Meddlesome Moth will host a special beer dinner featuring Real Ale Brewing Company’s Mysterium Verum barrel-aged series Monday, Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. with Erik Ogershok, brewmaster at Real Ale, leading the evening.
Real Ale’s Mysterium Verum is a series of experimental beers that the company has been working on for several years by aging select beers in oak barrels, stainless steel barrels or a combination of the two. This beer dinner may be the first time for seven Mysterium Verum beers to be showcased at a single event.
