    Two local establishments have teamed up to offer Louisvillians a delicious night out on Frankfort Avenue. On August 12, Varanese Restaurant will host a four-course dinner paired with beers from Against the Grain Brewery.

    Since February 2013, Varanese has often hosted wine and beer dinners, and they’ve been a hit with guests.

    “They will continue until no one comes anymore,” said Jennifer Montgomery, a spokesperson for the restaurant. “Right now—they are very popular!” 

    That sad, tickets are $55 and don’t include tax and gratuity. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (502) 899-9904 or emailing

    A reception starting at 6:30 will highlight ATG’s Brettish Bulldog Old Ale, and from there:

    First Course

    Bay and Pepper your Bretts Saison Ale
    Low Country Beer Boil with Shrimp, Corn on the Cob, House-Made Sausage,
    Marbled Potatoes and Pearl Onions

    Second Course

    Citra Ass Down Double IPA
    Crispy Flat Bread topped with Slow Roasted Pork, Smoked Gouda Cheese,
    Creamy Slaw, Carolina BBQ and Fried Onion Straws

    Third Course

    35k Milk Stout
    Beer Braised Boneless Short Rib
    Served with Roasted Carrot Puree, Charred Brocolini, Cauliflower and Potato Gratin
    Finished with a Rich Pan Sauce

    Fourth Course

    The Brown Note American Brown Ale
    Chocolate & Caramel Cookie Bar
    Topped with Pretzel Crumble and Sea Salt

    Surely we’re giving you enough time to put some extra hours in at the gym, so you’ll have no qualms about thoroughly indulging (and learning how to pair beers in the process).
