A Year of Beer: Rock Bottom’s Tappings for 2009

When we were at Rock Bottom Thursday night for the Buffalo Gold Ale Mug Club tapping, Brewmaster Mitch shared with us several upcoming events that will be happening at the downtown brewpub.

First of all, the next Chef and Brewer Dinner will be Wednesday, January 21st at 6:30pm. This one will have a Winter Harvest theme. The menu is as follows:

  • Appetizer: Hearth Roasted Cedar Planked Salmon with a Honey and Rosemary Glaze – Paired with our Cincinnati American Light Lager
  • Salad: Whole Grain Harvest Salad with Spinach tossed in a Cherry Balsamic Dressing – Paired with our White Tiger Hefeweitzen
  • Entrée: Bacon and Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon served with Horseradish Whipped Potatoes and a Wild Mushroom and Green Bean Ragout – Paired with our Brown Bear Brown Ale
  • Dessert: Carmel Pecan Bread Pudding with Homemade Carmel Sauce – Paired with our Old Curmudgeon Scotch Ale

The cost is $35.00 a person (excluding tax and gratuity) and you need to call 513-621-1588 for reservations. Unfortunately, we’re going to have to miss this one, but the ones we’ve attended in the past have been exceptional.

Next, we happened to get the list for all of the Rock Bottom tapping for this coming beer. And they look amazing and intriguing:

February 19 – Fire Chief Ale, March 12 – Lumpy Dog Porter, April 16 – Catcher in the Rye IPA, May 7 – Goat Toppler Mai Bock, June 4 – Happy Pilsner, July 2 – American Dream, August 6 – Silver Mullet Mild, September 17 – Rocktoberfest, October 15 – Pumpkin Ale, November 12 – Liquid Sun Belgian Tripel, December 10 – St. Nick’s Barley Wine

Don’t you just love the names? I’m really looking forward to trying the Catcher in the Rye IPA. You can find this listing both on the Local Events page and the Rock Bottom page here at Hoperatives. It will also show up on our Upcoming Local Events roll as these events draw nearer.
