Quench your Thirst with Great Beer Dinners

Here are some menus that will help you decide between some of the best-looking beer dinners to come over the next couple of weeks. This should fulfill my beer dinner advertising quota for the next month. Don't take that the wrong way; I wouldn't post a menu (basically as free advertising) unless I would gladly put down greenbacks and attend myself. Of course, this is not always possible, so now I must make my own decisions. Bon Appetit and Cheers!
