Beachwood BBQ and Brewing, the craft beer Arcadia that first broke ground in Seal Beach, is hosting a unique beer-pairing dinner with Sierra Nevada at its newer Downtown Long Beach location next Wednesday, December 14th. The dinner intends to spread the word on Sierra's Beer Camp program, which allows guests to be play a Chico brewer for a day. So, what's hitting the restaurant's camping-influenced menu next week?

Beachwood chef and owner Gabriel Gordon plans a five-course menu on Wednesday that begins with a trail mix of fruit leathers and nut brittles paired with Sierra's Golden eState, and goes on to include outdoorsy dishes like dumplings with wild, foraged chanterelles and buffalo loin, paired with a special selection of the OG brewery's output, including its almond martzen and a juniper black ale. Shortly before dessert, the campy dinner culminates in a flight of Cheez Whiz served "three ways," with three single hop beers, showcasing cascade, chinook, and citra hops. Dessert, as if we even needed to tell you, will be s'mores. The $45 dinner starts at 6:00 P.M. and will be first come, first served, sans reservations. Check out the full menu below.
