We get it. Vodka and tequila are in the cool club, but too much of them, and they'll turn on you real quick. Sometimes you need a night out with trusty beer, and with today's offer — $40 for a three-course craft beer pairing for two at Library Alehouse in Santa Monica from Aug. 22-31 — you won't just get any old beer, you'll get high-quality stuff with good food to boot.
All beers are 10-oz. servings, and the food portions are filling but not oversized. Start by choosing an appetizer with its suggested beer pairing — sesame-seared ahi with Brouwerij West Belgian-style blond or papaya goat cheese quesadilla with Bear Republic Racer 5. Next it's onto the entrees: turkey meatloaf with Eagle Rock Solidarity; grilled fish tacos with Sierra Nevada Kellerweiss; or vegetable fajitas with Mad River Jamaica Red. Finally, the sweetest part, dessert: sticky toffee pudding with Old Rasputin ice cream from Sweet Rose Creamery paired with North Coast Old Rasputin. Does this sound like an experience you'll regret the next day? Doubtful. And if you can't wait to get your beer on, go to Library Alehouse during Sour Fest from July 25 through Aug. 4.
