It seemed like an unlikely prospect -- a beer dinner at a French restaurant. But, liking Belgian beer, I joined a friend for a special beer dinner featuring beers from the Flying Dog Brewery. We were not disappointed. The beers were delicious, accompanied by a short presentation by representatives of the brewery, and paired to the courses. The first course was crabmeat in a pastry shell (it was so delicious we had a second one) paired with a blonde beer. Next was a very lovely salad with peaches and an equally suitable beer. Then, a shrimp dish followed by the main course of a small filet and a small lamb chop. The food was beautifully prepared and presented, and just delicious. The grand finale was a small Belgian waffle cut in half with chocolate sauce on one half and fresh strawberries on the other. And that was served with a special ale that had a sweetness that complemented the dessert. Can't wait for the next special dinner at Praline.
