Four Star Beer


Recommended Posts


In recent years beer has gone from blue collar to white linen. Beverage directors at fine-dining establishments are not only beefing up their beer menus, but some are even replacing wine pairings with brews. The French Laundry in Yountville serves ale with cured veal heart canapes, at the Fifth Floor in San Francisco it's stout with chocolate macaroons, at Per Se in New York an English brown-style beer goes with washed rind cow's milk cheese, and at Rosemary's restaurant in Las Vegas there's a Belgian variety with pan-seared shrimp.

Interesting article!

I hadn't realized that the French Laundry had their own beer!
