North Texas Beer Week is well under way and to celebrate the awesomeness, Meddlesome Moth hosted Garrett Oliver for a Pairdine event on Tuesday night. Let’s face it, they were really just showing off. I actually touched Garrett and I woke up the next morning with x-ray vision and super human strength. Why I am not using these powers to save lives and secure my financial future is for another time. I am here to tell you about the evening prior to my metamorphosis. Stay with me. Garrett Oliver is the brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery as well as an author of two beer books, the nine hundred page The Oxford Companion to Beer and The Brewmaster’s Table. You need to read them. Leave now and do this.
OK, so everything was delicious and beautiful and the rare versions of beers he brought down tickled everyone pink. Chef David McMillan killed it in the kitchen with truffles, pork belly, and even tofu. That guy rules. Here are some pictures of what you missed. This should tell you to get off your keister and go out to all the amazing events that are taking place this week.
