Artisan Brews will Chase Your Winter Blues
Your winter blues will melt away once you taste the excellent selection of Pennsylvania specialty beers poured especially for you at The Settlers Inn on Saturday, February 23 during “Artisan Brews to Chase Away the Winter Blues.”
This not-to-be-missed culinary experience for foodies and beer enthusiasts will feature a delicious 4-course dinner highlighting locally grown and produced ingredients paired with PA’s most celebrated microbrews.
“The evening will merge two exciting areas in the world of cuisine: Pennsylvania food and beer,” says food expert Sam Cohen. “Pennsylvania has a long and distinguished culinary history and The Settlers Inn continues this tradition every day through its use of high quality local ingredients.”
Cohen, Director of the Center for the Study of Wine and Food at Drexel University, will provide Settlers’ dinner guests with information about Pennsylvania food and beer. “The recent trend towards microbrewing has put Pennsylvania at the forefront of brewing in America,” says Cohen. “Pennsylvania beers have been recognized around the world for their quality.”
The February 23 event will feature samplings of Stoudt’s American Pale Ale from Adamstown, PA; Victory Brewing Prima Pils from Downingtown, PA; Sly Fox Odyssey Imperial IPA from Royersford, PA; and Troeg’s Dead Reckoning Porter and Troegenator Double Bock from Harrisburg, PA.
Settlers Inn Executive Chef Grant Genzlinger has selected a stellar menu of local delicacies to accompany the brews including smoked Blooming Grove brook trout mousse, Jaimeson Farms lamb and rosemary sausage with house-made beer mustard, Shaffer Farms beer braised venison with butternut squash gratin, topped off with a dessert of Victory Storm King Stout ice cream with Pennsylvania chocolate covered pretzels.
The Settlers Inn will also offer a “Chase the Winter Blues” lodging package for the evening of February 23, which includes two seatings at the artisan beer dinner, overnight accommodations in a deluxe room featuring a king- or queen-sized bed, plus breakfast. Cost of the lodging package is $350 including tax and service.
