The RyeGate Steakhouse & Lounge

The RyeGate Steakhouse & Lounge loves their beers and they’re hosting a night to celebrate them.

Their November “Craft Brew” Club will take place on Thursday, November 29th 2012, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm and will be hosted by St. Ambroise’s Barry Pletch. The cost is $40 per person.

The evening will give guests an opportunity to sample the Vintage Ale, a rare brew by St. Ambroise Brewery, located in Montreal, Quebec. Brewed just once a year by Peter McAuslan and brew master, Ellen Bounsall, St-Ambroise Vintage Ale is the culmination of their experience and passion. Their previous vintage ales have won accolades and international awards and they expect no less from their 2012 series.

Made with a blend of wheat and barley malts, including Munich malt, this unfiltered ale has a lovely deep-orange colour, rich maltiness, hints of caramelized fruit that recall plum pudding, and a surprisingly crisp, balanced finish provided by classic Goldings hops.

The beer and food pairings for the evening will be as follows:

Beer 1 – St. Ambroise Vintage Ale

  • Mini Wheat Ale battered Fish and Chips
Beer 2 – St Ambroise Pale Ale
  • Curry Roasted Pepper Puree, finished with a coconut and ale drizzle

Beer 3 – St Ambroise Oatmeal Stout

  • Oat-encrusted wild boar tenderloin satays, rubbed in our signature spice blend and served with a dark chocolate and stout scented demi glace reduction

Beer 4 – McAuslan Scotch Ale

  • Vanilla Bean and Scotch ale soaked cranberry bread pudding, served warm, topped with toasted cashews and finished with a butterscotch drizzle
