Foundry on Elm, which has been delighting Davis Square diners with its laid-back atmosphere and brasserie-influenced eats since 2010, kicks off its July beer dinners. Each Thursday, they roll out a two-course prix fixe menu—which chef Shayne Nunes keeps under wraps until the day-of—paired with two selections of craft beers curated by Foundry’s “beer czar” Geoff Thompson.

They’re starting things off with pairings from Two Roads, a three-year-old brewery based out of Connecticut and one of Boston magazine’s top 21 New England breweries. Best known for their German pilsner, Ol’ Factory Pils, Two Roads carries a wide range of offerings, including Conntucky Lightnin’, a bourbon-barrel-aged strong ale made with corn grits, and the Philsamic, a sour beer made with 14-year-old balsamic vinegar as part of their experimental Road Less Traveled series.

Here’s Foundry on Elm’s full July beer dinner lineup.

  • July 2: Two Roads Brewing Co. (Stratford, Connecticut)
  • July 9: Peak Organic Brewery (Portland, Maine)
  • July 16: Sixpoint Brewery (Brooklyn, New York)
  • July 23: Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware)
  • July 30: Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, California)

In keeping with Foundry’s casual style, no reservations are required—just show up and get fed.
