Craft Beer Paired Dinner at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar

By Ruth Berman & Mike Arra

Creative Cuisine + Craft Beers = a “Brewnique” pre-Valentine’s Day Dinner Option

Bon Beer Voyage, a specialty tour company for craft beer lovers, will partner with Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar chef Ryan Mitchell to host a four-course gourmet dinner paired with a selection of four outstanding craft beers from across the spectrum of the brewer’s art. 

Bon Beer Voyage will be hosting this gourmet beer-paired dinner at Fleming’s, 4322 West Boy Scout Blvd. in Tampa, on Friday, February 10, 2012 at 7:00 p.m as part of their Third Annual Beer Safari Weekend Tour in Tampa. “The dinner sells out every year,” said Mike Arra, beer guide for Bon Beer Voyage. “We limit the seating at the dinner like we do on our tours in order to be able to offer a really special and innovative culinary experience for our guests.”

A limited number of seats at this dinner are available for $76.40 per person for those who are not participating in the rest of the weekend’s events. The price includes dinner, beer pairings, tax and gratuity. There are also a few spaces still available for the Weekend Beer Safari, which includes 5 brewery visits, beer paired meals, a ghost tour and more.
