Events at Loews Coronado Bay - San Diego

Beer Pairing Dinner

From the Chef: We talk a lot about local ingredients and ‘farm to table’ and in San Diego our two most abundant ingredients are really seafood and beer. At the event, we’ll highlight local seafood and show beer’s versatility by complementing dishes with the nuanced flavor profiles of a few special brews. Fans of Coronado Brewing Company’s Island IPA will be in luck, in addition to pairing this with the main course, a choice of King Crab Pappardelle Pasta or Apricot Braised Short Ribs, we will also be featuring the limited edition Hibiscus IPA, created in collaboration with Kona Brewing. The color is similar to rosé wine and the flavor is bright and fragrant, and the fruit notes will complement the first course options-- Yellowtail & Ginger Dumplings or Salmon Crudo. For dessert, we’ll be transforming our Blue Bridge Coffee Stout into a beer float with vanilla gelato. The rich coffee flavor of the stout and sweetness of the gelato will make the perfect ending to the meal.
