HenHouse Beer Dinner
On Tuesday, October 23rd, Comal will welcome back Sayre Piotrkowski from HenHouse Brewing Company to feature a selection of small batch beers paired with dishes by Comal's executive chef Matt Gandin. Dining with Sayre, guests will have the opportunity to ask questions and hear the story behind each featured beer.
HenHouse was founded in Petaluma in 2011 and later moved their brewing operation to Santa Rosa. They now have tasting rooms in both Santa Rosa and Petaluma and release hot-off-the-press cans each week at both locations.
From the outset, HenHouse has focused on underappreciated styles such as Saison, Oyster Stout (brewed with local Hog Island Oysters and CA barley) and Belgian-style Golden Ale. HenHouse is a mission-driven operation; beyond producing exceptional beer, they also strive to create living wage jobs, source ingredients locally and work with local farmers to reuse their spent grain.
Like previous dinners, the HenHouse beer dinner will be held in Abajo, Comal’s private dining room. This is the latest installment of the Abajo Dinner Series at Comal, a series of producer dinners that are collaborations between Comal’s kitchen and the featured vintner, brewer or distiller. Previous dinners have showcased Arnot-Roberts Wines, Cinco Sentidos Mezcal, Bedrock Wine Co., Mezcal Vago, Fieldwork Brewing Company, Fort Point Beer Company, and many others.
