This Week: Schlafly at The Big Hunt, Indian Food at Little Miss Whiskey’s, BrewDog at ChurchKey & Magic Hat at The Melting Pot
Our bodies are reeling from last week's SAVOR-related mayhem. Those of you who took advantage of all the great beer in the District may want to consider putting your post-SAVOR detox plans on hold a week when you check out the rundown of this week's events. For further details on any event, click on it in the calendar.
Monday St. Louis Beer Company co-founder Dan Kopman will be at The Big Hunt for a happy hour featuring several of his award-winning Schlafly beers including Schlafly Kölsch, a 2010 World Beer Cup Gold Medal Winner. As a delicately flavored, low-ABV beer style that originated in Cologne, Germany, a Kölsch would be an excellent choice for anyone still hurting from last week's revelry. Also available will be Schlafly APA (American Pale Ale), the just-released Schlafly AIPA (American India Pale Ale), and bottles from the Schlafly Reserve series.
Tuesday at Little Miss Whiskey's, Mike Farahbakhshian will be preparing curries and grilling lamb saag, malai kofta and other Indian treats. The bar has a nice bottle list (which we lauded during Snowmageddon) with several beers that will pair well with the spicy dishes. If you want to give your brain as much of a workout as your taste buds, stick around for "Big Curry Trivia" which starts at 8PM.
Wednesday you can meet BrewDog co-founder James Watt and sample his boundary-pushing beers from Scotland. On draft will be BrewDog / Stone Brewing Company collaboration Bashah, BrewDog / Mikkeller collaboration Devine Rebel, and BrewDog's Tokio, Punk IPA, Zeitgeist, 5AM Saint, and Dogma. On casks straight from Scotland will be Hardcore IPA, Paradox Smokehead, Paradox Isle of Arran, and Paradox Springbank. Odds are James will bring in a few big guns to share as well.
Friday, if your body is ready for it, you can treat yourself to a four-course beer pairing dinner at The Melting Pot with Magic Hat. The menu of fondue dishes prepared with Magic Hat beers includes Lucky Kat, Magic Hat #9, Circus Boy, and Wacko.
