Here's some photos from the Schmaltz Brewery and Food pairing. Four delicious beers were paired with some delicious meats. One of the meats was a tongue of sorts, I think. At least that's what I was told. One of the meats was a hot dog - made with Kobe beef. It was the first hot dog I've eaten in over a decade, and I'm glad that it was good. No need to break my hot dog boycott for a mediocre hot dog. It was awesome.
Cooking before the show begins.
And what's beer without a joyful toast?
Here's some photos from the Rogue Ale Chocolate and Beer pairing session. Chocolate and beer are becoming a popular pairing, and it's easy to see why. The roasty chocolate beers pair well with sweet chocolate. I have some plans in mind for a Rogue Ale Chocolate Stout Lava cake served with a creme brandy sauce. Stay tuned for that.

Sebbie explains the beers.
Chocolate and Beer with Sebbie. There's a reason why I'm so giddy!
