Summer Beer Dinner – Thursday, July 11th

On Thursday, July 11th, 2019, we are hosting Fargo Brewing Company at our Summer Beer Dinner! Fargo Brewer Sean Dunnigan will be introducing his amazing beers. Guest Chef Ryan Nitschke from Luna (Fargo) is planning an awesome five course pairing menu.

James Beard Award nominated chef Ryan Nitschke is making his guest chef debut in the kitchen at Coteau des Prairies Lodge. We can’t wait. Ryan is the Executive Chef at the celebrated Fargo restaurant Luna and his bold culinary innovation has earned him plenty of accolades as well as a loyal following.

Chef Ryan worked closely with his good friends at Fargo Brewing Company to find the right beers for this menu. Three of the beers were crafted specially just for the dinner. The Fargo Original Lager will be served from a traditional cask, in which it is being naturally conditioned at this very moment. This is a one-of-a-kind dinner created especially with craft beer lovers in mind. In other words, you.
