Brew Master Dinner
Friday Night Brew Masters Dinner
Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages...Join us for the 10th Annual Beer & Food Pairing Event on Friday Nov 6th .The evening will be a gastronomical exploration of unbelievable flavor combinations featuring nationally recognized craft beers and classic seasonally focused locally sourced cuisine. The event is an intimate Brew Master meet & greet, with a most unusual MC who will inform and entertain throughout the evening. 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.
The Brew Masters Dinner will be held at the Holiday Valley Lodge (new location) 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) by the god of beer, the food stations will open at 7:00 PM. Join us for a night of good people, good beer, and good food.
Tickets are $65 per person and will be available starting August 15.
