On Wednesday, August 7th, some friends and I are putting on a Peach Harvest Beer Dinner at Cliff’s Edge’s Restaurant in Silverlake to celebrate the culmination of our third year of adventures with delicious Masumoto organic peaches and nectarines in the world of craft beer. This will be a private, 5-course meal prepared by Cliff’s Edge Chef Vartan Abgaryan and Culinary Cocktail Mixologist Matt Biancaniello, who have designed the 5-course menu with food and drink pairings to feature Masumoto Family organic peaches and nectarines in every sip and bite. We held a very small dinner for the same occasion last year, and it proved to be an incredible, uniquely intensive and immersive experience. This year, we have the opportunity to open up the party to a few more people, and there are a few tickets still left. If you are interested in attending, BM me for information about making a reservation. I have every expectation that this year’s dinner event will be even better than last year’s, so if you are a lover of craft beer or great food or especially delicious peach beers, I would highly encourage you to attend. It’s going to be fantastic.

The price is $75/person, plus tax and gratuity, which covers the 5-course meal plus drink pairings (vegetarian option available). This year’s event will begin on Wednesday, August 7th at 7:30 PM with a cocktail reception, with dinner to follow at 8:00 PM. Cliff’s Edge is in Silverlake at 3626 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026.

Just for a little background, for the past several years, I have organized a small team of beer lovers to acquire and distribute Masumoto fruit to our brewer friends, in an effort to initiate increased production of wonderful peach beers. Our fruit has been used to create beers like Lost Abbey’s Veritas 010, Veritas 011, and Box Set Track #11: "The Devil Went Down to Georgia", as well as The Bruery’s Sour in the Rye with Peaches, and underground legends like Greenhill Brewery Chat Flou! and Hoparazzi Mission Impecheable. This dinner will feature some of these, as well as other craft beers and cocktails, all made with this same Masumoto fruit. It will offer not only an intensive focus on a single spectacular ingredient, but also a glimpse at the diversity possible when different artisan producers design their creations to showcase different facets of that same core component.

Finally, as Cliff’s Edge is graciously closing down their entire dining room for our event, I’ll just add that you can feel free to arrive as early as their regular opening time at 6:00 PM to join in on some “pre-game” drinks in an informal bottle-share featuring additional peach beers that we all bring in (if you have any, please contribute!), or by purchasing one of the delightful market-driven cocktails made by Matt Biancaniello at the bar. His drinks are amazing.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
