One night of beer is enough to get us excited for the evening, so when we heard Hotel Viking was hosting 9 Weeks of Beer, we may have lost ourselves a bit. 

The relationship between food and beer has inspired Hotel Viking, Newport's historic landmark hotel, to host a 9-week beer dinner series featuring a specially crafted menu paired with a carefully selected craft beer. 

 
“Beer is a great replacement for water especially with marinades and even broth when making soups” say Chef Barry Correia, who views beer not only as a beverage, but also as a valuable asset to a host of delicious dishes. “Since the alcohol cooks off, recipes with beer are all about the aromas and flavors.”

 

9 Weeks of Beer begins March 9 and will take place every Wednesday through May 4. Dishes and beers vary from week to week. Schedule below.
