Beer and Sausage and Beer Ice Cream at VOICE

​It is a dinner that begins with pheasant sausage coupled with a robust pumpkin beer and ends with a stout (beer) ice cream.

Along the way there will be more sausage and bratwurst, a beer-braised duck and an apple tart (to go with the beer ice cream).

Once again, Chef Michael Kramer of VOICE (in Hotel ICON, 220 Main) will host a Fall Harvest Beer Dinner on Tuesday, October 13, at 7 p.m., complete with four-course meal and a variety of different kinds of beer -- all for $55 a person (plus tax and tip).

Asked who would be attracted to such a dinner, Kramer says, "People that love food, but obviously the more beer drinker. If you're not a real beer drinker it's probably not going to be your thing. Somebody who likes a little bit more hardy food."

The fall season seems to spark a new round of creativity among brewmeisters, Kramer says, hence the assortment of beer infused with essense of pumpkin and other flavors.
