Some of San Diego's best seafood and beer will be available for a special dinner at Mistral at Loews Coronado Bay Resort Thursday.
Lost Abbey Brewery will provide artisan beers with titles of divine inspiration to compliment fresh, local seafood made by chef Adam Cho.
"We talk a lot of about local ingredients and ‘farm to table’ and in San Diego our two most abundant ingredients are seafood and beer. At the event, we’ll highlight local seafood and show beer’s versatility by complementing the menu with the many nuanced flavor profiles from Lost Abbey," Cho said.
The San Diego brewery has won multiple World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival honors.
"It gives chefs a really cool opportunity to cook and try to pair with our beers especially with our more rare and barrel aged beers," said Lost Abbey Sales Manager Frank Green.
Among beers that will be served to compliment dishes at five-course meal is a Belgian strong ale called 10 Commandments.
"We torch the raisins that we use in there with a big flame thrower and then caramelize them up real good and then we steep the beer with rosemary and honey," he said.
Seasonal beers like Deliverance and Framboise de Amarosa, an American Wild Ale aged in oak barrels with raspberries, will be served.
"Once they go out for the season they're hard to get your hands on," he said.
Lost Abbey regularly partners with cuisine chefs, restaurants and other businesses across San Diego. The last event at Mistral was two years ago.
