LYON HALL to host HITACHINO Beer Dinner for Japan Relief – 6/28

Over the last year Lyon Hall has fallen in love with the Kiuchi Brewery and their line of Hitachino Nest beers. As we watched with the world the tragedy and devastation that unfolded on March 11, 2011, we couldn’t help but wonder what we could do to assist in the recovery. Solution: order a ton of beer and get inspired by the flavors, culture, and hospitality of Japan and put on a dinner.

Lyon Hall Beer Director David McGregor, Chef de Cuisine- Andy Bennett, and B-United International’s Ron Fischer will be hosting a very special Beer Dinner. The five course tasting menu has been prepared utilizing classic French techniques and Asian ingredients.
