Playalinda Brewing Company will host its inaugural Brix Project Beer Dinner Monday, May 29. For the first time since opening, the brewery will close its doors to the public to make way for this gastronomic gathering. The evening will feature a four-course meal, developed under the culinary direction of Brix Project Executive Chef, Justin Medina. At the heart of the experience will be Playalinda’s craft beer, hand-picked to pair with the flavor profiles of each new course, and served up by Playalinda’s Brewmaster himself, Ron Raike.
Only 47 tickets have been issued, making the up close and personal behind the scenes access to the brewery part of the appeal of the evening. Both Raike and Medina will be on hand throughout the evening to discuss the food and beer pairing, along with an open-format for questions and more.
“Great food can really enhance the flavors of a well crafted beer, and vice versa,” said Raike. “The goal is to take what we’re doing to a whole new level, and demonstrate how a solid pairing can change the way we experience what we’re eating and drinking.”
The menu will consist of a Tuna Tartare appetizer, followed by a second course featuring Lamb Lollipops. The entrée, Blue Cheese Crusted Filet, will be followed by a dessert course. Beer pairings and other beverage offerings are still under wraps, but will be shared through the events Facebook page as the menu continues to develop. Tickets are available now, and can be purchased online at PlayalindaBrewingCompany.com
