Trappist Monks and Appian Way Lead to Three Taverns Beer Dinner at Stem Wine Bar October 19

Sip this saga. A 1994 European road trip and Trappist monks planted the figurative seed in Three Taverns Craft Brewery founder Brian Purcell’s mind. A home brew kit, 19 years and Roman reference to Three Taverns along the Appian Way later, Decaturite Purcell tapped Three Taverns Craft Brewery beer. Meet Purcell and hear the rest of the story when Stem Wine Bar hosts a Three Taverns Beer Dinner on Monday, October 19. Owner/chef Doug Turbush of Stem and Seed Kitchen & Bar and beverage manager Chris McNeill collaborate on the five-course menu with pairings of Jonah crab salad and Prince of Pilsen; lamb tartare with White Hops; Maple Leaf Farms duck, creamed Brussels sprouts, cider glaze and grain mustard with A Night in Brussels; quad-braised veal cheeks, mushroom shallot glaze and baby turnips with Quasimodo; and a spicy ending of local pear crisp, sour cherries and black pepper ice cream with Le Peche Mode. Dinner fills the 6:30-9:30 p.m. slot. Limited number of seats; buy tickets online in advance for $79 each (includes tax and gratuity).
