Stokehold (4124 Tchoupitoulas St., 504-266-2332; www.stokeholdrestaurant.com), the restaurant inside Port Orleans Brewing Co. (www.portorleansbrewingco.com), is launching a biweekly beer dinner series Dec. 20. Chefs Jeremy Wolgamott, Phillip Mariano and Tim Bordes opened the restaurant in spring.
The prix fixe three-course dinners include a brief class prior to the meal in which the chefs and brewers discuss beer tasting and pairing, explain how different flavors influence how beer tastes and how the team pairs food and beer.
Each of the courses is paired with one of the brewery's beers. The dinner costs $45 and seating is limited to 20 people per event. To make reservations, contact Port Orleans Brewery.
