It’s been a real long time since I’ve written a blog post. I am sorry for not putting out content far longer than I have written for this blog but I hope to put out content again soon. Anyway, it’s time to focus on new content rather than dwell on my long hiatus.
A few months ago, I was in Iligan City for work and I happened to be able to contact Pauly del Rosario of Fat Pauly’s Handcrafted Ales and Lagers since he’s based there. What started out as a simple hangout was turned into a nice beer tasting session with him, his then fiancee now wife and his friends.
Last March 21, 2014 was a special day for me. It was the first time that I hosted a beer and food pairing dinner for a group beyond my friends and family. It was a project 2 years in the making due to the request of my former Atenean professor for his class.
Further on, why did he request a Beer and Food Pairing dinner for his class? His class is about culture and the senses. I was a former student in his class and we both thought it was a great addition to the course. After the long process of trying to make it work, it finally happened.
With the participation of Barley Gastropub and Fat Pauly’s Handcraft Ales and Lagers, the five course dinner was set for eight people.
The menu was designed by Chef Justin of Barley Gastropub with the beer selection picked by yours truly.
