Charles Bamforth is teaming up with Chef Tony Gruska for their second beer dinner at Monticello Cuisine on Sunday, Jan. 26. Bamforth is a distinguished professor of brewing science at UC Davis and one of the world’s most prominent beer experts. He has spoken with humor and passion about ales and lagers extensively on television, radio and at prominent venues around the world.

Bamforth is the author of numerous books, including “Beer Is Proof God Loves Us.” His most recent book is “Flavor — Practical Guides for Beer Quality.”

In December, Bamforth discussed beer and food pairings on Capital Public Radio’s “Insight” program, and last year, he held his first “beer dinner” at Monticello.

“Across the globe, beer is the great drink of relaxation — and moderation,” Bamforth has written. “It is consumed in bars, clubs and sports grounds — in fact, anywhere adults congregate.” That would certainly include restaurants. “There is a beer for every occasion, and so many foods to pair with beer,” Bamforth added.

Gruska said the menu for the beer dinner likely will include seafood — the precise choice of fish or shellfish will depend on the best options available on the day of the dinner. There also will be a course featuring beer-braised organic duck leg. Each course will be accompanied by a beer brewed somewhere in this region, selected by Bamforth.

Bob and Donna Wren will provide live music throughout the evening.  The program and five-course meal start at 5:30 p.m.  The cost is $70 per person. Reservations and a $25 non-refundable deposit are required. For more information, contact Rhonda Gruska at 530-792-8066 or email [email protected].
