Winter Welcome Dinner – December 5th, 2014

Coho RestaurantCoho Restaurant Winter Welcome Dinner will get you in the holiday spirit with a special Old World-Inspired dinner featuring holiday food traditions paired with authentic rich beers of the season Friday, December 5th at 6 p.m. Start your evening at the town of Friday Harbor tree lighting, stroll to Coho’s special Winter Welcome Dinner and make an evening of it with a stay at the Tucker House Inn.

When it comes to beer styles, none are more welcoming as the traditional English “Winter Warmer.” Throughout history, beer of somewhat higher alcohol, big malt presence, and richness has been enjoyed for the winter holidays. Wassail, a festival to celebrate winter and the beer that goes with it, predates the Christian era. The “wassail” tradition blends robust ales with mixed spices, before hops became the chief “spice” in beer. Brewed at the Old Brewery in Tadcaster, Yorkshire England, Samuel Smith’s Winter Welcome was first imported to the US in 1990. It was the first imported winter seasonal beer and is celebrating its Silver Jubilee in the States this year. It will be our featured beer of the evening. From English Old Stock and Belgian-style ales to brown ales, we’ll select 4 other beers to round out the evening including a Christmas beer.

Jhon Gilroy, Regional Manager for specialty beer importer Merchant du Vin, is recently back from the old country and will regale us with tales of the breweries, the traditions, and the histories of the iconic beers poured along Chef Bill’s carefully curated dishes.

Reservations are highly recommended. Chef Bill will present a 5 course dinner. Dinner is $45 and the optional beer pairing $25. Make a night of it – the Tucker House Inn will offer $99 queen Jacuzz guest rooms for those attending the dinner.
