Latis Beer @ Mirabelle

During a scene from the classic 1977 film “Pumping Iron,” then five-time Mr. Olympia Arnold Schwarzenegger explains, “Milk is for babies. When you grow up, you have to drink beer.”

I would like to take it one step further and say, “Rest is for babies, as well.”

Mirabelle Tavern in Stony Brook hosts a four course beer dinner on Monday, 8/16, less than forty-eight hours after the North Fork Craft Beer, BBQ & Wine Festival finishes in Jamesport.

My advice: use Sunday for a recharge, then Monday for a Mirabelle.

The pairing of eats and Latis Imports ( brews runs $44.00 per person, tax and gratuity not included.
