Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Tonight, Jensen Cummings of Brewed Food is taking the beer-and-food-pairing concept to another level. Along with chef Elijah Odell of Highland Tap and Burger, he'll prepare a Brewed Food dinner at Highland Tap, with each course incorporating actual ingredients from New Belgium Brewing Beers (yeast, wort, barley, hops). The meal will include four courses and an appetizer during the reception, as well as six New Belgium brews.

Diners can dig into dishes like barrel-smoked trout rillette with spent-grain flatbread and orange-peel crème fraiche; pork-belly bugolgi with yeasted kimchi and dry-hopped sriracha; spent-grain bread pudding with blackberry barleywine poached pears and hoppy pine-nut brittle; and more. Tickets are $50; find out more on the Highland Tap Facebook page.

The dinner is part of a Brewed Food Tour, which will also pop up at Harman's Eat and Drink on February 11, and Rebel Restaurant on February18.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
