A Victory for Maia
An Oktoberfest Beer Dinner featuring Victory's beers seems to be a fitting start to beer events at the relatively new Maia in Villanova, PA. Four courses at $39 seems around the right point at which to not gouge the wallet or bust the waistline. The four-course menu will be available on 10/1 for the kickoff dinner and a la carte as individually priced menu items (between $8-$15) through October 31st during dinner hours. Here are the details from a recent press release. Wiesen (a lighter, more modern lager) with a choice of: ~House-Smoked Salmon with German pickles, red onion and egg salad ~Ballotine of Amish Chicken with cassis mustard Festbier (a malty lager) with a choice of: ~Spiced Corned Duck Breast with celery root slaw ~Curried Herring with green apples and endive Braumeister Harvest Pils (a special, wet-hopped pilsner with a bracing, herbal bite over layers of soft and smooth malt flavor) with a choice of: ~Coriander-Crusted Scallops with caramelized Brussels sprouts, potato puree and preserved lemon ~Applewood Smoked Pork Chop with braised red cabbage and apples Moonglow Weizenbock (a dark amber beer with a delicious, spicy fruit aroma) with a choice of: ~Shellbark Farms Goat Cheese Fritters with smoked almonds and local baby greens ~Grilled Salmon with lemon jam and crispy shallots Maia is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
