In addition to the “feature” of Dave breaking down an entire boer goat into specific meals live for his guests (utilizing the entire goat!), owners Mike Azalini and Mike Moore will be presenting appetizers and entrees featuring goat prepared by Dave matched with some of the three hundred-plus Trappist style, craft brewed ales they regularly serve at La Trappe.

David Budworth, aka “Dave the Butcher”, is proud to present an “An Evening of Butchery and Belgian Bier,” on August 23, 2009, starting at 3pm.
“An Evening of Butchery and Belgian Bier” will feature special appetizers, Belgian biers, and goat entrees created by Dave The Butcher. From 4pm-6pm, Dave will break down a whole locally raised, all-natural grain fed goat. Dave will demonstrate different butchering techniques in preparing the goat into a variety of cuts, that will be raffled off after dinner, each paired with a Belgian bier.
The event is hosted and sponsored by LaTrappe Belgian Bistro, located at 800 Greenwich St. in North Beach, San Francisco, California. La Trappe features 18 rotating taps of Belgian ale, and a library of over 350 bottled Belgian ales. With both casual and formal dining areas, La Trappe hosts numerous events during the year, many associated with Belgian cuisine.
“An Evening of Butchery and Belgian Bier” is also sponsored by
Biagio Artisian Meats and Long Ranch of Manteca who are providing the goats for both the evening’s meal and demonstration.
Tickets are priced at $65 per person and include a range of appetizers, Dave’s presentation, one entrée paired with one Belgian bier, a dessert, and one entry into the raffle.
