McDowell says, ‘guests will love these pairings, especially the story of the Ovila Abbey Dubbel developed in collaboration with the centuries-old monastic brewing tradition of the Abbey of New Clairvaux in California. The fifth course, Crème Brulee Trio, is paired perfectly with Sierra Nevada’s 30th Anniversary Brewers Reserve Grand Cru, a very special blend of their three most popular vintages and a tribute to Salty’s at Redondo’s own 30th anniversary, which we will celebrate in December.’ ”
