Victory Tasting Dinner Was a Huge Success!

In case you missed it, T Burke Gastro Pub hosted it's first ever Victory Tasting Dinner with Victory Brewing Company at the Valley Forge DoubleTree by Hilton! Four courses of deliciousness! 

The atmosphere that night was perfect- cold and rainy outside, warm and cozy inside. 

We began with a lovely duck confit over leafy greens and a goat cheese croquette, paired with the Swing Saison, the savory duck commingling with the fresh peppercorns and spicy citrus of this refreshing beer. This one was my favorite beer. 

We then moved on to delightful pan seared salmon paired with Golden Monkey, which has 2 imported row malts, coriander seed, and whole flower European hops. This tasted so amazing with the salmon.

The third course found Rach and I getting a little full, but we were ready for the next course! They brought out beer-braised short ribs with Hop Devil, a Victory IPA favorite with whole flower American hops. This was the perfect meal for this evening, with stick-to-your ribs meat and potatoes. This was the end of the savory meal, and next was dessert. 

Dessert was a chocolate brownie created with the Storm King Imperial Stout! Topped with a caramel beer drizzle and frosty vanilla ice cream, we were in heaven! Amazing!

So, don't miss the next one when it comes around!!
