When Husband asked if Neighbor and I would like to join him for an Ommegang Beer Dinner at Local Chop & Grill House in Harrisonburg, we of course said yes and heck yes. Not only did Ommegang brewery rep, Steven Cardello bring some amazing new beers, but Chef Ryan Zale never fails to impress, if not stun his diners. So on Thursday, April 7th, Neighbor and I walked (a half mile) to the Local to get our appetites going. I will attempt to describe the five course meal, please do not read if hungry.
While in the DC area over the weekend, I enticed some friends to meet me at the newly-opened Mad Fox Brewing Company. Located in downtown Falls Church, VA, Mad Fox is the new venture by Bill and Beth Madden. Bill previously brewed at Cap City Brewing Co and Vintage 50, and I’ve long been a fan of his beers. I was not disappointed by Mad Fox.
