This gets slightly complicated, so pay attention.
Beginning in August, Social Kitchen and Brewery will host a monthly Brewmaster's Dinner: multiple courses organized around a particular theme, paired with Rich Higgins' house brews. The brew-fixe dinners, as it were, are scheduled for the first Wednesday of each month, except for the very first dinner, which goes off next Wednesday, July 21. As with subsequent Brewmaster Dinners, it'll start off with an appetizer reception: three apps, two beers, and a beer cocktail. Cost is $30, including the beer.
Next week's kickoff hews to a comfort food theme: chicken wings, beef stroganoff ― menu highlights after the jump. Chef in charge: Dante Simoncini, who's taken over from Social's opening consulting chef, Rob Lam, whose contract was up. Simoncini hails from Lam-run Butterfly.
