Brewer V Brewer: Drake’s & Flatland Brewing



It’s a battle of the brewers: we’re pitting Drake’s Brewmaster John Gillooly against Flatland Brewing’s Brewer/Owner Andrew Mohsenzadegan for a beer and food pairing extravaganza! YOU will determine which brewer wins ultimate bragging rights by best pairing their beverages to Chef Bryan Widener’s five-course prix fixe menu in this epic beer dinner battle royale.

As you eat your way through a ridiculous array of dishes, the brewers will present their beer pairings and explain why they chose what they chose, allowing you to ask questions, engage in friendly discourse and ultimately cast your vote. Who will take home the title? That’s entirely up to you!
