Do you know there are a dozen active craft breweries operating in the Alpes-Maritimes? And there are dozens more between Nice and Marseille. Yes, craft beer – bière artisanale – is a growing specialty in France. If you’ve grown weary of mass-produced industrial lagers, come and taste what you’ve been missing. We’ll sample several local beers from local craft brewers. Santé!
Our day will start at the Allez Hops! retail micro-brewery beer store and a brewery in its own right. ACR Governor Daniel Deganutti and his team will introduce local beers from the Cote d’Azur and offer a tasting of their favourites: Brasserie Artisanale de Nice Zytha; Colgan’s (Mouans-Sartoux) Hopbuckler IPA; Brasserie du Comté (St. Martin-de-Vesubie) Blanche Bio; Mare Nostrum (Castillon) Ambrée; Lou Soulèu (Antibes) Lou Garoupe Brune. The team will also offer commentary on the local breweries and brewers and state of the local marketplace.
After the tasting, we will walk around the corner for lunch at Pastry Plaisirs (11 Rue Delille). Our 3-course lunch will start with a brouillade of eggs with smoked salmon in its homemade puff pastry and you’ll have the choice for your main course (pre-ordered when registering):
- Lamb shank, mashed potatoes with olive oil and chives
- Haddock filet, homemade parsnip puree, small vegetables, white butter
- Spinach and walnut homemade ravioli, chef's gorgonzola cream sauce
The dessert will be an almond cream tart with chocolate sauce, house sorbet pears. White wine (Manoir du capucin from Macon), red wine (Chateau des Coccinelles from Côtes du Rhône), coffee and water are included.
After lunch, its quartier libre and you are welcome to visit the Mamac museum in the nearby vicinity or walk down the coulée verte to the Place Massena Christmas Market to get some holiday gift shopping done for your friends and family!
