It's my fiance's birthday on Sat, July 23rd, and I'm looking for a place either in Manhattan or Brooklyn that is serving a beer pairing dinner. I know restaurants usually have this every now and then, but it seems really difficult to find a beer pairing event if you're focused on a specific date. I'm also open to other similar ideas like if there's some sort of guy-ish type dinner event that day.
Another option is to go to a restaurant that would have a good selection of beers and relatively gourmet food and create a pairing ourselves. Maybe something like Freemans, Vinegar Hill House, Char No 4, etc. Basically not stuffy but still relatively nice atmosphere.
