Reservations are now being accepted for a unique dining event at Savona Restaurant and Wine Bar to be held on Thurs, March 24th starting at 6:30pm, featuring beers from the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company from Chico, California. Chef Trevor Sutherland has paired each beer with each of the 4 food courses. Menu is as follows:
1st course: Kellerweis steamed mussels /brie cheese / crispy prosciutto
Served with: Kellerweis-one of the only American Hefeweizens made using the traditional Bavarian style of open fermentation.
2nd course: Braised pork belly/ hydro Bibb lettuce / horseradish pale ale vinaigrette
Served with: Pale Ale – “the flagship beer, the one that made Chico famous. It is a flawless beer that opens with bright, perky high notes of maltiness and orange blossom and segues into a delectable hoppiness.”– Elaine Louie, Premier Beer—A Guide to America’s Best Bottled Microbrews
3rd course: Grilled pork chop/ fried white cheddar polenta/braised greens/tarragon mustard sauce
Served with: Torpedo IPA-a big American IPA; bold, assertive, and full of flavor highlighting the complex citrus, pine, and herbal character of whole-cone American hops.
4th course: Gateau Saint-Honoré Nouvelle w/ chocolate/ cherries
Served with: Bigfoot Barleywine 2011- robust malts take over and notes of brandied cherries, dates, cocoa, leaf tobacco, and caramel come to the fore.
