Wine-pairing dinners are heavily prevalent in the fine-dining world, with beer pairings being less common. So it was with excitement and curiosity, that I recently attended a five-course “Farm to Table” dinner at the luxurious Langham Pasadena hotel with cuisine prepared by The Terrace restaurant Chef de Cuisine Erik Schuster with beer pairings by Pasadena's own Craftsman Brewing Company. In addition to the Ale and Lager served, The Langham's own Chef Schuster incorporated the diverse beers into his cooking and preparation of the dishes. And while it is now already November, you can celebrate Oktoberfest year round with a cold glass of Craftsman Beer at Langham's own The Tap Room.
