Beer vs. Wine

The Hanson Public Library Foundation Hosts a Chef’s Special Dinner with Beer & Wine Showdown on March 9th at Meadow Brook Restaurant

The Hanson Public Library Foundation is hosting a Chef’s Special Dinner with paired beer & wine tastings for you to have an enjoyable night out with friends and to support the library at the same time. The Special Dinner will take place on Friday, March 9th at Meadow Brook Restaurant in Hanson and will feature a five course dinner with each course expertly paired with both beer and wine tastings. The doors open at 6:45 PM, and the festivities begin at 7:00 PM.

The evening of food will feature a plated Caesar salad; Italian antipasto with assorted cheeses, olives, cured meats, marinated vegetables and assorted house baked artisan breads; mascarpone pumpkin ravioli with pan-seared sea scallops and Galliano basil cream sauce; chicken Marsala served with garlic mashed potatoes; and chocolate mousse with house-made whipped cream and fresh strawberries. A representative from Café Europa will present the wines and Larry from L. Knife & Son of Kingston, MA will share his beer expertise. Guests will be served both a wine and beer tasting with each course. Following each course, each table will choose whether they prefer the wine or beer pairing. Will wine or beer prevail as the favorite?

Tickets for this age 21 and over event are $35.00 per person before March 1st and $40.00 afterwards. Tickets may be purchased at the Hanson Public Library or the Meadow Brook Restaurant.
