Don’t Miss: Regional Beer Dinner at Valley at The Garrison, April 3

The Hudson Valley has plenty to offer in the way of locally produced craft beer, and the best way to try new ones is alongside a perfectly paired plate of smokey roast pork or decadent and fresh chocolate doughnuts.

Based on the strong response to its first Regional Beer Dinner earlier this year, Valley at The Garrison will offer a second round on, at 7 p.m. on April 3. The five-course dinner, with beer pairings, is $59.95 per person and seating is limited.

Valley’s restaurants and beverage manager, James Michael Brown, has selected four unique Hudson Valley craft beers for the event, and executive chef Vincent Mocarski has designed a menu to perfectly compliment the brews.

Diners will enjoy seasonal hors d’ouevres, roasted cauliflower soup, Long Island fluke and a smoked suckling pig roast. And under-the-radar beers like the Mattrazzo from Plan Bee Farm Brewery (a farm-brewery in Fishkill that uses only New York Hops), Two Roads No Limit Hefeweizen, Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner and more from Sloop Brewing, a nano-brewery started out of a Poughkeepsie garage, will also be poured. Dessert will be the delicate house-made chocolate doughnuts, and a vanilla bean ice cream and a beer float made from Sloop Brewing’s Black Belgian IPA.

“Since we opened in 2004, Valley has offered fine meals made with locally-sourced fresh foods and farm products,” Brown said. “We are continuing that tradition with our second regional Beer Dinner that will offer diners an informal, high-quality dining experience and expose them to new beers made in their own backyard paired with exceptional cuisine.”
