A good beer is always a welcome treat, and the right beer can really set off a meal. This Sunday at Sebastian’s Hideout restaurant in Springfield, beer is the main ingredient on the menu.

The restaurant is hosting a special five-course dinner, with a tasty brew chosen specially to accompany each dish. The dinner starts with crispy prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and white cheddar cheese fondue paired with Lefthand Polstar Pilsner. Next is a ginger-glazed roasted quail with buttery Bibb lettuce and mango Thai vinaigrette paired with Sierra Nevada Kellerweiss. Then comes the spice-seared rare tuna, spicy guacamole, chorizo cream sauce and sweet corn relish paired with Lefthand 400lb Monkey English-style Pale Ale. If you’re still able to move, you’ll be treated to beer-braised beef short ribs, cheddar and bacon potato puree, smoked tomato demi-glace paired with Sierra Nevada Torpedo. But wait there’s more: a milk stout chocolate cake with milk stout butterscotch and cinnamon ice cream paired with Sierra Nevada Porter. Top it all off with a Lefthand Sawtooth ESB (extra special bitter) beer, and you’ll need a wheelbarrow to get home.

Representatives from Sierra Nevada and Lefthand breweries will be “on tap” to talk about each beer and answer questions. Cost is $50 per person. Make reservations by calling Sebastian’s at 789-8988.
