During tastings that last 75–120 minutes, guests sip on five frothy beers from Flying Dog Brewery, the brainchild of founder George Stranahan's surreal round of drinks at Pakistan's Hotel Flashman following his attempted climb of the fearsome K2. As the beer's signature labels - illustrated by famed Hunter S. Thompson collaborator Ralph Steadman - look on, each brew mingles with expertly paired bites of bacon-inspired treats, including pulled pork braised in Snake Dog IPA, bacon avocado black-bean soup, and candied-bacon chocolate mousse.
Helmed by chef Jim Benson, Eleven Courses’ multifaceted team of chefs, artists, and organizers embraces the art of the party with elegant catering and event services ranging from in-home tastings to multicourse wedding feasts. Top-notch chefs curate nuanced tasting menus as well as wine and artisan-beer tastings that tease out the complementary tastes of bacon and beer or wine and truffles.
In addition to keeping kitchens alive and cooking, Jim’s team also handles the whys and wherefores of event planning. Resident visual artists contribute to cake and floral designs, and professional planners orchestrate happenings ranging from weddings and business meetings to black-tie fantasy-baseball drafts. Eleven Courses' staff members hone their skills at a range of regional events such as the Capital Bacon and Beer Bash, the Baltimore Bridal Show, the National Harbor Wine and Food Festival, and the 3rd Anniversary Hippodrome Foodie Experience with Andrew Zimmerman of Travel Channel fame. Eleven Courses has been featured on WTTG FOX 5 and WBAL 11.
