Beginning this evening, July 15th, Tinto will showcase Spanish beers on draft and by the bottle. Starting at 5 p.m. you can learn about these beers with the help of Kevin from Shelton Brothers and Jason from Bella Vista Beverage. Along with the new beers from Spain, Tinto is also rolling out new pintxos this week.
The beers are available as part of a $20 pairing at the bar, that features three pintxos paired with three samples of beer. Or you can order the beer a la carte for between $7 and $25 per bottle.
First some Rioja, and now some cider.
Tinto’s second installment of their monthly pairing dinners is welcoming in the world of European cider. Every year in the Basque country, cider houses tap their cider barrels, and the people gather together, drinking the apple wine straight from those barrels. It’s called the “txotx,” and Tinto wants to join in on the celebrations.
On Thursday, April 4th, at 7pm, sidra (cider) will be poured from three regions in Spain and France, from Asturias to Irouleguy, and their accompanying menu looks stellar.
The dinner will only set you back $50 a person, and as is tradition, the ciders are bottomless. Make your reservation soon.
This Thursday, Jose Garces‘s Basque-inspired restaurant, Tinto, will be hosting the first in their new series of pairing dinners. For the first menu out of the gate, they’re doing rare, aged and “coveted” Riojas and setting them up against the seasonal Basque fare of chef de cuisine Dave Conn.
The dinner will run you $100 per person. Seating is limited. Reservations are required. And as of right now, there are still some seats available. Yeah, they’re pricey, but the Garces team is calling it “an extravagant tasting and dinner” and I’m not going to argue. Check out the full menu and pairings after the jump.
