Five Course Stone Beer Dinner

Lost Abbey Brewmaster's Dinner
Lost Abbey Brewmaster's Dinner @
Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens!
MONDAY, JANUARY 22ND @ 6PM

Port Brewing and Stone go back, way back. Back ten years, back to our first pint of Stone tapped in a restaurant, even back to our ribbon cutting on July 26th, 1996! Fittingly, after Port Brewing was the first to put us on tap - we'll be having Port Brewing as the first brewery featured in our series of Brewmaster's Dinners at the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens! The night will be guided by Brewmaster Tomme Arthur who masterfully brews his series of Lost Abbey beers at our old stomping grounds on Mata Way. What is the Lost Abbey? To quote their website...

"Rooted in the Monastic and artistic Belgian brewing traditions, The Lost Abbey brewery project is the brainchild of Vince and Gina Marsaglia, former head brewer of Pizza Port in Solana Beach Tomme Arthur and Jim Comstock of Comstock and Associates who formed the partnership responsible for the stewardship of these beers."

The series includes Avant Garde, Lost and Found Abbey Ale, Red Barn Ale and Judgment Day. There will be five courses, with all four beers from the Lost Abbey series and, according to Tomme, "something [else] out of one of our barrels that we like and roll it out for the dinner." Tomme can be a bit modest, so let us translate - he'll be bringing one of his sought after barrel aged beers that’s bound to knock your socks off.

Food wise, the man known around Stone as "Chef" (aka Chef Carlton Greenawalt) will be teaming up with Port Brewing Co-Founder (and great cook!) Vince Marsaglia to come up with five great courses to match these excellent beers.

Seats are $55 + tax and gratuity. To request a reservation, call 760-471-4999 (Press 1 for the Bistro, then 2 for Reservations)



Take A Break From Burning Bridges
With Arrogant Bastard Ale,
And Build A Bridge With
An Arrogant Bastard
SATURDAY, JANUARY 6TH, 9AM - 4PM

We will be hand-mortaring a stone archway on either side of the bridge that goes across the stream in the "Gardens" area of the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens.

We need some volunteers. We will work in a couple teams, each team will consist of:
• Stone Layer / Mortar layer
• Two assistants to provide stone, concrete mortar and press DG in the cracks for a natural look (no experience necesssary!)
• There will also be a concrete mixing team.

We will be providing all food prepared artfully in our kitchen! Breakfast, Lunch and drinks will be provided. Bring your growler too...the fill will be on me.

Every volunteer will get "volunteer credits" that will earn you restaurant credits for your backbreaking labor! In consideration that we now have some pretty experienced volunteers, any volunteers who have previously put in ten or more stone wall building/mortaring hours will now be paid at a "Journeyman Volunteer" pay scale, which means you will earn restaurant credits at the rate of $25/hour (the "Apprentice Volunteer" scale is $15/hour in restaurant credits).

It will be sunny & mild, and we're starting early. So please bring with you:
• Work gloves (we have gloves available if you need a pair)
• Sunscreen / Hat
• Clothes that can get dirty
• Water bottle if you wish (we will also have plenty of water on hand)

Here's how to get here.

There will be different work for most levels of physical ability, although you should be able to bend your knees and work bent over at the ground.

Please email me back if you plan to attend and help out!

Cheers,
-Greg Koch
