Italian Craft Beer Dinner | Friday October 17th, 2014, 7pm- 10pm


What: Italian Craft Beer Dinner

When: Friday October 17th, 2014 7pm-10pm

Where: Aroma Thyme Bistro, 165 Canal St, Ellenville NY

Details:  It's time for Italian Wine to take a backseat.  We are showing off Italian Craft Beer at our next beer dinner.  Italian craft beer seems to get  lost to all the famous wine that comes from Italy.  Many people would never, and don't, know that Italy makes outrageous craft beer.  Join Chef Marcus Guiliano as he pairs Italian beer with Aroma Thyme's Green Certified© cuisine.

Many people think of Moretti (owned by Heineken)  and Peroni (owned by Miller) for Italian beer.  Those may be Italian indeed.   But Italy offers so much more on the craft beer scene.  The boutique craft beer movement has not excluded at all.  In fact it's stronger than ever.  In Mario Batali's Eatly Italian superstore, in NYC, there is row after row of Italian craft beer.

This dinner is five beers and four courses for $65. RSVP  to 845-647-3000.

Aroma Thyme has one of the best stocked bars with 250 craft beers, 250 fine wines & 250 boutique spirits.  The restaurant is all about supporting local, but beyond that they pride themselves in small independent brands from all over the globe.  This purchasing philosophy encompasses bar and kitchen alike.  “We want to help a family pay for dance lessons for their daughter rather than a CEO's third vacation home”, says owners Jamie & Marcus Guiliano.  Marcus Guiliano is an award winning chef who was named “One of the Five Top Food Activists Making a Change” from One Green Planet. This award, along with many others, is evident from the gourmet sustainable socially responsible cuisine Aroma Thyme serves. The restaurant has also been flooded with wards ranging from “Best New Restaurant”, “Best Organic Restaurant”, “Best Beer Events”, Wine Spectator “Award Winning Wine List” and Trip Advisors number one restaurant in their area.

These are but a few that initially come to mind..."  -Catskill Chronicle

Falling (September 12 – 28)
By Deanna Jent

This engaging play explores the dynamic and complicated reality of a family with an autistic young man. Semi-autobiographical, the play bravely asks “How do you love someone who is difficult to love?”

When a relative comes to visit, the Martin family is thrown out of equilibrium and their essential, familiar routine is thrown out of whack. For their autistic son Josh, routine is paramount.

“This heartfelt and nuanced family drama is shot through with dark humor. FALLING soars…the play packs a powerful punch.”
-New York Post

“Audiences will be falling in love with this extraordinary piece of theatre.”

Oktoberfest - In September?
Oktoberfest traditionally starts in the third weekend in September and ends the first sunday of October.
What is Oktoberfest?
It began with the Royal Wedding on 12 October 1810.

Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on 12 October 1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event. The fields were renamed Theresienwiese ("Theres'a Fields") to honor the Crown Princess, although the locals have since abbreviated the name simply to "Wiesn". Horse races in the presence of the royal family marked the close of the event that was celebrated as a festival for the whole of Bavaria. The decision to repeat the horse races in subsequest years gave rise to the tradition of Oktoberfest.
The Oktoberfest continues in 1811
In 1811, an added feature to the horse races was the first Agricultural Show, designed to boost Bavarian agriculture. The horse races, which were the oldest - and at one time - the most popular event of the festival are no longer held today. But the Agricultural Show is still held every three years during the Oktoberfest on the southern part of the festival grounds.

Freyeisen-  Small producer from Germany. Hay, red berries on the nose. Tart apple, strawberry on the palate. Force carbonated to 2.8 bars of pressure (just under 3 that would make us pay the champagne tax!)

Weidman & Groh Speierling – From 10 miles outside of Frankfurt. Originally a brandy producer. Speierling is a member of Sorbus Domestica ( looks like a cross between an apple and a pear.) Now only grown in Germany, the last tree was cut down in the south of England over 100 years ago.
     The fruit is blended with traditional cider apples to add tannic structure. Golden Fruit/ Golden Raisin, honey, baked apple on the palate. Great acidity.

Slyboro Hidden Star – Slyboro’s entry level. A blend of northern spy and liberty apples, from the oldest U-Pick orchard in NYS. A hint of residual sugar (35 g/liter) with a great acidity, and medium body.
  A little parmesan on the nose, red fruit on the palate.

Manoir de Kinkiz Cournaille  - From the AOP Cournaille in Brittany. Traditional keeved style. Brisket, peat smoke on the palate. A hint of residual sugar. Full bodied, great fall cider

Plus a couple of other ciders.

Rowan Imports is NYS first cider specific importer. Starting with only a handful of Asturian Sidra, their book now includes over 50 ciders from around the world. The focus still remains on small terroir driven producers, making ciders through traditional methods specific to their home region.

    Jeff is one of Rowan Imports first employees. He was tempted away from the wine/restaurant world by Rowan, and the dream of bringing true cider to the masses.

History and significance of Belgian beer

Beer in Belgium varies from the popular pale lager to lambic beer and Flemish red. Belgian beer-brewing's origins go back to the Middle Ages. There are approximately 125 breweries in the country, ranging from international giants to microbreweries. In Europe, only Germany, France and the United Kingdom are home to more breweries. Belgian breweries produce about 800 standard beers. When special one-off beers are included, the total number of Belgian beer brands is approximately 8,700. Belgians drink 93 liters of beer a year on average. Beer has been made in Belgium since at least the Middle Ages. It is believed today that beer was brewed at some monasteries during this period; however, no written proof exists. The Trappist monasteries that now brew beer in Belgium were occupied in the late 18th century primarily by monks fleeing the French Revolution. However, the first Trappist brewery in Belgium (Westmalle) did not start operation until 10 December 1836, almost 50 years after the Revolution. That beer was exclusively for the monks and is described as "dark and sweet." The first recorded sale of beer (a brown beer) was on 1 June 1861.

In Belgium, beer is more than just a frothy beverage - it is a culture. With over 450 different varieties, many Belgian beers have personalized beer glasses in which only that beer may be served. The shape of each glass enhances the flavor of the beer for which it is designed. This tradition may seem like behavior reserved for wine snobbery, but Belgians take their beer seriously - and with good reason. The country has enjoyed an unparalleled reputation for specialty beers since the Middle Ages. Connoisseurs favor Belgian beers for their variety, real flavor and character.

It is easy to see the depth to which beer has become one with Belgium's culture. What other country has a driving tour through the countryside called the Beer Route? After a day of castle hopping, visitors can stop by one of the local cafés to enjoy some chocolate with their beer, as their worries melt away. Whether you were visiting a brewery, sitting in a café or attending a festival, visitors will remember the first time they tasted their favorite brew.
