)-- On Friday, May 2, 2014, Milwaukee’s iconic Five O’Clock Steakhouse hosted the “Milwaukee Legends” Beer Dinner as part of “Milwaukee Beer Week” festivities. The restaurant is teamed up with two other Milwaukee legends, Lakefront and Sprecher breweries for a night of beer, steak, and live music.
Co-Hosts and local legends, Jim Klisch of Lakefront Brewery and Don Wambach of Sprecher Brewery, presented each beer and paired a selection from their respective breweries with four specially selected Five O’Clock Steakhouse courses.
The dinner began with a beer-inspired cocktail hour and buffet-style appetizers including Thai Buffalo Shrimp, prosciutto-wrapped fresh mozzarella & Wisconsin cheeses. Dinner included a salad, Five O’Clock’s famous relish tray and warm sourdough bread, followed by an entrée of blue cheese & parmesan-crusted bacon-wrapped filets. Dessert was Five O’Clock’s popular crème brulee with two rich & flavorful beer varieties to match.
The event featured live organ jazz, blues & funk by Honeyboy Lee & the Honey Pot Band.
“Milwaukee is definitely a beer town,” said Stelio Kalkounos, Manager of Five O’Clock Steakhouse. “Independently-owned Five O’Clock Steakhouse has been serving the highest-quality steaks since 1948 and we are thrilled to be able to team up with two other family-owned legends, Lakefront and Sprecher breweries for a night of great food and local brews.”
