Dogfish Head's "A Hop Eclipse Now" beer dinner series comes to Indiana

The Temper Grille is hosting one of the beer dinners featuring Dogfish Head's hoppy line up.


Posted on March 22, 2014 at 2:41 p.m.

Matt Johnson from Indiana Beverage is teaming up with Nick Vitalo of Dogfish Head and the Temper Grille to bring you an explosive celebration of the off-centered, hop-centric beer of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.

While they are well-known fro brewing "off-centered" ales, there is one old-world style they have completely embraced.  The IPA (India Pale Ale) has been a favorite style of Sam Calagione and his crew since the beginning, and they've come up with several ways to put their own fingerprint on this style.

Through the months of February and March, they are celebrating their innovative IPA lineup with dozens of IPA events across the county.  Three of these such events will take place in our area -  Tuesday, March 25th in Valparaiso, IN at the Tomato Bar; Thursday, March 17 in Roanoke, IN at Joseph Decuis, and the closest event will take place at the Temper Grille in Granger, IN, on Wednesday, March 26, beginning at 6:00 PM. 

Here is the menu:

Reception

Peach tartlets and hummus  paired with - Aprihop (7% ABV, IBUs 50)

First Course

Seared Maple Leaf Farm Duck breast lightly smoked with a cherry ale reduction  paired with Indian Brown Ale (7.2% ABV, IBUs 50)

Second Course

Grilled Skirt Steak tostada with avocado tomatillo sauce & roasted salso Roja  75 Minute IPA (7.5% ABV)

Third Course

Blackened Scallop with mango chutney  paired with 90 Minute IPA (9% ABV, IBUs 90)

Fourth Course

Chicken thigh skewers with spicy peanut sauce  paired with Burton Baton (10% ABV, IBUs 70)

Fifth Course

Housemade chocolate truffle dipped bacon strip  paired with 120 Minute IPA (15% - 20% ABV, IBUs 120)

One of these beers will be run through a special Dogfish Head invention called the Randall.  This is a double barrel filter that can be connected directly to the tap and filled with flavor enhancing ingredients such as hops.

Tickets are $75 per person and reservations can be made by contacting the restaurant at 574-273-0443.
