Boca Bistro, Druthers team up for beer pairing dinner
The event, set for the start of Saratoga Beer Week, will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 21.
Five beers from the downtown brewer will be paired with the Boca chefs' foods. They are:
All In IPA, an American-style IPA made with Amarillo and Citra hops; Fist of Karma Brown Ale, an American brown ale; The Dare, Gose, a little-known German-style ale brewed with coriander and a small amount of salt; Scottish-Style 80, a copper-colored ale; Against the Grain Hefeweizen, a Bavarian–style wheat beer made with beech wood-smoked malt.
Druthers' master brewer is George de Piro, winner of three gold medals at the Great American Beer Festival and gold, silver and bronze awards at the World Beer Cup.
Reservations, which are required, are available online at $65 plus tax and tip.
The original brewery, which also has an Albany facility, is located at 381 Broadway, adjacent to Boca Bistro which at 384 Broadway.
