Scion Restaurant teams up with Sierra Nevada for a five course beer dinner featuring four beers from their limited release 30th Anniversary series.

In addition to the 30th Anniversary series offering, Scion will also be pouring the first beer from the highly anticipated Ovila Project of abbey ales.

For nearly 1000 years, monks have been brewing ales behind monastery walls. Their closely guarded traditions and techniques produced styles of beer unlike anything else in the world. These unique Trappist-style Abbey ales are known for their uncompromising quality and compelling flavor. In 2011, Sierra Nevada and the Trappist-Cistercian Abbey of New Clairvaux are working to bring this centuries-old tradition to America with Ovila—the nation’s only authentic Trappist-style Abbey Ale.

This series of three Belgian -style Abbey ales is made in accordance with the centuries-old tradition of the monks. Each beer will be only be available for a limited time and will rotate through the seasons. The first beer in the series, scheduled for release in March, will be a Belgian-style Dubbel brewed with authentic Trappist yeast. The second beer in the series, scheduled for release in July, will be a Saison, the traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale made in honor of the Monk’s dedication to labor in the fields surrounding their abbey. The third will be released in time for the holidays. It will be a Trappist-style Quadrupel rich with dark fruit flavors and the unique wine-like characters of these strong Abbey ales.

One lucky attendee will receive 2 FREE TICKETS to the SOLD OUT craft beer event of the year, SAVOR, held at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC!

Here is the full lineup below. Be sure to stop by Scion or call to purchase tickets.
