Six Days of Beer Pairings Thanks to The Meddlesome Moth, Libertine, and The Common Table

Further proving that the world’s most inspired plans are hatched over a beer, Keith Schlabs tells us that his Meddlesome Moth, The Common Table, and The Libertine are teaming up with Boulder’s Avery Brewing Co. for a week of excellent craft beer paired with a different chef’s menu every night. Schlabs and friends came up with the idea about a month ago … over some beers. “We were thinking about how to keep craft beer in public view and thought about the collaboration. We want to show Dallas what really big beer can be about.”

Jump here for the schedule. You won’t be sorry…

The week’s festivities will start on Monday (Oct 18) at the Libertine with a food pairing with Avery Salvation (a Belgian-style golden ale), followed by Tuesday at The Common Table where Avery Salvation will again be paired with a beer-inspired menu. On Wednesday The Meddlesome Moth offers flights of The Demons Series (Avery’s The Beast, Sameal, and Mephistophles) and Avery’s 17th Anniversary Black Lager. Return to The Libertine on Thursday for The Trinity Series (Avery Salvation, Reverend, and Hog Heaven barley wine). Save some room in your hollow leg for Friday at The Common Table, when The Dictators Series (Maharaja Imperial IPA, Czar Imperial Russian Stout, and Kaiser Imperial Oktoberfest) promises to blow your mind. Saturday’s final event at The Meddlesome Moth features, again, Avery Salvation.

Do I need to say that I’ll be first in line? I just can’t resist a perfect paring – especially when it involves a line-up as fine as this.
