Cru Vs. Brew 2013 @ Amanti Vino (NJ)

Cru vs Brew

From our friends at Amanti Vino,

This is THE Amanti Vino event of the year!

That’s right, folks! We have just confirmed some of the most creative and talented minds in the wine/food industry for one night only. Join us Thursday night, October 17, as we welcome Robert Sinskey (winemaker/owner of RSV), Garrett Oliver (Brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery), Steve Mathiasson (top viticulturist and winemaker in Napa Valley) and Top Chef Ariane Duarte (CulinAriane) to the Woman’s Club of Upper Montclair for Cru Vs Brew – a charitable event for Intensive Therapeutics! Click here to learn more about their organization and its services.

The question of “What pairs better with food: wine or beer?” will be answered. AND YOU DECIDE!

Here’s how it works. The theme of this event is a competition!  For each of 5 sumptuous courses from Chef Ariane, lucky attendees will sample one beer and one wine. Rob and Steve will work together to pick the wine, while Garrett will feature one of his finest offerings from Brooklyn. Then you vote on a winner for each course! The age old question of which libation pairs better with food has been heavily debated for years and our special guests will lobby for your votes on which selection paired better with each course. Their debates are bound to get a bit heated, so expect the unexpected. But ultimately, YOU get to decide who wins!


The menu (Beer pairings to be posted soon!):

1st Course: Grilled octopus, sweety peppers, goat cheese, chorizo vinaigrette

2nd Course: Seared fennel dusted salmon, prawn, roasted maitake mushrooms, parsnip puree

3rd Course: Pork Duo: Roasted pork loin, pork belly, butternut squash bacon hash, apple cider reduction pork sauce

4th Course: A selection of Artisanal Cheeses.

Dessert: Chocolate caramel panna cotta, Amarone cherries

To purchase tickets to Cru vs Brew call the store (973) 509-WINE (9463). If you are unable to join us, but would like to make a donation to Intensive Therapeutics, please contact Sharon Sevrens at

We look forward to sharing this amazing evening with you in support of a worthy cause!
