The Blue Star in November: Belgian-style Craft Beer Dinner


On Nov. 14 at 6:30pm, The Blue Star is set to host a funky Belgian Beer Dinner, featuring a five-course meal paired with five beers from Colorado Springs-based Bristol Brewing Co. and the Fort Collins-based Funkwerks.  Special guests and owners of the two breweries – Mike Bristol (Bristol Brewing) and Brad Lincoln (Funkwerks) – will offer expert opinions on the beers. 

On the menu:

  • Funkwerks Saison, a GABF 2012 gold-medal winner, paired with Moules Frites (apple tarragon compound butter, caramelized shallot, and a farmhouse broth)
  • Funkwerks Tropic King, an Imperial Saison, paired with California Timbal (crab and avocado salad, banana kewpie mayo, short grain pilaf, and crispy snaps)
  • Funkwerks Deceit, a GABF 2012 gold-medal winner, paired with Fall Scallop (seared sea scallop, spiced pumpkin bread, maple pumpkin butter, and ginger bread bacon)
  • Bristol Belgian Dubel paired with Dry Fried Wings (crispy chicken wings, apricot duck sauce, and smoked pork fried rice)
  • Bristol Belgian Tripel paired with Tripel Brauten (beer brined beef, apple kraut, triple mustard, and garlic confit whipped potato)
