August 24, 2009 - Cannoli Joe’s Handcrafted Beer Tasting
    Our friends at Cannoli Joe's - that awesome gourmet Italian feast located at 4715 Hwy. 290 West next to the Berger Center - is hosting a new "Handcrafted Beer Tasting Tour" every
Thursday night from 6  p.m. to 9 p.m.  Each week, a different area micro-brewery will provide free unlimited beer tastings of two or more featured beers, with a representative from the brewery to answer any questions.  The beer tastings are free with the purchase of dinner ($13.99 for adults).
    We stopped by last week, and mingled with fellow food writers while gourging on all the homemade Italian specialties that the kitchen creates so well.  Executive chef Bob Hauser makes sure that all the food items are cooked in small batchs - from scratch - and we’ve never been disappointed in the quality of the cuisine.
    The Beer Tasting Tour  uns through the end of the year.   Visit Cannoli Joe’s website at for more details.
