Dogfish Head Beer Party at Brat Haus This Sunday to Benefit Beer for Brains Foundation

How much do you know about Dogfish Head Brewery? Well, if you know anything at all about the Delaware brewhouse, it's likely to that it produces some pretty crazy beers, including the very boozy 120 Minute IPA.

We're sorry to say you won't be able to try that beer at this Sunday's Dogfish Head Brewery-centic event at Brat Haus in Scottdale. But the beer-paired dinner, which is hosted by Zia Records, will feature three different Dogfish Head IPAs and one special, vintage brew.

Here's the menu:

First Course
Charcuterie platter with Dogfish Head bacon, Landjager sausage, pickled veggies, pretzel stick and beer cheese
Paired with Dogfish Head's Sixty-One IPA

Second Course Kale salad with tomato vinaigrette, roasted corn, goat cheese, dried fruit and nuts Paired with Dogfish Head's Aprihop IPA (brewed with apricot juice)

Third Course Dogfish Head Bratwurst, special for this event only Paired with vintage Burton Baton (oak-aged IPA)

Fourth Course Individual Drunken Date cake Paired with vintage Olde School (barley wine-style ale)

In addition to the food and drink, the event will feature a silent auction with prizes such as concert and sport ticket bundles, a Dogfish Head turntable, and VIP tickets to Rare Affair. In past years the Rare Affair has brought dozens of breweries to Arizona for an all-you-can-drink, blow out event.

All attendees will also take home a Music to Drink Beer To CD sampler and a print by artist Marq Spustam.

The dinner, which will be held on Sunday, April 12 at 5 p.m., is a fundraiser for Phoenix Children's Hospital and the Beer for Brains Foundation, and a kick-off for Record Store Day. The Beer for Brains Foundation -- a non-profit organization of craft-beer fans, distributors, and brewers -- raises awareness about brain cancer and money to find a cure.

Tickets for the 21-and-over event cost $33.30 and can be purchased at any Valley Zia Records location. For more information check the Zia Records website.
