Black Sheep to host beer dinner throw down

black_sheepA month or so ago, Black Sheep Restaurant tried to hold a unique beer dinner at their rooftop dining area. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans and torrential rain forced the cancellation of the event. So, to make it up to those beer lovers who missed out, the restaurant has rescheduled the event for Wednesday, September 16 between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.

The concept: pit two legendary breweries against each other in a beer pairing throw down.

The breweries: Tampa’s Cigar City Brewing and Southern California’s Stone Brewing.

Created by Chef Waylon Rivers, the menu is an opulent mélange of surf and turf creations. Think ceviche, scallops and beef short ribs. Creative and exciting stuff.

The beers will be presented by representatives of each brewery and are chosen to highlight the dish they are served alongside.  Both Cigar City and Stone are known for their assertive and flavor-forward brews and for this shoot out, they have brought the big guns. Heady brews such as Stone Hifi Lowfi Blended Ale and Cigar City Seasonal Creep are featured prominently.

First Course

Shrimp Ceviche, Compressed Water Melon, Shishito Peppers, Mezcal

Paired with:
Stone Goto Session IPA
Cigar City Invasion IPA

Second Course

Little Pig Ear Salad

Paired with:
Stone Hifi Lowfi Blended Ale
Cigar City Cracker White

Third Course

Seared Scallop, Summer Squash Salad, Upland Cress Gazpacho

Paired with:
Stone Delicious IPA
Cigar City Hard Cider

Fourth Course

Coffee Glazed Short Rib, Black Eye Pea Salad, Red Eye Vinaigrette

Paired with:
Stone Collaboration Woot Stout
Cigar City Seasonal Creep

In addition to the elaborate food to be served, the service itself is somewhat unique. Instead of a seated dinner, diners are encouraged to arrive when they feel like it anytime during the dinner’s hours. Dishes will be served reception style on diner’s time schedules, not in a rush as is often the case at beer dinners.

Tickets for the event are $40 (not including tax and gratuity) and are available from the restaurant. Call (904) 380-3091 for more details and to purchase a ticket.
