Expanded beer list, Deschutes pairings at Julian

From creating an exclusive sour beer with New Belgium to beer dinners and interactive dry-hopping sessions, Julian's Celina Tio has gone out of her way to show her dedication to and enthusiasm for craft beer. That dedication has a been further solidified with a couple recent announcements Tio made.

First, Julian has expanded its beer list. Now your beer choices include:


Boulevard Wheat
Boulevard Pale Ale
Boulevard Tank 7

Boulevard Love Child #2
Boulevard Dark Truth (Lil Smokie)
Boulevard Double Wide IPA (Lil Smokie)
Boulevard Sixth Glass (Lil Smokie)

In addition to the expanded beer list, Tio is resurrecting her Deschutes beer pairings that she did at Royal Liquor during Base Camp week. She's reformatting them as a beer tasting/dinner for two that you can order at any time. Starting tomorrow, $55 gets you one bottle of each Deschutes beer listed below and the corresponding dishes:

Deschutes Twilight paired with chilled roasted red pepper soup with smoked portobellos
Deschutes Mirror Pond paired with house smoked salmon on "deviled egg" crostini
Deschutes Inversion paired with mussels with house made beef chorizo, red onions and house fries
Deschutes Black Butte Porter with cocoa panna cotta with spicy creme fraiche

If you are interested in adding on another round of each of the four beers, you can do so for an additional $15, or single bottles are available for $5.

Finally, if you missed out on Tio's "Hogs n' Hops" pig roast last night, you're in luck, because she's doing it again this Sunday, August 12th. All beers listed above will be available for purchase, as well as Odell IPA, New Belgium Ranger IPA and Bear Republic Racer 5. The action starts at 5:30, and you can book a table by calling Julian at 816-214-8454.


  1. She also mentioned at Royal that she just ordered her first homebrew kit. It's nice to see someone with her talents do so much with beer.

    one of us, one of us, gooble gobble gooble gobble

  2. Northern Brewer stuff arrived the other day! Going to learn from a savvy home brewer on Sunday : ) so excited!

  3. That's awesome! I think you'll quickly realize how similar cooking and brewing really is. Can't wait to see the recipes someone like you can come up with once you get the process down.

  4. Give Sean Paxton a call! Best beer pairing/homebrewing chef I know.
