Tom Douglas’s name has been synonymous with incredible cuisine for years in Seattle. And since opening Brave Horse Tavern in the heart of SLU, he now ranks up there with the big boys in beer. With Beer Czar Kayle Thompson heading up the campaign for great brews on tap, patrons can enjoy a few dozen of the tastiest beers and ciders found in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
With such quality fare, it should come as no surprise that Brave Horse should be host to some of the classiest beer dinners in Seattle. Next week is sure to be one of their finest: America’s favorite hunting dinner. Chef Brian Walczyk and Beer Czar Kayle Thompson are teaming up with Double Mountain Brewery to pair this spectacular 5-course feast with game meats and brews.
