The team that organized Chef N Brew late last year is at it again, this time bringing A Mardi Gras Craft Beer & Chef Feast. The event will take place on Fat Tuesday, February 12 beginning at 6 p.m. at the Strange Brewing Company location at 1330 Zuni Street.
The event is organized through a partnership between Strange Brewing Company, Chef Michael Long and BeerCraving. "There is a ton of excitement around craft beer and food right now," says Mike Burns from BeerCraving. "The enthusiasm for the recent Chef N Brew Festival is validation of that. We want to keep the beer and food energy high and constantly evolving in Denver."
The dinner will feature six dishes created by chef Michael Long, formerly of Aria, paired with the food friendly beers of Strange. "Creole cuisine is a perfect match for craft beer since you can play off the unique spices when pairing. We've also incorporated beer into many of the dishes to further reinforce the connection," says chef Michael Long.
Strange will debut their Krewe Beer which is a nod to the Bourbon Street concoction. Fresh lemon and lime zest offer a citrus kick but the showcase of the beer is passion fruit and rum. Passion fruit and rum-soaked oak spirals are added during secondary fermentation to round the beer out.
Tickets are $49, including tax and gratuity, and can be purchased at Strange Brewery or online at chefnbrewevents.com.
