, this month's beer dinner at theLibertine Bar
features five Spaten beers along with an Oktoberfest-inspired five-course meal.
The dinner is at 7 p.m. next Wednesday, September 29. On the menu are apple and pear potato pancakes with spicy lingonberry sauce paired with Spaten Oktoberfest, smoked salmon soup with Spaten Dunkel and more.
Proving that the bar actually gives a schnitzel about City of Ate readers, the Libertine is offering a pair of tickets for the meal -- a $100 value.
We'll award them to one creative commenter. Details about the contest and the full menu are after the jump.
Update: The contest is now over. Winner announced here.
