Join Ryan Chase of Deschutes Brewery at The Lifeline Taphouse in Redmond, Oregon for a five course dinner paired with Deschutes Brewery beers! The tentative menu is as follows:
Course 1. Spent Grain Bread Sticks with Beer Cheese dipping sauce paired with Twilight Summer Ale.
Course 2. Cajun Mandarin Chicken Salad with Poppy seed red wine vinaigrette paired with Chainbreaker White IPA.
Course 3. Palate Cleansing Sorbet with River Trail Ale.
Course 4. Barley Beef Bacon Wrapped Tenderloin paired with Hop in the Dark, Cascadian Dark Ale.
The beauty of Pickett’s Charge is to watch and race with the aforementioned talented pro racers (okay, usually from behind) enthusiastic masters, juniors and beginner mountain bike racers. The goal of Pickett’s Charge in Don Leet’s words is to “have the funnest course with the most single track.”
Guess it’s a good thing that a large part of the race takes place on a trail called “Funner.” Also a good thing the race ends with a cold pint of Deschutes Brewery beer in your hand! Couldn't think of a better way to end this mountain bike race! Cheers!
