On Friday, May 11th we are thrilled to present a Hop Stove Society event with Bale Breaker Brewing and Chef Joe Labatt of Tom Douglas Restaurants. The theme for the night is cooking for IPA. Not cooking with IPA, but conceptualizing and cooking dishes to pair with IPA. This is a cooking demonstration class, which means all you have to do is learn, eat and drink. You’ll walk away with recipes, a brain full of new ideas, a belly full of great food, and probably a bit of a buzz.

This Hop Stove Society event provides a chance for you to drink some great IPAs and eat some amazing food. Seattle Beer Week (May 10 thru 20) features no shortage of beer dinners, but this is more than that. It’s an educational experience with lots of beer and food. We are calling this Hop Stove Society event Cooking for IPA. See the menu and details below.

Usually, Tom Douglas Restaurants calls its cooking school in downtown Seattle the Hot Stove Society, but when we take it over it becomes the Hop Stove Society. For this event, that name rings especially true. We’ll drink hoppy beers, discuss hoppy beers, and cook food to pair with hoppy beers. If you like food and IPA, then this event is for you.

Last fall we did a similar Hop Stove class with Cloudburst Brewing.
Last fall we did a similar Hop Stove class with Cloudburst Brewing.

Even though it is the most beloved of all craft beer styles, outselling all others by a long shot, India Pale Ale is a notoriously difficult style of beer to pair with food. Its aggressive hop-forward character challenges even the best chefs. And speaking of the best chefs, we introduced Joe Labatt, Chef for Tom Douglas Restaurants, to four delicious IPAs from Bale Breaker Brewing and asked him to come up with a delicious dish to go with each. Now we invite you to join us as he shares his creations.

Chef Joe will cook, we’ll all drink, discuss, and most definitely eat.

Representatives from Bale Breaker Brewing will discuss their beers and their brewery, which happens to be right in the middle of a hop field on the outskirts of Yakima. By the way, the Yakima Valley produces more hops each year than any other region on earth. We’ll talk about that too. In the end, you’ll walk away knowing more about IPA and more about hops than anyone else at the bar. Of course, you’ll eat some great food too!
