 We were here for a 4 course beer paired dinner featuring beers from Brooklyn Brewery.  The event was hosted by Richard Nowak from Brooklyn Brewery.   Richard gave us a brief history of Brooklyn Brewery and explained why each beer was paired with the prepared dish.

Overall: All 4 of the courses paired very well with the served Brooklyn beer, especially the dessert course.  I give high praise to the owner of this restaurant as they are trying to introduce the idea of craft beer into their predominately seafood and wine menu.
