This is a pretty big deal.  An Alabama restaurant other than The J. Clyde is hosting a beer dinner.  And the menu looks good:


  • Three oysters on the half shell with pineapple salsa and habanero brown sugar vinegar sauce paired with Blanche de Chambly.


  • Pan seared chicken with apricot cous cous mixed greens dressed with a lemon bur blanc paired with Orange Blossom Pilsner.


  • Ancho rubbed pork loin with rice, saffrito sauce, and black bean puree paired with Maudite.


  • Peanut butter pie with chocolate rum sauce paired with Trios Pistoles.

All this at Sweet Bones Alabama tomorrow, Tuesday, Aug. 4, at 6:30 p.m.  Four courses for a scant $36.  Give ‘em a call and make a reservation: 205- 970-3058.

Tell your friends and your enemies.  It’s really important for the beer-loving community to support businesses that are advancing beer culture in Alabama.  And if you do make a reservation, tell ‘em you heard about it here on the Free The Hops site.  This plug was unsolicited by Sweet Bones but when I saw the post on Wine Sublime I knew the FTH community would be interested.  Let’s make sure businesses realize they can benefit from engaging us.
