The culinary team, led by Executive Chef Kirk DeLong from Rodney’s Grill at The Fess Parker – A Doubletree by Hilton Resort, believes nothing tastes quite like an ice-cold hand crafted beer to quench summertime thirst.
With that belief in mind, DeLong is taking beer to a whole new level with the resort’s first ever Beer Pairing Dinner complementing a $79 per person (plus tax and gratuity) delectable four-course tasting menu with hand crafted beers from Orange County’s The Bruery. A special $70 per person price is being offered to The Fess Parker Winery’s Wine Club and The Bruery’s “Hoarders and Reserve Societies” exclusive members.
The tasting dinner will be held on July 26th at 7 p.m.
In attendance at the tasting event will be CEO & Founder Patrick Rue whose six-year-old company, The Bruery, will provide a brief overview to guests about the pairing of signature beers with each course. Chef DeLong will share with diners highlights of American dishes and the use of fresh regional produce and ingredients which complement the beers. The Bruery is a boutique craft brewery specializing in barrel-aged and experimental ales. Founded as a small, friend and family run business in 2008, The Bruery takes its unique moniker from founder Patrick Rue’s family surname.
“The Fess Parker family have a long time tradition in the wine and hospitality business in Santa Barbara County, and are delighted to be working collaboratively with the family-owned business The Bruery. The two have worked collaboratively on the release of “Confession,” a sour- style beer fermented with Riesling grapes that tastes like wine, and is ranked high among beer critics,” according to Director of Sales & Business Development Beth Olson of The Fess Parker – A Doubletree by Hilton Resort.
