Correction: We meet every second Monday of each Month.

That way the beer can mature properly between meetings B)

Just a quick update.

We are good to go for Thursday night. I'm working with the chef to sort out the pairings and will publish the menu tomorrow and will be different from the WABA menu. Basically it will be a 4 course meal with beers served with each course. WABA brewers have kindly (and accidentally?) donated 15 beers from 9 different WA breweries.

There are still plenty of seats so book now! Numbers for catering close tomorrow at noon.

Thanks for the RSVP's. We'll have a table for 20 setup in the back for us. There was enough left over beer from the WABA dinner to have more than a taste with this menu. 15 beers from 9 different WA breweries! But feel free to bring a beer to share if you like. Gala has also graciously made this a 5 course meal at the same price! While some of the dishes appear to be similar to the WABA dinner, a few changes have been made. Unfortunately, no suckling pig, but braised beef shank! Should be interesting.

Menu:

Canaps / Tapas

Ham & smoked Bean Tart

Herring on Kipfler Potato Salad

Welsh Rabbit

Gage Roads Pils, Jarrah Jacks Best Bitter, Little Creatures Rogers


pan-fried Cod And Snow Pea Risotto

with Fete Beer Crust and crisp Bacon

Feral White, Matilda Bay Redback, Billabong Wheat


Slow cooked Quail in Mexican Mole Sauce

Gage Roads Lager, Little Creatures Pale Ale, Matilda Bay Dogbolter


Braised Beef Shank with roasted Barley and Vegetables

served with a rich dark Jus and Celeriac Froth

Gage Roads IPA, Billabong Porter, Bootleg Raging Bull


Bread & Butter Pudding with Ginger Beer soaked Sultanas

and Stout Chocolate Sorbet

Ironbark Debilitator and Cherry Ale, Matso's Ginger Beer

I had a great night at the dinner - thanks for organising it Brian, well done ! It was a nice change on the usual WCB functions - not that I'm against standing around a barbie of course.

The food was fantastic and there were some interesting combinations with the beers. My favourite would have to be the Dogbolter and the Quail with Mole (chocolate and chilli - not the animal) sauce.

I think the best beer of the night was a ring-in brought by Sinkas . I can't remember the name of it (it was something clever, in french), but it was a sensational IIPA with the hops leaping out of the glass. It really left a lot of the micro/commercial offerings in its wake ! Nice work Case !
