Two beers with every course.... the Detroit Beer Week beer dinner at Cliff Bell's last night.

Orange & coriander cured gravlox with crisp bagel chip, micro green salad & ginger creme fraiche.
Kuhnhenn's Tangerine wit, & Kuhnhenn's Double Rice IPA.
Mrs Cicerone says Wit. Mr Cicerone says DRIPA.

Beer braised Berkshire pork belly with roasted apple, white beans and lardons (it's pork fat).
Kuhnhenn Festbier. Dragonmead Octoberfest Marzen.
We both agreed on Kuhnhenn's Fest.

Duck confit with roasted pumpkin & root vegetable ragout with pumpkin ale reduction.
Dragonmead Final Absolution Tripel. Dragonmead Lil's Grumpkin Pumpkin ale.
Mrs Cicerone says Pumpkin ale. Mr Cicerone says Final Absolution. (He's wrong.)

Chocolate mousse parfait with macerated raspberries and solar syrup. (Mr Cicerone says his dessert had loads of blueberries. I think he was hallucinating.)
Kuhnhenn's Solar Eclipse Imperial Stout. Dragonmead's Under The Kilt Wee Heavy.
We both agreed on Kuhnhenn's Solar Eclipse.

Yes- there was TWO beers with every course. All this for $30. The dinner was well attended, and we were very pleasantly surprised to see Barry Johnson, owner of Saugatuck Brewery there!
