Chuck Hahn Dinner
To celebrate my birthday last week, the Snook and I went to the Chuck Hahn dinner as part of the March into Merivale promotion. It was held at Bistro CBD and featured three courses with matched beers. (I tweeted a picture of the menu.) Chuck himself couldn’t come due to illness, but he sent Tony the master brewer from Malt Shovel. Tony walked us through the beers as each course was served, and he came around to our individual tables to chat too. I especially liked the “beer map” that was provided, and that allowed me to visualise where these beers fit on the dark/light ale/lager continuum. The food was great (though the Snook found the oxtail a little salty). Very fun outing, and I think Bistro CBD is definitely worth another visit.
