Draft resolution: Harpoon, Legal Sea Foods cook up beer-inspired dishes

By Kerry J. Byrne, Boston Herald

Al Marzi wants to change the way the Boston culinary community thinks about beer.
Like many beer lovers, the Harpoon Brewery brewmaster is often frustrated when he goes out for dinner. The United States may have more breweries than any other country, but when Marzi sits down at a restaurant, he’s typically handed a menu and an extensive wine list. If he asks for a beer, servers often have no idea what’s available. And when they do know, the beer selection is often unimaginative and rarely complements the cuisine.

So Harpoon and Legal Seafoods have teamed up for a beer inspired dinner. A couple of recipes are included in the article.
