Bavarian Inn Restaurant to host ‘Bourbon Dinner’ Sept. 15
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bourbon, America’s original distilled spirit, will be celebrated with a parade of Southern-style treats at the Bavarian Inn Restaurant’s upcoming “Bourbon Dinner” event on Friday, Sept. 15 beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The Inn is teaming up with the award-winning Buffalo Trace Distillery of Franklin County, Kentucky, to present a five-course dinner matched with the distillery’s most sought-after bourbon brands. Guests will also be treated to tasting notes and expert commentary from Buffalo Trace’s Jack DeMarr. Buffalo Trace is the oldest continuously operating distillery in America. The U.S. government allowed Buffalo Trace to produce spirits throughout Prohibition “for medicinal purposes.”
The starter courses are wild mushroom panna cotta and bourbon truffle gelée with roasted garlic baguette, accompanied by Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon, followed by a Boilermaker beer waffle, crispy chicken and house-cured pork belly with chipotle bourbon maple syrup, paired with Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
Next braised butternut squash soup with bourbon creme, pepitas and crispy potatoes, served with Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
Following a Sorbet du Jour, the entrée is smoked pork loin with Traverse City cherry barbecue sauce, topped with bourbon-glazed shrimp with collard greens. This course comes with a 1792 Small Batch Bourbon Old Fashioned cocktail.
And for dessert, guests will be enjoying a sweet slice of bourbon pecan pie with creamed bourbon & brown sugar ice cream.
Price for this special “Bourbon Dinner” event is $70 per person, which includes all food and listed beverages, tax, and gratuity. Reservations and prepayment are required. Reservations may be made by calling 1-800-BAVARIA or 989-652-9941. For more information, go to www.bavarianinn.com and view the calendar of events.
