The 2012 Oregon Garden Brewfest will be held in Silverton, OR, on April 27 -28. For the first time, festival organizers are planning a Brewer's Tasting Dinner, to be held at 7pm on Thursday, April 26. The complete menu is listed at the bottom of this post.
The dinner will feature six small plates, each paired with a unique beer. I think this menu looks great! This will be my first beer dinner, and I'm looking forward to experiencing the pairings! In addition, the brewers will talk about each of the beers during the course of the meal.
Tickets ($40 each) are still available for the dinner, but are limited. If you'd like to attend the dinner, you can order tickets here. Please note, the menu is subject to change.

In the nature of full disclosure, the festival organizers have invited me to the Brewer's Dinner and the Brewfest as a guest. Isn't that nice?
