Restaurants and hotels generally charge a pretty penny for New Year’s Eve dinners, but at BRU Handbuilt Ales and Eats, a modest $45 buys a fine five-course meal with paired ales. After all, champagne is not the only bubbly beverage.
Chef and brewmaster Ian Clark runs this “gastrobrewery,” serving this feast from 4 to 10 p.m. on Monday, December 31. Skeptical that it’s a feast? Think wood-roasted lamb T-bone with mushroom risotto as the main course. Call 720-638-5193 for reservations — and hope you can still get in. 5290 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder.
