*now taking reservations* :: Januray 26 Beer Dinner with Funk Factory & O'so Brewing
We're pleased to announce a Forequarter beer dinner with Funk Factory & O'so Brewing, Sunday, January 26th. In addition to our regular dinner menu, we will be offering a special tasting menu with beverage pairings: 6 courses, 4 funky beers and 2 cocktails for $85.
As we now take reservations for Sunday service, you may call the restaurant any day after 3pm to reserve. Please specify how many members of your party would like to enjoy the paired tasting menu.
Levi Funk will be dining with us and around to chat about all manner of fermentation, spontaneous and otherwise. He's collaborated with O'so to produce sour beer over the past several years--laying the groundwork for ageuzeria Levi plans to launch in Madison. The long-term collaborative scope--among brewers, bugs, barrels and blender--of the project makes us positively giddy, and our beer dinner falls just after the release of four funky beers that commemorate Levi's acquisition of a coolship to ferment his first proper lambic. We're flattered he and Marc Buttera are allowing us to grab such a significant swath of these beers.
