“We treat a lot of our beer like wine,” says Aroma Thyme owner/chef Marcus Guiliano. And he showcases his best vintages with monthly, five-course dinners for up to 30 people, pairing special, rare beers with his signature dishes. On Oct. 21, he features the Ithaca Beer Company line, and Nov. 10 honors Sierra Nevada’s 30th anniversary beer list. The food, of course, is seasonal, so there may be some Montauk-caught fish, a cheese course, fall vegetables, and even a dessert/beer pairing. And sometimes, he offers a sixth course. “There is a rep from the brewery at every dinner, and he or she might bring something special,” Guiliano says.
