Last night was Beer Chef Bruce Paton’s latest beer dinner, dubbed the Tion Dinner, because it featured Damnation, Temptation, Supplication, Salvation and Redemption from Russian River Brewing. Everything was spectacular and because the MBAA conference is in town this week, there were a lot more familiar faces than usual, which made for an even more enjoyable evening. The food was delicious, as were the beers, of course. Friends, food and beer: what more could you ask for of an ideal evening? Bruce asked me to take photos of the event so I have a lot of pictures to share. Here is a photo gallery of the event.

This was just too good a photo to wait, this is Bruce with Russian River co-owner Natalle Cilurzo.
