Speaking of beer pairings, the cellar tasting events at Avenues Proper sell out fast; and with good reason (see below). The next sell out event on Wednesday July 27th is a vertical tasting of various bottlings of Uinta’s Birthday Suit with a fun menu to boot:

* Goat cheese tart, pickled plums, pistachio

* Birthday Suit #21

* Seared duck breast, cherry gastrique, pepita toffee
* Birthday Suit #20

* Caputo’s cave-aged Ossau cheese, marcona almonds, cherry mostarda, barley chips
* Birthday Suit #23

If that looks interesting – word to the wise – while sold out presently, drop-outs can and do happen. Be sure to call the restaurant direct and ask to be wait listed in case that happens!
