NEW ORLEANS (Oct. 14, 2013) - Diners have a rare opportunity to enjoy exclusive beers from NOLA Brewing Company paired with inventive Creole cuisine during a special four-course dinner at Emeril’s Delmonico on October 25. In addition to chef de cuisine Anthony Scanio’s inspired offerings, the event will feature NOLA Brewing’s unique Mango-Pineapple Saison and limited edition Swamp Grape Escape. The dinner is $70 per person, excluding tax and gratuity. Reservations are required and may be made by calling 504-525-4937.
This fall, NOLA Brewing partnered with the popular Colorado-based New Belgium Brewery to produce a limited edition batch of the Swamp Grape Escape, a Belgium single ale made with muscadine grape juice. The ale is only available in New Orleans and will not be reproduced. Additionally, the special Mango-Pineapple Saison was donated exclusively for the Emeril’s Delmonico beer dinner.
