Honey-Basil Ale at Luce & Hawkins

May 17 , 2011

Been away from the old Brewhouse Blog for awhile, been keeping busy at the smoker and in the brewhouse getting ready for Long Island Craft Beer Week.

On Monday, May 23rd, James Beard Award winning Chef
Keith Luce will be preparing a three-course dinner pairing with five of my beers:

- Honey-Basil Ale
- Vlad the Inhaler
- Hell Gate Golden Ale
- Hellsmoke Porter
- Long Island Potato Stout

All but one of the above beers will also be on tap for Long Island Craft Beer Week at The Cortland in Bay Shore on Friday May 20th. The Honey-Basil Ale will only available at the beer dinner at Luce & Hawkins in Jamesport on Monday May 23rd (7 PM).  Part of my farm-and-garden series of beers using local, seasonal ingredients. In this case, the honey is from Huntington's High Meadow Farm. Honey-gold in color, approach-ably tea-like and dry. Starts with a sweep of nectar with floral undertones,  and finishes with some Fuggle hop bitterness. The basil lends some astringency. A very sessional 3.8% ABV.

Seating is limited, a few tickets are left (going, going...). This is the first of a series of local wine/beer dinners being created by Lenn Thompson. For more information and ticket information see Lenn’s
