If you’re up for one last taste of the snow this season, head to Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa this Friday, September 28, where brewmaster Chuck Hahn (above; photo supplied) will be hosting a four-course beer dinner.
Then menu features seven beers with dishes from the resort’s executive chef, Greg Pieper, kicking off with a selection of canapés including chicken liver blueberry parfait, pear and mini lamb pies coupled with the local Kosciuszko Pale Ale.
That will be followed by an entree of sweet pork cheeks with Queensland scallops, William pear and scallop cream, served with Hahn Premium Lager and Knappstein Reserve Lager.
The main dish is a 6+ wagyu sirloin with turnip puree, spinach cream, mini beef pie and red wine jus, served with James Squire Nine Tales Amber Ale and Stowaway IPA.
For dessert, expect chocolate delice, pistachio paste and raspberry with James Squire Jack of Spades Porter and New Norcia Abbey Ale.
Wines matching each course will also be offered. Tickets are $75 per person.
