Le Jardin will host another Peace Tree Beer Dinner on Tuesday, January 28 at 6 p.m. Chef Tag Grandgeorge will be preparing a four-course meal using Peace Tree brews and will pair each course with a Peace Tree brew as well. Grandgeorge has prepared a number of these events at Peace Tree's brewery in Knoxville in recent years, but this will be the first in Le Jardin's new home at 2815 Beaver Avenue in Des Moines. The dinner will be $60 per person (including tax and gratuity), and additional beers will be available for purchase beyond the ones that are included with the meal. Peace Tree brewers and reps will be on hand to talk about their beers with diners. Reservations are required for this limited space event, and they can be made by calling Le Jardin at (515) 255-5787. Appetizers will be served at 6 p.m., and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. Here is the menu for the event:
