Feile Beer Tasting Dinner


 Beer Tasting Dinner at Feile

On Saturday, March 13, we held our first Beer Tasting Dinner at Feile, an Irish Pub in Wells.  Andrew Robar, the chef, put together a wonderful five course dinner complete with appropriate beer selections to compliment each course. The courses varied from a grilled spiced shrimp with curry-coconut broth to a roasted oyster mushroom with goat cheese barley risotto. The main course was stout braised short ribs with cheddar mashed potato. The piece de resistance was a chocolate fudge torte with a magnificent Brooklyn Brewery Black chocolate stout!

Andrew is part of the Robar family operation at the restaurant and pub that opened last May in the restored Lindsey Tavern, a distinctive yellow, two story house dating back to the 18th century. Brother Kevin presented each of the beers with a description of the way in which they complimented the food – and did they ever!

Translated from Gaelic, “Feile” means generosity and hospitality and the Robar family lived up to the name. Thirty five enthusiastic vacation club owners and guests participated and a jovial time was had by all. The food was plentiful, delicious and was an enormous success, and the beer right on! We sat in the Pub room which had been renovated in a style both cozy and spacious, with beamed ceilings, restored tables and chairs from the original Lindsey Tavern and backlit stained glass windows.

Feile for us translated to delicious and welcoming!!!
