I spent a long weekend once at Lajitas, in the Big Bend, where the mayor of the town, Clay Henry II,  was a goat. A beer-swilling goat. Honest.

So it probably didn’t occur to me then that Clay Henry might be a tasty, beer-brined treat. But it would have occured to Graham Dodds, the chef of restaurant Central 214 in Dallas.

The new year is barely underway, yet already Dodds is tucking into goats. He’s teaming up with Blanco, Texas-based Real Ale Brewing for a Goat & Beer dinner at Central 214 on Thursday, January 17. Can’t say I’m a true fan of goat — whether it’s cabrito, barbacoa or stewed in any one of a dozen Caribbean dishes — but Dodds’ goat brisket almost makes me a believer. Goat sweetbreads, cheeks, rillette? Well, why don’t you and I reserve judgement until after we’ve tried them on January 17.
