Yuengling was recently invited to take part in a beer pairing dinner at The Club at The Strand in Naples, FL. Located on the west coast of the sunshine state, The Strand is a family club featuring a 27 hole golf course, a tennis & fitness complex, a spa, and a dining room serving award-winning cuisine. Of all these amenities, it was the superior clubhouse dining that brought Yuengling to The Strand on the evening of May 18th.
The head chef at the club created the 5 course menu shown below, to be paired with 5 Yuengling products and served to dinner guests.
Lord Chesterfield Ale - Paired with Queso Fundido with Roasted Poblano Vinaigrette.
Traditional Lager - Paired with Grilled Shrimp brushed with a Smoked Chili Butter and Warm Tomato Relish.
Original Black & Tan - Paired with Cornmeal Crusted Oysters with Grilled Tomato Jam and Horseradish.
Dark Brewed Porter - Paired with BBQ Duck filled Pancakes with Smokey Red Pepper Sauce.
Seasonal Bock Beer - Paired with Braised Short Rib with Papperdelle and Pecorino Romano.
The meal was excellent and members enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about the different brands available from America's Oldest Brewery. Yuengling Brewery representative Tom Hassett was on hand to explain the unique characteristics of the beers prior to each course. Thank you to everyone who attended and to the chef and staff at The Strand for making this pairing event a success. To learn more about The Strand, visit their website.
