Ithaca Wild Game Night @ City Beer Hall

If you have not attended a Wild Game Night at The City Beer Hall, in Albany, you are missing one of the best food and beer pairs in this part of the world.  This dinner was even better than the Crossroads Brewery event two months ago.  Chef Dimitris was on his game.  I don't know many who can put out 120 wild boar chops cooked to perfection.  With extra waitstaff the food came out fast and hot.  Ithaca was able to prove they are more than just Flower Power.  Pairing beers from their Excelsior series helped.  The highlight for me was the last course.  Excelsior Brute Golden Sour Ale served with Venison Osso Bucco with marrow sauce over faro.

The food looked beautiful on the plates.  You can tell because even the owners are taking pictures
