Friday Night Brew Masters Dinner, "The Golden Age of Hollywood"
Wear your finest gowns and jewels for the Golden Age of Hollywood Dinner. This evening will take you back to the '40's and '50's where the stars were larger than life. The 10th annual Brew Masters Dinner will be held at the Holiday Valley Lodge with hors d’oeuvres beginning at 6:00 PM. Rare and unique beers from the vaults will be served and with the traditional tapping of the "kolsch" (keg), the food stations will open at 7:00 PM. Brewers will be on hand to discuss each beer with you and explain the pairing decisions. Our chefs will create locally sourced culinary creations and most of the dishes will incorporate beer as primary ingredient. Join us for a night of glitz, glamor, good beer, and good food. Tickets $65 per person.
