The Lincklaen House will be hosting a beer pairing dinner with Empire Brewing Company, the Syracuse-based microbrewery that is soon to break ground on a new brewing facility in Cazenovia.
The event will start at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16, and Empire's founder David Katleski and Brewmaster Tim Butler will be on hand to meet with guests prior to dinner at 7 p.m.
The meal will consist of six custom-crafted courses designed to complement a selection of Empire's beer, including pan-seared Tuscan-rubbed shrimp, pepper-encrusted salmon, oven-roasted duck breast, roasted bratwurst and braised beef short-ribs. Featured beers will include Empire Amber Ale, Winter Warmer, Liv and Let Rye, White Aphro, Local Grind and Barley Wine.
“This is an excellent opportunity to introduce Cazenovians to craft beer generally and our products specifically,” said Katleski, who is looking forward to the event. “The Lincklaen House is an important local landmark and we feel honored to be able to spend an evening with them eating delicious food and drinking great beer.”
The event costs $60 per person and is all-inclusive. Space is limited so reserve your seat by calling the Lincklaen House at 655-3461.
