I have been thinking lately about going to a top tier fine dining restaurant and asking for a beer pairing to go with a one of those 3 hour 10 course tasting menus.
So I wanted to ask all you (that is the beer loving, food crazed, blogging public) if you had any ideas of restaurants where this would work. A lot of places will just stare at you and say – um we have Anchor Steam. Which is a fine beer but does not make a beer pairing.
Of course if they had the concept of beer pairings that would be great, but I was looking for more a great beer selection that would go well with their type of food. And overall I am not looking for brewpubs or gastropubs (both of which I love) this is more an established acclaimed restaurant that supports good beer and the concept of pairing said good beer with a tasting menu. One idea was Slanted Door.
