Urbanite Bistro on Friday Will Unmask South Florida A Beer Wasteland -- Or Maybe Not

Urbanite Bistro is holding its monthly dinner this Friday at 8:30 p.m. For $40 plus tax and gratuity, you'll enjoy six courses paired with six different beers selected by Chris Montelius, regional manager for Fresh Beer.

Dave of South Florida Beer Blog will be co-hosting the dinner.

If you're a beer lover, you know that many other parts of the country love their boutique hops and barley -- and certain locals can tell you the block that stuff was brewed at depending upon the smell. In South Florida, we have Land Shark. If that isn't Miller in disguise I don't now what it is.

That's why I'm looking forward to the Urbanite Bistro's collection of astoundingly interesting brews from around the globe. Here it is:

Course I

Dales Pale Ale, Oscar Blues Brewing, Lyons, Colorado

Alligator Corndog with Mango Ketchup

Course II

Ayinger Dunkel, Brauerei Aying, Aying, Germany
