Danish for a Day: April 15th Beer Dinner

Last year was the year of the beer dinner. Three high profile American brewers/owners flew into Toronto to host great evenings filled with terrific food and unbelievable beers.

Garrett Oliver from Brooklyn Brewery, Sam Calagione from Dogfish Head, and Phin DeMink from Southern Tier all showcased their products and helped raise the bar for beer dinners here in Ontario.

The Roland and Russell Import Agency were behind the Southern Tier dinner last April, and almost a year to the day of that one they have announced plans to bring some world class Danish beers to Toronto for another highly anticipated dinner, at the one of the best beer bars in the world - Beerbistro.

Here is the press release:
Beerbistro and Roland + Russell proudly invite you to a great evening celebrating Danish cuisine and craft beer on April 15th.

Throughout the evening, Brian Morin and his team will be offering eight courses highlighting a chef’s interpretation of traditional and modern Danish cuisine. Each dish will be perfectly matched with one of eight spectacular beers being specially brought in for this event. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to taste beers from two of Denmark’s finest breweries – Norrebro Bryghus and Mikkeller. One of the world’s leading beer experts, Canada’s own Stephen Beaumont will provide an unbiased and passionate sketch of Denmark’s vibrant craft beer landscape.

Tentatively confirmed for this evening is Anders Kissmeyer, the man behind Nørrebro Bryghus and one of Denmark’s most recognized artisanal brewers. Featured beers are: Mikkeller’s Warrior IPA, Jackie Brown, Beer Geek Brunch, Stone Alesmith and Nørrebro’s La Granja, Skargaards Porter, Paske Bock and Old Odense.

To close this evening on a high note, a special beer will be served as a nightcap. We are leaving the name of the beer a mystery, but we can assure you that you won’t be disappointed.

Tickets go on sale March 27th and are available at a cost of $120 plus applicable taxes and gratuities. To purchase tickets, please contact: Kathleen McGinn or Cheri Dueck at 416.861.9872

As part of the lead up to this dinner, I will be reviewing a bottle of Mikkeller's Jackie Brown American Brown Ale, offering a glimpse into only one of the terrific beers that will be on hand on April 15th.
