I know I pimp my current favorite beer bar an awful lot. But I live in Rochester, New York, and when it comes to authentic British pubs, my choices are kind of limited. Besides, I’d like them a lot less without their passion for good beer.
Anyway, on Tuesday, August 21st, the Toad will be hosting a vintage beer and cider dinner. Here’s the menu:
Vintage Ale and Cider Dinner Menu
August 21st – 8PM
Cured Salmon with Sweet Citrus Asparagus and Dill Hollandaise
accompanied with Lindeman’s Cuvee Rene Guezue (2004 Vintage)
Roasted Pork with fruit stuffing, served with Rocket, Roasted Potatoes Pickled Beets and Danish Bleu Salad
accompanied with Cidre Bouche Brut – Etienne Dupont (2000 Vintage)
Apple and Walnut Galette with Green Apple Sorbet and Cinnamon Custard
accompanied with Schneider Aventinus (2002 Vintage)
Cheese Plate: A selection of artisan cheese served with crackers and dates
accompanied with J.W. Lees Harvest Ale (1998 Vintage)
The event is sold out, but there are always last minute cancellations. If you want to go, pop by the toad on Sunday or Monday night and see if a space has opened up, or call Manager Jules Suplicki at 585.232.2626.
Personally, I can only think of one better way to spend a Tuesday evening, and THAT’s probably illegal.
