On Wednesday, January 21st, I had the pleasure of attending Fishnet’s first beer dinner of 2015. Playing host to Ommegang’s Brad Lawrason, Fishnet chef/owner Ferhat Yaclin paired five courses with some delicious standbys from upstate New York Staste’s Belgian-style specialists, along with a few harder to find selections.
I was particularly excited to head to this dinner as you don’t often see seafood-focused pairing dinners, which is a bit of a downer since beer and seafood can have the kind of relationship where they finish one another’s sentences and leave loving-but-tasteful notes in unexpected places. It’s really sickeningly adorable sometimes. Sickeningly.
Plus, it was great to see a beer dinner that didn’t break the bank. At $45 per person (excluding tax and tip), this dinner was a great way to sample some interesting pairings at a reasonable price (though, full disclosure, I was an invited guest and so didn’t pay that reasonable sum).
Anywho, to the pairings!
