Porktoberfest Day 15 brought to you by mega store- Wegmans

Wegmans hosted a local beer dinner on Friday at their Collegeville location.  Victory, Stoudts, Weyerbacher and Sly were involved.
Chef Haines did a fantastic job. 
Before each course he came out to explain how he came up with the pairing.  So much more personable than many others out there.
The main course was paired up with Victory's Moonglow- their Weizenbock.  He paired that with a Pork Tenderloin and an Apple chutney with roasted celeriac.  I usually don't care for celery but the root roasted was okay.  The pork wasn't too dry and who doesn't like apples?

The dessert was awesomely paired with Stoudts Fat Dog Imperial oatmeal stout.  It was a German Choco Bar with homemade whip.  Jodi Stout joked that she would have enough energy for the drive back west after getting a few forkfuls.

Keep your eyes and ears open for upcoming news on future Wegmans events.  They do a great job and they're quite reasonably priced.
