In the spirit of the winter season, downtown destination, Mio (1110 Vermont Avenue NW; Washington, DC 20005; 202-955-0075 www.miorestaurant.com), is proud to announce its very first Beer Dinner. On Tuesday, January 27th, the restaurant will partner with Portland, Maine, export Allagash Beers for an evening of festive dining and drinking.

Inventive, talented Executive Chef Nicholas Stefanelli has handpicked Allagash for this launch event — a perfect collaboration to compliment his refined, ingredient-based cooking. Renowned for finely crafted Belgian-style beer, select seasonal brews will be paired with a divine four-course menu of Modern American fare. Stefanelli will call upon the four distinct brews for inspiration to create each course, noting distinct flavors to enhance each dish. To complete the dessert pairing is Pastry Chef Tom Wellings, who will round out the sweet-to-ale combination finale.

Five brews have been selected, though maintaining the confidentiality of two of the more difficult blends to find till the eve of the dinner. The additional three include Interlude (French Oak barrel aging), Curieux (aged Allagash Triple Ale in Jim Beam barrels), and Black (brewed with German 2 Row barley and Belgian dark candi).

The event will begin, as guests are welcomed with a celebratory glass of beer and unfold into an evening of fine dining and education in the craft of artisan brewing. The four-course meal will include discussions lead by Stefanelli and an Allagash Brew Master, providing insight to guests about each pairing.

Mio invites beer mavens and foodies alike to share in this special evening of fine fare and fermentation.

For reservations, please call Mio at 202- 955-0075.

This special four-course beer dinner is $90 per person and will begin at 7:30 pm.

This is one dinner I really wish I could attend, but I can't. But People, don't miss this one! wwmeade and I really loved their last event, and I know this one will be memorable, too.

Sorry to hear you can't make it! We love feedback and just wondering which past event at Mio you enjoyed so much?
