Three Cheers for Beer

Events focused around beer are always a good time. And it makes it an easier sell to my husband. Three favorite East End establishments are offering a variety of special events with a planned menu and a tasting of different ales:

Kelly's Bar & Lounge, Saturday, February 20th @4pm
and Sunday, February 21st @1pm
Hell with the Lid Off  6th Annual Barleywine Festival

No comment on the ominous title. This event claims to have the most beers under one roof. Co-organized by Pittsburgh's East End Brewing Company. $40 in advance, $45 at the door, includes it all.

Point Brugge Cafe, Monday March 8th @7pm
Dinner featuring Wisconsin's Furthermore Beer

We went to a similar dinner at the Belgian neighborhood cafe this Fall and enjoyed the intimacy and variety of the menu. I always get the mussels at dinner, so it was fun to try the chef's selections with the paired beer tastings. And it was also nice not to wait for a table (yes, you HAVE to make a reservation!) $40 per person includes dinner, beer, tax and tip.

The Cafe at the Frick, Thursday, March 25th @7pm
Craft Beer Dinner

The Cafe has never disappointed, and the setting feels like you're dining in a greenhouse. A five course meal paired with East End Brewing Company ales. Reservations required. $70 per person includes dinner, beer, tax and tip.
