The combined effort of Storm Brewing, Brew Craft on Topsail Road, Sap World, and gypsy brewers Chad Levesque and Stephen Canning [category winners in the 2014 Newfoundland and Labrador Home Brewers Competition] produced two Ancient Ale Collaborative Clones for Dr. McGovern to taste with us in amounts of about 100 ml each:
· Levesque Midas Touch Collaborative Clone
· Canning Kvasir Collaborative Clone
In addition to hummus and pita bread, Chef Ian Smith will prepare two ‘ancient style’ appetizers, i) falafel on cucumber and ii) smoked salmon with red onion, capers, dill, and sour cream to accompany the Collaborative Clones. The ales and appetizers will be served Family Style.
Following Dr. McGovern’s presentation, tasting of the two Collaborative Clones, and a question and answer period; Chef Smith will provide braised lamb shank and marinated flank steak with roasted baby potatoes and a veggie kabob followed by an individual dark chocolate torte to complement a tasting of Garrison and Storm beer served in amounts of about 100 ml each:
· Irish Red Ale
· India Pale Ale
· Imperial IPA
· Storm Beer of the Month
· Imperial Chocolate Stout
