Whether the start of September elicits the feeling of back-to-school time, harvest tailgates or colder nights let’s not forget that September is still … summer! And we are celebrating both seasons with a special 5-course beer dinner on Wednesday September 17, as Chef Ashton Keefe combines flavors of summer and fall pairing dishes with Harpoon Brewery classics and seasonal favorites.
Chef Ashton, an original member of Haven’s Kitchen who has featured on television multiple times, pulls inspiration from the west-coast and American south and uses local seasonal ingredients to create a fun-to-eat and beautiful to Instagram 5-course meal. Regional produce will be prominently featured in courses such as the Peach and Heirloom Tomato Soup and Pumpkin and Squash Stuff Shells, and for us, nothing beats Fried Chicken and Waffles.
And we look forward to Harpoon’s debut at the Manchester Pub’s acclaimed beer dinner series! We have long been big fans of this Boston-based brewery, and we look forward to enjoying our favorites such as the UFO White, Pumpkin, and the Boston Irish Stout.
The dinner will take place on Wednesday September 17 in two sessions: 6:30pm and 9:00pm. Price for the dinner is $60 per person (plus sales tax and gratuity). RSVP by emailing Lawrence@manchesterpubnyc.
