Our most recent tasting dinner was at Bark Hot Dogs in Brooklyn, just last night, and Nueske’s smoky specialties were prepared as part of each course and each course was served with a special Sixpoint Craft Ale. Bark Hot Dogs has been a great partner to us and we were very happy that they paired us with the talented folks over at Sixpoint for this get-together. Here’s what the tasting menu from the Bark dinner looked like:

We love to be a part of tasting dinners. They’re a great way for people to try our products, whether you’re a long-time Nueske’s fan or a first-timer. Tasting dinners generally involve several courses that each include something from our smokehouse, creatively incorporated by the hosting chef, and each course is often paired with a different wine or beer. Tasting dinners take place at many different types of restaurants and happen all over the country.
Tasting dinners are all about perfect combinations and are a fun way to treat yourself to an evening out that involves new flavors and culinary experiences. Ticket prices for tasting dinners can vary greatly, depending on the hosting restaurant and the number of courses served.
Follow us on Facebook or Twitter, and we will keep you well-informed on when and where tickets are available for future Nueske’s tasting dinners. If all this talk about our tasting dinners got you in the mood for a spectacular meal, check out our next one at Hearty Restaurant in Chicago on January 19th, 2012. This is a Baconfest Satellite Tasting Dinner and Nueske’s will be served… tickets will go fast. To tempt you further, here’s the menu for the upcoming dinner at Hearty. Enjoy.
