Dine With Lark, Cloudburst & Holy Mountain During Seattle Beer Week

 

As I’m sure most of you already know, Seattle Beer Week kicks off next Thursday, May 4th.  Exactly one week later (but still during Seattle Beer Week, which continues until the 14th), Seattle’s premiere artisan-focused restaurant, Lark, will be hosting a gourmet beer dinner, featuring their own artisan cuisine and beers from two of Seattle’s newest and hottest breweries: Cloudburst Brewing and Holy Mountain Brewing.

This is just one of several dinners you’ll find listed on the events page for Seattle Beer Week, but this is the only one where you can enjoy Chef John Sundstrom’s gourmet offerings of locally-produced and organic cheese, charcuterie, vegetables, grains, fish, and meats, all prepared in season, as well as beers from both Cloudburst and Holy Mountain.

Back in late September, I told you about a beer tasting dinner cruise with Waterways Cruises And Events, featuring beers from Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor).  My wife and I were scheduled to go on this cruise, but an unexpected schedule conflict meant that we had to cancel.  Hopefully, some of you out there learned about the cruise here and were able to take advantage of it.

For those of us who missed the last cruise, now is our second chance.  Coming up on Friday, December 2nd, Waterways Cruises And Events is hosting another dinner cruise on Lake Union and Lake Washington.  This cruise will feature beers from Pike Brewing Company.

Bread And Circuses Gets Gourmet At Two Beers Brewing Company / Seattle Cider Company

Roach Coach.  When I was growing up, any sort of mobile food truck you’d see around (usually at places like constructions sites, day-laborer gathering spots or run-down, industrial business parks) had this unfortunate moniker, no matter the actual name of the truck.  In fact, most food trucks back in those days didn’t have any type of name or brand. Most of the food those early trucks carried was also either pre-made and pre-packaged or, if it was made in the truck, it was pretty sub-standard cuisine.  It wasn’t the type of food you’d go out of your way to find by any means.

That’s all changed.  Food trucks today are not the ‘roach coaches’ of old.  Following health department regulations as strict as ‘brick and mortar’ restaurants (and in Washington, requiring an actual brick and mortar kitchen for most food preparation), today’s food trucks offer a diverse and delectable take on many different types of cuisine.  In Seattle, competition is fierce, so anything a food truck operator can do to set themselves apart from their competition in an appealing way is a big plus.

In 2015, when Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) and Seattle Cider Company decided to expand their taproom, The Woods, yet again, they were looking for a local food truck company to partner with.  They found that partner in Bread and Circuses, a local food truck that was enticed by the idea of such a partnership.   Together, Two Beers & Seattle Cider could offer food from Bread and Circuses inside The Woods taproom, without having to actually operate the kitchen themselves.  The result is an inviting combination of great craft beer, great local cider and great food, all in a comfortable, casual atmosphere and all under one roof.
