File under: questions we’d very much like to know the answer to. A very kind wife would like to throw a fairly remarkable 40th birthday party for her lucky husband—a beer-tasting dinner for 16 somewhere in Manhattan. She seeks good food and a wide selection of American craft beers, a big room, a smart sommelier, and to not leave the borough.

Riverman500 chimed in with Resto, which seems genius, since they already have beer dinners, but Resto is known for its Belgian food and extensive list of European beers, not American ones. Would they cut the mustard for Mrs. mrgdess? So far the lady seems most taken with the suggestion of Colicchio & Sons (thanks, sgordon).

What say you? And how lucky is this guy?
