The next Hops & Harvest beer-and-food pairing dinner at Michael Mina’s Bourbon Pub – located in Levi’s Stadium, Ground Level (4900 Marie P. DeBartolo Way, Santa Clara) – is set for Friday, August 19 at 6pm.
The beer dinner will truly be a local affair as each of the six courses will be paired with a beer from Golden State Brewery, which opened their taproom and brewery in Santa Clara back in February.
New executive chef Steven Gotham has crafted a menu to showcase the versatility of beer when paired with good food. Below is a peek at the menu:
