Arizona Biltmore to offer beer dinners

The Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort in Phoenix is pairing Arizona microbrews with original menus by Executive Chef Gordon Maybury for special Biltmore Beer Dinners.

The dinners will be held January through April on the second Monday of each mont, in the private Sunroom at Frank & Albert’s restaurant. Featured breweries will include Tempe-based Four Peaks Brewery, Mother Road Brewery of Flagstaff, Lake Havasu City-based Mudshark Brewery and Sleepy Dog Brewery of Tempe. At each event, brewery representatives will discuss the beers and their brewing philosophy and process. Menu pairings will range from mushroom ravioli with chorizo sauce coupled with a pale ale to espresso cake and dark chocolate mint mousse matched with a winter stout.

“The array of unique beers being created by these Arizona microbreweries is a joy to pair with food because they are sophisticated, nuanced and burst with a range of flavors, consistencies and finishes,” Maybury said. “The Biltmore Beer Dinners will be multi-faceted culinary experiences that will wow beer aficionados and novices alike.”
