Beer and Chocolate tonight at Deschutes Brewery

Posted By on Sat, Mar 19, 2011 at 6:47 PM

People like chocolate. And people, especially in Central Oregon, like beer. Tonight, the two come together at Bend's most venerable brewery, Deschutes, for a five course feast, each course featuring - surprise, surprise - chocolate, paired with a Deschutes Brewery beer. Tickets are $70 and can be purchased here.  I'll be covering the event and expect to have to be rolled out of the Deschutes Brewery Mountain Room on a keg trolley. It's gonna be a good night.

Below is tonight's menu:


 

Passed Appetizer - Goat Cheese “Truffle”| chevre mixed with lemon zest, crushed cocoa nibs and hazelnuts rolled into “truffles” and dusted with cocoa powder. Paired with Cherryweiss.

Passed Appetizer - Ancho Cocoa Pan Seared Scallop atop a Yam Crisp Topped with Crème Fraiche. Paired with Cherryweiss.

Seated Appetizer - Chocolate Gnocchi with thyme braised pears, pancetta crisp on a bed of oregonzola cream. Paired with Cherryweiss.
Salad  - Cocoa nib salad | Spring mix with roasted fennel and onions, orange segments and cocoa nib orange/ tangelo vinaigrette. Paired with an Irish Chocolate Stout on nitro (beer has yet to be named).  
Entre
- Lamb shank| Pan seared lamb shank braised with obsidian stout and unsweetened chocolate, served with natural jus, roasted fingerlings and roasted beet and microgreen wilt. Paired with Aphrodite, a Chocolate Fig Stout.
Dessert
- Maple bread pudding and chocolate bacon toffee gelato served with a chocolate dipped phyllo crisp.  Paired with Black Butte XXI.
