Extra! Extra! New Chef @ World Cafe Live to Pair his Eats with Victory treats

It's funny as I type this (about a brewery that isn't Sly Fox) I continue to laugh at something very funny that was said to me last night. Apparently a bar told another brewery rep that I talk about Sly Fox too much in my writing. WHAT???? For this here blog I can do what I want-= Sure I talk about Sly Fox (alot)- I talk about every brewery and bar out there. When I am actually getting green for it - I think I really try to almost not talk about Sly. Oh well. Some people just like to bitch I guess.

That was me bitching. Onward with the post.
Let us chat Victory. World Cafe Live has the makings of a great event coming up. They've got a new chef -Michael Breslin- that they're totally psyched about and he's going to show off his skills on Tuesday Nov. 17. Its a rather reasonable $40. Pairs are only $65.
Not sure if there's a musical component. email Ryan Starr at to rsvp.

Here's the menu....Some great beers-=-

Crab & Arugula
Sauteed Jumbo lump crabmeat, tossed with arugula & tomatoes in a lemon garlic wine sauce
Paired with: Helios Ale Helios Ale has an earthy, aromatic hop start and shifts into aspects of lemon peel and black pepper.

BBQ Shrimp
Prosciutto-wrapped shrimp set atop jicama slaw drizzled with sundried cherry BBQ sauce & a smoked Gouda aioli
Paired with: Moonglow Weizenbock This dark amber wheat beer features fruity and spicy aromas galore. Significant strength underlies the pleasant citric appeal of this bock beer.

Filet mignon
Char-grilled filet, lobster mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, demi glace
Paired with: FestBier Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German malts and whole flower European hops make this lager true to style.

Carmelized scallops, roasted sweet potatoes, vanilla bourbon butter
Paired with: Baltic Thunder Exhibiting the enticing, toffee roast of the British porter that originated the style in the 18th century, and the soothing, subtle fruit nuance of contemporary brews that flourish from Helsinki to Vilnius today.

Molten Chocolate Cake
Chocolate cake with a warm liquid center
Paired with: Yakima Twilight The tenacious grip of big, juicy hop aroma and character slides smoothly into rich, dark malts.
