the featured distillery walking you through each beer. The next one is May 5th with none other than Allagash Brewing and its founder, Rob Tod. Make your reservations now as they’ll be gone quickly.

These dinners are pricey, $95 per person (usually for five courses and six beers), especially compared to other multi-course feasts around town, but they’re unique. Pairings are extremely thought out on the part of the experts at Monk’s, including Exec Chef, Kevin Kroger, while direct interaction with and stories from brewery founders is a rare treat.

I attended the Brassiere d’Achouffe Beer Dinner on April 7 with a Duvel rep (a Belgium native herself) walking us through mostly La Chouffe beers, plus a couple other Duvel products: an aperitif of Duvel Green and dessert finish of Ommegang’s Three Philosophers (Ommegang was bought by Duvel in 2005).

The tiny pub was packed with other beer aficionados and by the end of a nearly four hour dinner, was pleasantly rowdy. If I thought my stomach could handle another decadent meal like this (and even if it couldn’t), I’m tempted to join the Allagash dinner… get on their email list for news of surprise guest breweries at upcoming beer dinners.
