I love when local places branch out and try new things - Izzy's is now doing beer-pairing dinners at some of their locations! We headed out to the Fort Wright location for their West Sixth Beer Pairing Dinner.
Their next beer dinner is THIS THURSDAY MAY 8 (Ft Wright location) - they are highlighting Sweetwater Brewing Company from Atlanta, GA. For just $25 - you get appetizer, dinner, dessert, one full beer paired with each course and you keep the glass! Make your reservations today by calling 859-331-4999.
And then they did it - I mean - they REALLY DID IT. They served us DEEP. FRIED. OREOS. What in the sam hell?! They paired it with the West Sixth Amber Ale - and even added some of the ale into the frosting. I have never had fried oreos and honestly - didn't think I'd like them. Boy was I wrong! They were like floating on a cloud with George Clooney fanning you! I mean you just have no idea how amazing they were. I thought they would be too rich but the chocolate and icing just melted inside so it was like a giant fluffy donut cookie. This isn't on the regular menu - so you just have to cross your fingers that it's what they pick for dessert again. Oh my my! John (manager) did tell me the trick to these is using frozen cookies.
Why Should You Go? I still can't believe the deal - 3 full beers, 3 courses and a souvenir - for just $25! You gotta call and make reservations today by calling 859-331-4999! The next one is coming up THIS THURSDAY! It was really fun too - John is a great manager and the staff is very accommodating.
Disclosure: Izzy's provided this dinner to me in exchange for a blog post but all opinions are my own.
We each got a cone - Larry is a sprinkle fan while I like the chocolate dipped in cherry. Good stuff here! The ice cream was really creamy too - good stuff!
