VeggieDag is an occasional Thursday post on an animal-free diet and its issues.
In 2008, I co-hosted the greater Washington, D.C. area's first-ever vegetarian beer dinner, at Great Sage, in Clarksville, Maryland. Great Sage has gone on to host others. In fact, every night there is a vegetarian beer dinner: Great Sage is serves no meat dishes and offers an excellent beer selection.
Mad Fox Brewing is a normally omnivore-catering (and often pig-happy) brewpub in Falls Church, Virginia. Thus, it's fun to see the restaurant posting a menu for a vegetarian beer dinner. Beer, grain-based, is vegetarian (except for some instances of cask ale). It's the dinner menu, served with the beers, that will be animal-less.

Mad Fox's Executive Chef Russel Cunningham has created the menu; he'll offer vegan substitutions upon request. Brewmaster/owner Bill Madden will host. The dinner is scheduled for Wednesday, 24 August 2011, at 7pm. The cost is $50; taxes and gratuity are additional. The brewpub accepts reservations with a credit card at 703-942-6840.

I won't be a host, but I will be a customer!
