Sour Saucer with a Side of Goose

The week of July 25th - 30th will be a fun one at The Flying Saucer for it will be Sour Beer Week. Events will kick off Monday July 25th with a Goose Island beer dinner.
The evening will allow guests to sample a wide range of Goose Island beers paired with a specially designed six-course food menu. Featured beers and food pairings for the evening include a first course consisting of Fleur Belgian Pale Ale alongside Moules Frites with an aioli trio; a second course offering of pork belly confit served with Matilda Belgian Pale Ale; Sofie Belgian Farmhouse Ale and a fennel and orange salad for the third course; Pepe Nero Belgian farmhouse ale with chilled Tunisian spicy tomato soup for the fourth pairing; sea scallops on a wilted spinach salad with a raspberry-ginger glaze served alongside Lolita Belgian Farmhouse Ale as the fifth course; and a 2009 Bourbon County barrel-aged Imperial Stout served with chocolate covered Belgian waffles with butterscotch and walnut ice cream for the final course of the night.
There is no truth to the rumors that Lolita is beechwood aged. The dinner is $50 for UFO members and $55 for everyone else with tickets available at The Flying Saucer. There's only room for 40 and they may already have it sold out. It's quite a great menu with excellent beer.

The rest of the week is no slouch either.
