Octoberfest Beer Dinner — Friday, October 14
The Settlers Inn and Grant and Jeanne in particular are delighted to welcome Carol Stoudt founder and brewmaster of Stoudt’s Brewing Company in Adamstown, Pa.
Grant and Carol’s relationship goes back more than twenty years. Grant developed an interest in the history of brewing in Pennsylvania and traveled the state to find small independent brewers to be represented on the Settler Inn’s newly formed beer menu.
Some of the breweries he located had an amazing tradition like Yuengling in Pottsville, and Rolling Rock, Stegmaier, and Pennsylvania Pilsner but the hands down favorite for Grant was discovering the new microbrews like Dock Street Brewing Co. in Philadelphia and especially Stoudt’s in Adamstown.
Stoudt’s was (and still is) gathering many gold and silver medals for beer making on the national level. We were thrilled to offer these award winning beers and ales at The Settlers Inn and thus began the long tradition of tasting the likes of Scarlet Lady, American Pale Ale, Double Honey Maiboch, and Oatmeal Stout Today Carol is known as the “Queen of Hops” and we are exited for you to meet her at our Octoberfest dinner on October 14.
Carol has selected Fat Dog Oatmeal Stout, Stoudt’s Fest, American Pale Ale, Scarlet Lady ESB, and Triple Belgian Abbey Ale,that complement Grant and Chef Ben’s four course special menu which includes pasture raised chicken, venison, a selection of house made charcuteries that reflects the Pennsylvania October tradition and pairs beautifully with these beers.
The American Pale was just honored with the highest star rating and one of the top three in the United States by The New York Times tasting panel. Join us for the Carol and Grant reunion and learn more about the brewing process from brewmaster icon Carol Stoudt. The gathering time is 6:30 and cost is $65.
