New Year’s Eve Tapas and Beer at Sprecher Brewery

GLENDALE, WI — Regardless of how good or bad a year you’ve had, New Year’s Eve demands a celebration if not exclusively for what’s been then for what is and what will be — a celebration of appreciation and new adventures. Sprecher Brewing Company invites the public to take a multi-sensory adventure on Monday, December 31, 2012, when it premieres “Tapas and Beer,” featuring a wide range of aromas and flavors.

Beginning with a brewery tour, guests will then be escorted to a private tasting of at least 12 tapas plates paired with 12 Sprecher beers. Each tapas plate will have a carefully selected array of five to six different bites (e.g., artisan cheeses, nuts, fruit, assorted gourmet foods and snacks) meticulously paired with a Sprecher beer to highlight a range of tastes including sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami. By the end of this edifying gastronomic experience guests will have tried over 80 unique flavors and learned how pairing changes and enhances the flavors in both the beer and food items.

Pairing examples include: Sprecher Hefe Weiss paired with Maple Leaf White Cheddar with Cranberries, Bolzano Pamplona Runner Spanish-style Salami, Chili Spiced Mango, Dried Banana Chips and Sesame Honey Cashews. Chameleon Witty paired with Brie with Marmalade, Clementine, Lemon Ricotta Cookie, Triple Ginger Thin and Sprecher Beer Popcorn. Sprecher Generation Porter paired with Carr Valley Cocoa Cardona, Fresh Raspberries, Lorna Doone Shortbread, Assorted Dark Chocolates, Peanut Butter Stuffed Pretzels.

The premiere of Sprecher “Tapas and Beer” takes place December 31, 2012, 12:30pm-2:30pm, at Sprecher Brewing Company, 701 W. Glendale Ave., Glendale, WI. Cost: $30 per participant. Reservations are required by December 28th and may be made by calling 414.964.2739.
