Pub food and brews
Wild Rover Pub hosts first beer dinner

Combining local brews with local pub fare seemed like a natural fit for The Wild Rover Pub, which will host its first beer dinner, a partnership with the Woodstock Inn Brewery, on Wednesday, April 22. The dinner will bring together four beers paired with a four-course meal.

Dan Moskwa, manager at The Wild Rover Pub, said that with all of the craft beers and brewers in the state, it made sense to try something new and host a dinner that would appeal to both regulars and possible new patrons at the Rover. 
“People know us as solid food, great watering hole, good atmosphere,” Moskwa said in a phone interview. “I think we try to do a lot of different things here to get people involved.”
The four-course menu will be an “in the middle of the road kind of thing,” Moskwa said, with the main focus for appetizer, entree and dessert resting on the beer pairing. 
“It’ll be a wide range [of beer] of the four-course meal,” he said, noting that some will be lighter, some heavier, with a sweeter beer for the dessert pairing.  
The brews likely to make an appearance for the dinner are Kanc Country Maple Porter, 4000 Footer IPA and Frosty Goggles. Dish pairings will be selected so they coincide well with the Woodstock brews. Drawing mostly on the Rover’s regular menu, new things like a bananas foster for dessert with beer and rum will be added in. 
“[We’ll] have a good variety of stuff,” Moskwa said. “It’ll definitely be fun and I think people enjoy it.”
The partnership between The Wild Rover Pub and Woodstock Inn Brewery came about as a way to bring a very New Hampshire, very local feel to the dinner. 
“You get that nice hometown touch to it,” Moskwa said. “We started working with them, local beer, local food in a traditional pub setting. That is definitely what we’re known for here. Kind of describes everything.”
Raffle prizes will be handed out during the dinner like Red Sox and Fisher Cats tickets with the grand prize of an overnight stay at the Woodstock Inn & Brewery.
“For $45 people are going to get a pretty good bang for their buck,” Moskwa said.
