Murrays Belgian Beer dinner was on in Manly last night, & i thought i'd share the menu with those that couldn't go. Not to be mean or anything (much!), but just to show the sort of thing that Murrays are doing. I won't bother with giving a blow by blow account of the beers/food except to say that the standouts for me were-

*the barrel-aged Grand Cru. A whole different animal to the standard Grand Cru, far superior in my opinion.
*the barrel-aged Imperious. Probably the highlight of the night. Best beer, best food pairing.
*the Horror. An exercise in insanity. I actually couldn't finish mine, but the flavours were so intense & unique. Unreleasable (i imagine) commercially, it was ideal for a night like last night for people to try something genuinely crazy & special.

Foodwise, the beetroot-cured trout was the pick of the bunch for me.

All-in-all, a very enjoyable night. Great to see the the knowledge & passion for beer that Murray & Shawn& co so obviously have.
Highly recommended.
