So just because I gave you a food and drink roundup here last Friday, too — which still happens to be mostly relevant, by the way, so click it — don't be expectin' me to do it weekly.
I simply can't bear that type of pressure.
But what the hell, it's Friday again and I happen to be sitting on a new batch of newsy nibbles. (Don't worry, I just punched myself in the face for you for writing the words "newsy nibbles" ... like, who do I think I am, anyway?)
More specifically, below is news of a trio of awesome-sounding beer dinners. I'm talking about pairings like elk burgers and pale ale; cider mousse and barley wine; and a Cuban sandwich that will meet a Miles Davis-tribute Bitches Brew Imperial Stout.
Click on all the menu links below to see which courses belong to which dinners:
• Bristol Brewing Company will host a six-course beer dinner (or in its words, a "Bristolicious night") at Conscious Table on Wednesday, May 16 at 6:30 p.m. Seats are $65 plus tax/tip and you can view the full menu here:11x17_Conscious_Table_Pinkie_Poster_1.pdf

• Phantom Canyon Brewing Co. finishes off May's beer dinner action with a five-course Spring Brewer's Dinner at 6 p.m., Thursday, May 31. Seats are $50, tax and tip included. And wouldn't you know, I have that menu on hand as well: Brewers-dinner-copy.pdf
