Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder are at Small Bar on Division Street in Chicago for a beer pairing dinner featuring beers from Three Floyds. In episode 66 of the Hop Cast Brad and Ken go behind the scenes to see what it takes to prepare a dinner that has a beer to go with each course. Stephen Freshnock joins Ken in the kitchen to talk with Chef Todd Davies about his food plans and thoughts. Brad and Ken also have a chance to talk with Phil McFarland, who helped put the dinner together. Phil talks about future dinners coming up and why beer and food make a perfect combination. If you were able to make it to the dinner, we are sure you didn’t go away unsatisfied. Each course of food was amazing and worked wonderful together with the beer.
