Hope you are hungry: During Beer Week, Seattle restaurants pair up with craft brewers for multi-course pairing feasts.

We’ve been covering the drinking events over on Sauced, but our city’s restaurants are also playing host to a ton of beer-pairing dinners in honor of Seattle Beer Week—here are the five that sounded most promising to us.

Most of the meals are comprised of five courses, each course paired with a different beer. We called around to get as many menu details as possible, but some of the restaurants had yet to finalize their food.

This Saturday, May 21 Stone Brewing will be at Elemental at Gasworks for a five-course beer pairing dinner from 6 to 8pm. It costs $75 per person and reservations are recommended. The menu hasn’t been set.

On Monday, May 23: Crow hosts Pike Brewing for a five-course meal from 6 to 8pm, which runs $50 per person. The menu includes housemade pretzels, carved porchetta, and spring carrot cake for dessert.

Also on the 23rd: SoDo’s Epic Ales heads to Tilikum Place Cafe for a meal that begins at 6:30pm. That’s $70 per person.

Another meal with Cali’s Stone Brewing: Stone co-hosts a dinner at Volunteer Park Cafe that will take place starting at 7pm on Thursday, May 26 and costs $85 per person.

Here are the pairings: citrus seafood ceviche and Stone Levitation Ale; potato gnocchi, truffle fonduta, and shiitake mushrooms and Stone Pale Ale; sea bass in curried beer broth and Stone IPA; spicy braised pork spareribs and Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale; braised oxtail with bone marrow mashed potatoes and Green Flash/Pizza Port Carlsbad/Stone Highway 78 Scotch Ale; toffee browned butter brownies with vanilla ice cream and brûléed banana and Stone Old Guardian BELGO Barley Wine.

On Friday May 27, Portland’s Hopworks Urban Brewery pairs up with Trellis in Kirkland for a multi-course pork-centric dinner that begins at 6:30pm (expect to wrap up around 9:30pm).

It’s $65 per person and the dessert course is an ice cream float with a Hopworks stout as an accompaniment. Not a bad way to end an evening.
