Beer Lover’s Dinner a Great Success

Last Friday at this time our culinary team, along with Hoops Brewing was only minutes away from opening the doors for our annual Beer Lover’s Dinner. This year’s dinner was a great success! With numerous compliments on the food as well as the brews, this may have been one of the best ones yet.

This year’s menu featured mouth-watering beer steamed Maine mussels, beer sous vide beef brisket and turkey and pork beervarian sausage stuffed raviolis. Of course, what is dinner without dessert? The night was topped off with a fabbri cherry beeramisu!
