Ever tried waiting nearly two hours on a Friday night for some delectable gastropub fare? Tomorrow's six-course beer dinner might be the only way you'll ever be able to get a reservation at Monk's Kettle (3141 16th St. at Albion). And believe us, snagging a rezzy at this famously no-reservatons place is definitely reason to celebrate.

Tomorrow night, the artisan beer-centric restaurant is hosting a six-course beer dinner focusing on Shelton Brothers, a Massachusetts beer importer. Shelton carries beers that are unsweetened, bottle conditioned (i.e., unfiltered), unpasteurized, and made by hand. Of course, the fermentation is slow, and traditional methods are used. Beer from the Netherlands, the U.S., Norway, Denmark, and Belgium will be paired with food from chef Kevin Kroger. The menu includes house-cured gravlax, lamb tartare with chive oil, lamb stew with fennel, and a traditional dessert of chocolate balls. Tickets are $100 and advance purchase is recommended. Call 865-9523.
