On June 28, another great matching of beers and food Oakmont National Pub Beer Event posterwas held at the Oakmont National Pub in Havertown. Chef Lou did an outstanding job of creating special dishes with beer infused sauces and garnish that matched the beer parings with each course. (The savory filet with La Chouffe reduction was awesome.) Beers included Hoegaarden and Paulaner Hefe Weiss, Left Hand Brewing’s ESB and La Chouffe Belgian Ale. Manager Brendan Goggin reached out to Shangy’s Beer Distribution for Chapeau Framboise Lambic and the venerable Young’s Double Chocolate Stout to go with the luscious chocolate dessert.
All had a great time as I gave away t-shirts and other beer paraphernalia to those who answered the beer trivia questions. The grand prize winner walked away with a wall-sized Young’s bar mirror. Brendan suggested that we may do another special beer dinner this fall. I will keep you updated.
