For NYE I'm doing a tasting menu paired with beer and wine for each course. My FIL is taking care of the wine, so I just wanted to get some feedback on my choices for the beers.

The menu is

First: Tuna sashimi with daikon radish, cucumber, fresh grated ginger and a soy dipping sauce. Beer---Hefe

Second: Pan seared scallops with bacon puree and brussel spouts. Beer---best bitter

Third: Grilled mango and prosciutto with herb ricotta and mango coulis Beer---German or Bohemian Pilsner

Fourth: Pineapple polenta and shrimp with pineapple habanero sauce. Beer--- Beligian Blonde

Fifth: Grilled lamb (ground lamb) skewers with cucumber mint coucous and cucumber yogurt dipping sauce. Beer---Flanders Red

Sixth: Cheeses ( types yet to be decided). Porter or Scotch Ale depending on the cheeses

Seventh: Roasted whole beef tenderloin and bearnaise sauce with mushroom risotto. Beer--- American Pale Ale
