It may be Monday, but when it’s Beer Week, Monday has a whole different meaning. There are plenty of tastings to fill your evening: Medici House in East Aurora for a spectacular dinner; Pan American Grill & Brewery to take in the movie Beer Hunter and enjoy some Buffalo Beer Week Collaboration Beer – Lord Lupulin as well as all of Pan Am’s beers offerings.
7 – 11 PM Beer Hunter the Movie at the Pan American Grill & Brewery
“Beer Hunter” is a documentary film about the beloved and influencial beer and whiskey journalist, Michael Jackson. His books on beer and whiskey have sold millions of copies and his 1993 Discovery Channel television series, “The Beer Hunter”, inspired countless brewers and beer enthusiasts and literally helped shape the course of the craft brewing revolution that continues to sweep the world. Buffalo Beer Week Collaboration Beer – Lord Lupulin (and all Pan Am Beers) – will be on tap! For those “Beer Geeks” who are not familiar with Mr. Jackson – it’s right time you learn!

Pan Am Grille and Brewery, 391 Washington Ave., Buffalo
6 – 10 PM Oskar Blues Beer Dinner Pairing at Medici House
Seating is limited so call 652-0341 quick for reservations. This event will be hosted by Yvon Paul Pasquarello from Oskar Blue. Living in Brooklyn, Yvon is a Buffalo native and Oskar Blue’s NYS representative. Medici House’s Chef will be on hand to answer questions about the menu items as well.
For $30 per person diners will be treated to a stuffed banana pepper appetizer which will be paired with Oskar Blues Old Chub. Mind you, this isn’t going to be a tiny little tasting of Old Chub. Each serving is 11 oz. You will get to savor the brew along with every bite of your banana peppers. Next up will be a mango avocado salad which will be paired with Dales Pale Ale. On to the main entrée: buttermilk fried chicken, mashed potatoes and greens. This will be paired with Mam’s Lil Yella Pils. If you have room for dessert, they have a caramel marble cake that will be paired with Ten FIDY Imperial Stout.
After that, our guess is you will need to lean back and hang out for a while because you’ll be too full to move.
Medici House offers beer pairing dinners monthly so if for some reason you can’t make this one (maybe because you’ve got another Beer Week event you have to make), give them a call (652-0341) and find out their schedule. Located on Main St., E. Aurora
