BFM Beer Dinner
Thursday, March 20, 2014 - 6pm
Providence, RI, USA 02909
We have a great opportunity on our hands. Jerome of BFM was one of the first to really push the boundaries of aging beer by using wine and spirit barrels and we have him all to ourselves for this intimate beer dinner (and how many of these will he really host in the new england area never mind america).
the beers we will be working with include:
*Cuvee Alex Le Rouge
(10.276% ABV) Labeled as a "Jurassian" Imperial Stout.
*Abbaye de Saint Bon Chien 2012
(approximately 11.0% ABV, except for the 2005 vintage, which clocked in at 15% ABV) A strong, dark, wine-like beer released annually. Barrel-aged with a complex, sour character. While the primary batch for each year is blended from different barrels, in recent years ’Grand Cru’ versions selected from individual barrels have also been made available o the US market.
*Zymatore Sqrt 225
(5% ABV) barrel aged saison
(10% ABV) Eisbock
(8% ABV) Belgian Strong Dark Ale
this list is subject to change depending on how Bunited Imports feels the beers in the bright tanks finish. a final list will be posted before the dinner.
The dinner will be a five course meal at $90 per head. Dinner will start promptly at 6pm on Thursday March 20th.
