A Sign of the Impending Beer Apocalypse?

I received a press release today for something I would never have thought possible: a blueberry beer dinner. The good folks at the Cambridge Common restaurant here in Cambridge, Mass host a lot of solid beer events and focus on promoting good beer here in the Boston area. I can’t decide if this event is just another example of the restaurant’s dedication to good beer or some frightening omen. In any event, here are the details:

When: Thursday, August 9th, 6:30pm
Where: Cambridge Common Restaurant
Contact: Suzanne Schalow, 617.547.1228

The Dinner begins at 6:30 with a taste of Atlantic Brewing’s Bar Harbor Blueberry.

The first course of the evening is Cold Blueberry Soup with Fresh Mint; paired with Newport Brewing’s Rhode Island Blueberry Ale.

Next in line is a Mixed Green Salad with Lime Vinaigrette and Fresh Blueberries; paired with Sea Dog Blue Paw Wheat Ale.

The third course of the evening is a Slow-Roasted Half Chicken with Homemade Blueberry BBQ Sauce, Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and Haricot Vert; paired with Sebago Bass Ackwards Berryblue Ale.

Finally, the dessert course offers Cheesecake with Blueberry Sauce & Fresh Whipped Cream; paired with Wachusett Blueberry Ale.

Tickets for the event are $35 (excluding tax & gratuity). Reservations a must, by calling Cambridge Common Restaurant, 617.547.1228.

Cambridge Common is honored to be your favorite neighborhood restaurant and local beer & burger bar ~ we have 24 beers on tap, 12 of which rotate like nobody’s business, plenty of kick-ass bottles, and a sizzlin’ burger for only $4.95. We dedicate a tremendous amount of time researching the latest & greatest brews and how to make them available to YOU! You can find us on Mass Ave, halfway between Harvard & Porter Squares, on the red line.

  1. I definitely favor “impending beer apocalypse.” Here in Atlanta our main microbrewery, Sweetwater, has a blueberry beer, aptly named “Blue.” It… is… atrocious…

  2. Not a huge fan of blueberry-infused beers, but the menu looks great. And I always wanted to check that joint out when I lived there . . .
