Celebrating 150 Years of Leinies
First Course: Flatbread-Brat, Goat Cheese and Caramelized Onions served with Canoe Paddler-Kölsch beers are crisp, clean, light-bodied beers that originated in Cologne, Germany in the early 1900s. The brilliantly clear Canoe Paddler features subtle hints of lemon grass and white pepper. There is also a touch of rye, which provides a nice clean, dry finish, helping to maximize refreshment. 2013 Great American Beer Festival Gold: Leinenkugel’s Canoe Paddler

Second Course:  Our own Gumbo
(Mardi Gras is coming!), rich with Andouille Sausage and Chicken served with Bavarian Dunkel-a medium bodied dark lager brewed with notes of cocoa, toasted malt and mild winter spices that blend perfectly with a hint of berries. Its rich taste and clean finish make it a great addition to a winter’s day spent cozying up by a fire.
Dessert: Cheesecake with Berries served with Berry Weiss (of course!)-Crisp weiss beer gets a little lift from an enticing blend of blackberries, elderberries and loganberries that are all indigenous to Wisconsin. Winner of the 2004 Bronze Medal and 2007 Gold Medal for Fruit and Vegetable Beer at the Great American Beer Festival®.
The cost is $25 per person for all beverages and food and possibly some bling!  Please call for reservations as seating is limited.

I can’t believe it’s the end of the month!  Melissa, William and I are planning February’s beer and wine dinners.  This is the 150th anniversary of Joseph Leinenkugel’s Brewery so it seems like a good time to feature their beers.

“In May 1867, the Leinenkugel family brewery was founded in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin by Jacob Leinenkugel. He was a family man driven by an iron work ethic, and he knew that his German family heritage would play an integral part of his brewery’s success. Today, the sixth generation of Leinenkugels continues to brew some of the same family-inspired recipes that Jacob poured his heart and soul into. Over the years, our family has grown and so has our brewery, but our history and heritage remain at the forefront. ”

The February Beer Dinner is Wednesday, February 15 at 6:30pm.

First Course: Flatbread-Brat, Goat Cheese and Caramelized Onions served with Canoe Paddler-Kölsch beers are crisp, clean, light-bodied beers that originated in Cologne, Germany in the early 1900s. The brilliantly clear Canoe Paddler features subtle hints of lemon grass and white pepper. There is also a touch of rye, which provides a nice clean, dry finish, helping to maximize refreshment.

Second Course:  Our own Gumbo (Mardi Gras is coming!), rich with Andouille Sausage, Shrimp and Chicken served with Bavarian Dunkel-a medium bodied dark lager brewed with notes of cocoa, toasted malt and mild winter spices that blend perfectly with a hint of berries. Its rich taste and clean finish make it a great addition to a winter’s day spent cozying up by a fire.
