Rahr and Lakewood Breweries Kicked It Up At Luck Last Night For A Little Beer Week Fun

DSC05453by Steven Doyle

As NTX Beer week continues, last night was definitely a gem in its hat as two beloved breweries came together and made magic happen along with the boys at LUCK in Trinity Groves.

The dinner was nothing short of breath taking, as LUCK understands beer and pairings extremely well. Each course met with a different beer, culminating to a collaborative brew of both Rahr and Lakewoods making.  The meeting of beer minds is nothing particularly new to this industry, but it is always a little special when two local breweries, this time one from Dallas the other Fort Worth, come together and make a special kind of love. This particular brew is a Belgian-style dubbel. Balanced, smooth and malty sweet with a hint of spice from the Belgian yeast.

What was particularly fun  was that LUCK was beseeched NOT to create a Lakewood ice cream (as they have in the past) but to instead use a beer in a savory course, as they did with the venison.  Check out the dinner and the pairings below, and note that LUCK will have a new menu coming out next week. We will have photos of that as well.nd
