Wine is the predictable pairing at Napa Rose at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa but Chef Andrew Sutton is honoring Germany’s annual Oktoberfest with a stellar menu paired with beer.
“Through Thursday, Oct. 20, the menu features beer pairings from California to Belgium,” says Chef Sutton. “It’s the first time we’ve designed a vintner’s menu to pair with beer.”
The Vintner’s Table four-course tasting menu is $90; add a flight of five beers for $45. Call 714-781-DINE or 714-781-3463 for reservations.

If you have never been to Napa Rose, You’re missing one of the best parts of the Disneyland Resort.
It’s too bad I’m going to miss this, I hope Andrew does this next year.
After reading this post I immediately booked a reservation for the 20th! I am so excited! Now me and my husband are arguing over which one of us will enjoy this more! Thank you for doing this. The first time my husband and I dined at the Napa Rose my husband made the remark that it would be wonderful to see an expert beer pairing, as you just don’t see well crafted food and beer paired enough.
You ROCK, Chef Sutton. You’ve never given us a less than perfect meal and your hospitality is unbeatable. Thanks for expanding to beer pairings.
