As always, I really liked every course but I really loved the pork cheek paired with the roasty sweet flavor of the Dark....Dark....Goose. I also loved the dessert course because, lets face it, I love sweets!
This is always a well put together and expertly exicuted meal. If you have never been to a beer dinner before, or you haven't been to one in a long time, make Gracie's place the one you pick. You won't be disappointed!
