A Beverage Battle Royale

Brian Golden - Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Wine dinners are always fun, and beer dinners are all the rage.  But a five course beer vs. wine dinner?  Now that is just downright awesome.  And that is exactly what we are serving up for you next Thursday, November 1st at Bella Aquila in Eagle.  It is gonna be grapes against grog in a knock-down, drag out battle to win your palate.

Chef David Knickrehm is preparing a gourmet five course autumn menu, and each course has been paired with one beer and one wine, carefully selected to make for the best fusion possible.  Brian Golden, Education Manager for Hayden Beverage, will be battling from the wine corner, while Andy Leathers, Crooked Fence Brewing co-owner and all around beer lover, will be throwing punches from the beer corner.  The reasoning for each pairing will be explained and guests will be asked to vote on which selection reigns supreme for each course.  Never before tried in Boise, this is sure to be a slug fest of tastes and wits, so get your ringside seat today!

To learn about the complete menu and to make your reservations, please contact Bella Aquila @ 938-1900.  Dinner is $75 per person for 5 courses, 5 beers and 5 wines.  Tax and gratuity not included.  The fun begins at 6pm.
