Sweetheart Swirl Valentine's Beer Pairing Dinner at Hale's Ales

Hale's Ale's Sweetheart Swirl Brewmaster's Dinner
If you're looking to add a little bit of Ballard craft beer to your romance, you're in luck this week. Hale's is holding a brewmaster's dinner with a Valentine theme. The dinner includes "A candlelit four course dinner & ale pairing followed by an evening of music & dancing."

The dinner is Wednesday, February 12th, from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM at Hale's Palladium (around back from the pub). You can call 206-782-0737 for reservations. The price is $80 for a couple and $45 if you're riding solo. Tax and gratuity aren't included in the prices.

A posting over on Beer Advocate has a lot more info about the menu.

Escarole & Cheese Tortellini Soup with Hale's Pale Ale -A simple, but delicious starter made with escarole greens, cheese tortellini, and topped with Romano cheese.

Roasted Beet & Arugula Salad with "Browntown" (Small Beer made from Imperial Stout, 4%ABV) -A gourmet salad made with spiced candied walnuts, Oregon blue cheese, baby arugula, and sherry vinaigrette.

Choice of Entree:

Cherry Glazed Beef Tournedos with Merlot Barrel-Aged Cherry Infused Golden Ale -Tournedos, or a small fillet of beef cut from the tip of tenderloin, topped with a demi-glaze made from the Merlot Barrel-Aged Cherry Infused Golden Ale, and served with wild mushroom ragu.


Baked Black Cod with Bill's Pils -Served with micro greens, key lime citrus sauce, and citrus green cauliflower mash made with key lime shavings and the juice of orange, lemon, and lime.

Chocolate Porter Fountain with Toasted Coconut Troll Porter -A chocolate fountain will be served with a delicious dessert beer with plenty of pound cake, fresh fruit, and marshmallows to dip into a curtain of house-made, porter-infused chocolate fondue.

(Also, apologies for the dust on the blog. Work has been extra busy and I also had a week in India that I'm still catching up from. I'm planning on being a lot more consistent from here on out!)
