Sacramento Brewing Summer Beer Dinner

Tracy and I have been to a couple of Sacramento Brewing Company's beer dinners and have been impressed each time. For one, there's just no getting around the fact that Peter Hoey makes great beer. Add to that these dinners start with the beer and you have a good thing going. Peter works with SacBrew's head chef Rodriguez and together they develop a menu that perfectly complements the theme of the dinner (summer in this case) and the beers served. It's worked well in the past and this menu looks just as good. Check it out.
