We’re excited to see that the Civic Kitchen & Drink will be hosting a rare four course dinner pairing with Spencer’s Trappist Beer (the first and only certified Trappist Beer made in America, by the monks of St. Joseph Abbey).

Chef Rick Araujo and GM Sarah Lee are delighted to host a Spencer Trappist Ale Dinner on Tuesday, May 23.  This is a very rare opportunity to taste a variety of unique Spencer Trappist Beer and the dinner is sure to sell out.  The monks at St. Joseph Abbey in Spencer, MA brew the beer themselves; it is the only certified Trappist Beer made in the USA. Civic Kitchen & Drink is honored to present Spencer Trappist Beer and celebrates this extraordinary and one-of-a-kind local brewery.

The four course dinner features:
Buttermilk Fried Chicken skewers with sweet potato waffles and a trappist orange marmalade glaze / Paired with Trappist Ale

Grilled Swordfish with a green peppercorn hollandaise sauce and potato au gratin / Paired with Trappist IPA

Chinese Five Spiced Duck over a smoked gouda polenta and smothered haricot vert / Beer Pairing to be announced!
