INFORMATION SUBMITTED TO TICKET
CHESTNUT HILL, PA – On Wednesday, April 8 beginning at 7 p.m., Head Brewer Chris LaPierre and Head Chef Jared Cannon will host a sinful “7 Deadly Sins” Beer Dinner at Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant (8400 Germantown Avenue,215-948-5600), featuring seven courses inspired by Dante’s seven deadly sins, each paired with an Iron Hill beer. For $70 per person, including tax and gratuity, guests will taste their way from greed to gluttony; seating is limited to just 40 people, so reservations are strongly recommended.
“Each dish on this menu has a story, and together, they add up to a sinfully delicious meal,” says Chef Cannon. Adds LaPierre, “Finding ways to express these ‘7 deadly sins’ in food and beer was an exciting challenge, and we can’t wait to share the results with our guests on this very naughty night.”
The wicked menu is representative of all seven sins, with a story behind each that Chef Cannon and LaPierre will share with guests over the course of the dinner. Sins (and dishes) will include: Greed: Snow Crab “Lobster Roll” with fines herbs on a buttered bun, paired with Light Lager, the brewery’s lightest beer, brewed for a crisp, clean, refreshing taste and very subtle malt and hop flavors; Wrath: Guajillo-Braised Pork Belly with lime, cilantro and habanero crema, paired with Wrath, a medium-bodied brown ale made with roasted and caramel malts aged on chili peppers; Envy: Crème Fraîche Mousse with compressed grapefruit, olive oil and black pepper, paired with Caprice, a golden American-Belgian-style ale brewed with Belgian yeast and Pacific Northwest hops for classic yeast fruitiness and lively herb notes; Pride: Mini Duck Confit Cheesesteak on house-made brioche, with shaved Asiago cheese, pickled shallots, foie gras butter and peppadew pepper gastrique, paired with Cannibal, a Belgian-style golden ale that is light in color and medium-bodied with complex flavors of spice and tropical fruit; Sloth: Black Strap Molasses-Braised Short Rib with fresh pasta, chives and Manchego cheese, paired with Ore House IPA, a golden ale with balanced hop bitterness and bright citrus and pine aromas and flavors; Lust: House-Made “Reese Cup” with graham cracker, peanuts and chocolate, paired with Lust, a rich, dark English stout brewed with New Jersey oyster shells adding complementary mineral complexity; and Gluttony: Crème Brûlée French Toast with bourbon-pecan ice cream, paired with Bourbon Quad, the brewery’s strongest Belgian-style ale, full of rich malt and subtle fruit notes and aged in a bourbon barrel for 14 months.
