Cask Beer & More Tonight at Gardina's

Has it already been a month? It has, which means it's time again for the 22nd installment of Gardina's Beer Bar Series. The featured brewery tonight (Tuesday, September 15) is Central Waters. Here's the rundown.

At 6 p.m., they'll tap a cask of Pumpkin Puppy Porter, a variation on Central Waters' Mudpuppy Porter that's been brewed with pumpkin and dosed with pumpkin pie spices in the cask.

In addition to the cask beer, there'll be a mini-tap takeover with three other Central Waters beers on draft.
     • 2015 Bourbon Barrel Scotch Ale
     • Octoberfest Lager
     • Glacial Trail IPA

And if you'd like, you can pair the four CW beers with a four course tasting menu that's being prepared just for tonight. For $30, you get....

Course 1
Glacial Trail IPA
Paired with a spinach salad with fresh cherries, crumbled goat cheese, walnut-balsamic vinaigrette, and spiced pepitas.

Course 2
Octoberfest Lager
Paired with a wild mushroom & spinach risotto served over caramelized sweet potato, finished with sage oil & parmesan.

Course 3
Bourbon Barrel Scotch Ale
Paired with a braised beef short rib served over a kale and crisp prosciutto melange, finished with a pan jus lie.

Course 4
Pumpkin Puppy Cask Ale
Paired with a cinnamon roll served over a butternut squash puree with toasted macadamia nuts and drizzled with a maple bourbon frosting.

It all happens tonight beginning at 6 p.m. at Gardina's.
