The Diplomat Beach Resort Beer Dinner Featuring Odd Breed Wild Ales

Last week, The Diplomat's Point Royal restaurant hosted a five-course beer dinner paired with beers from Pompano Beach's Odd Breed Wild Ales. Executive Chef Jorge Negron and Odd Breed Co-Owners Matt Manthe and Dan Naumko led the dinner, sharing information about each course and the specific beer it was paired with. Odd Breed is one of very few breweries that focuses exclusively on brewing wild ales.

All of the food was fantastic! The Wahoo Tiradito, Steak Tartare, Blue Maine Mussels, and Sweet Corn Cake with Mascarpone Ice Cream, well I pretty much named everything but those were all of my favorites. You can read the specifics on the menu posted below.

As for the beers, I really enjoyed the Thai Rack Jasmine Rice Saison with Lemongrass and the Dinkelwheat Dry Hopped Spelt Saison. And the aroma from the Torito Rye Wild Baltic Porter, I'd make out with that all day! You can also see some descriptions of the beers below as well.

Jorge Matt and Dan
Service was excellent as was the conversation. The restaurant's General Manager told us they are considering making this type of beer dinner a regular occurrence there. Point Royal is scheduled to host another beer dinner with Civil Society Brewing on 9/20/18. Definitely check that out and reserve your tickets here! I'll post more details soon. Hopefully, the series continues beyond that as well.

Odd Breed Wild Ales can be found at 50 NE 1st St, Pompano Beach, FL 33060

The Diplomat Beach Resort (which you probably don't need my help) is located at 3555 South Ocean Drive, Hollywood, FL 33019
