Great Lakes Beer Dinner

It's finally here! The much-anticipated entry of Great Lakes Brewery into the Virginia market officially begins on February 27. There are several "tap takeover" events taking place around Northern VA. The first official Great Lakes Beer Dinner will be held on March 1, right here in Fredericksburg at Capital Ale House.
Welcome Beer - Eliot Ness Amber Lager 
1st Course - Chestnut Soup topped with Sourdough Sage Croutons paired with Dortmunder Gold Lager 
2nd Course - Tapas plate of house made Bread n Butter Pickles, Polish Kielbasa, Sauerkraut Balls, Fontina Cheese and Smoked Cheddar paired with Burning River Pale Ale 
3rd Course - Jerk Seasoned Walleye stuffed with Roasted Red Peppers and Baby Spinach over Wild Rice paired with Commodore Perry IPA 
4th Course - Blackberry stuffed Pierogies finished with Coffee Infused Porter Reduction paired with Edmund Fitzgerald Porter

There will also be tasting events held around town that day, at Wegmans and Total Wine.

Tickets to the dinner are available at Capital Ale House. The dinner will be held from 7:00PM - 9:00PM and tickets cost $35. As of this writing they were not available online.


  1. Glad to see you got to taste some of our local stuff. The Eddie Fitz is good dark beer - enjoy!

    1. I've tried most of the GLB beers previously, thanks to friends who travel. It will be great to buy them locally.
