I would comment but aspidites told me to behave.


He hasn’t told me to, so can I point out, fish, lobster, mushrooms... and consecration?

I guess I should be glad my cousin’s getting married that weekend and I wasn’t able to make it, because apparently my RB membership would get revoked, since there’s no way I’d pay for that menu and pairings.


You must be 3/4 retarded. Seafood is complimented by acids, in this case consecration.

There are other acidic sours that wouldn’t overwhelm the delicate flavor of the fish.

I take it that you have never had Sturgeon before.

I have had it. Mostly smoked, but still it is a mild flavor compared to that of Consecration.

We obviously have very different palates, Consecration is very soft and delicate.

Not sure how personal attacks and insults are warranted by my finding the idea of mushrooms and lobster butter an unappetizing pairing with consecration, but hey, if that’s how you troll roll, then so be it.

I’m also missing the ingenuity in a garlic brined pork chop with coffee and port being paired up with the hoppy stone brew, but again... I guess I’d be gladly putting my $85 towards a good meal and beers were I coming to RBSG.

The bigger point here is why you felt the need to denigrate the menu of a dinner you’re not even attending.

Cropped out the nesting, but...

Because the thread was posted in the public forums, I read it, looked at the menu and was less than impressed. Then read the comment about someone being asked not to talk about it if they didn’t like it, which seems silly.

If a beer/food pairing looks sketchy, I see no reason why there shouldn’t be public discourse about it. Especially when people are being chastised and made to feel guilty about not shelling out $85 for it.

He is also the same guy that said Chez Panisse is crappy food so his opinion is not remotely valid when it comes to this topic.

I didn’t say crappy food, just overrated. Which is how I felt when I went there years ago.

Coming from a guy notorious for having very clearly ’differing’ opinions on some notable beers, I find the quick dismissal of someone else’s opinions to be rather humorous. I rather thought the point of the site was that we have different tastes and opinions and that should be embraced. Maybe I was the only one who got that memo.
