Quinn's Pub in Capitol Hill and SBS Imports are pleased to announce Seattle's first-ever De Proef Brewmaster's Collaboration Dinner on Monday May 17, 2010 as part of Seattle Beer Week festivities. The six course, eight beer dinner created by Quinn's Chef/Owner Scott Staples will feature the worldwide release of the newest De Proef collaboration beer - Monstre Rouge created with Terrapin Brewery in Athens, GA as well as the announcement of a Northwest brewer as the 2011 collaboration partner.

The dinner will start at 6:30pm. Tickets are $60, plus tax & tip. Tickets may be purchased by calling the restaurant (206-325-7711) and providing a credit card number.

In addition to aperitif and dessert beers, each course from Quinn's
innovative gastropub kitchen (such as pork pot pie and seared duck smothered
in foie gras) will be paired with either a De Proef beer or a beer from one
of the American collaboration partners. The event will also feature a couple
of "surprise beers and brewers" from previous collaboration partners.

The De Proef Brewmaster's Collaboration series was created in 2007 by SBS'
Founder, Alan Shapiro. Each year SBS invites a noted American brewer to
travel to Lochristi, Belgium to brew a beer of their choice at De Proef with
Brewer and Owner Dirk Naudts. Past collaboration partners have included
Tomme Arthur of Port Brewing/Lost Abbey, Jason Perkins of Allagash, and John
Mallet of Bell's.

The 2009 collaboration, Monstre Rouge, is loosely based on Terrapin's Big
Hoppy Monster beer. Monste Rouge is an Imperial Flanders Red Ale aged with
American oak and fermented with Belgian Brettanomyces yeast. It has a wide
range of flavors including tart, sour, sweet, hoppy and woody. It is 8.5%
alcohol by volume. It will be officially released on August 1, 2010. For
