Hopheads from around the corner and around the area turned out Thursday, March 13 for Pints and Plates, March 13 at Genusa’s Italian Restaurant. The event was organized by Choice Brands and Abita Brewing Company to celebrate a special cask of Amarillo Hopped Restoration Pale Ale.

The Restoration Pale Ale paired perfectly with Rachel and Cherry Genusa’s handmade pizza and ravioli, which beer lovers called divine. The homey, inviting atmosphere at Genusa’s served as the perfect backdrop to the event and added a touch of old-world flair to the classically inspired brew.

Local music man Josh Madden donned his crooner hat for the evening and entertained the crowd with an old fashioned piano sing-along, featuring some of the most popular songs everyone knows.
