I've knocked back many a fine glass of Malbec at NOCA, and enjoyed some great cocktails there, too (like Hendrick's gin with a spherical ice cube and a carafe of tonic).
But it turns out that the restaurant's food also goes really well with beer.
To prove the point, they've done the exhaustive "research" of tasting all of Four Peaks' brews and coming up with a killer menu to pair with half a dozen beers.
Wagyu pastrami with Hop Knot IPA, anyone? Yep, you know you want it. Get a look at this: Four_Peaks_Tasting_Menu.doc
The six-course dinner takes place next Thursday, April 23, and is $85 (including beer pairings). Call 602-956-6622 for reservations.
