Brewer V Vintner: Pairing Dinner

>>> SOLD OUT <<<

It’s a battle of beverages! We’re pitting Drake’s Brewing Co. Brewmaster John Gillooly against Blacksmith Cellars Winemaker Matt Smith for a beer and wine foodie love fest! YOU will determine which craftsman wins ultimate bragging rights by best pairing their tipple to Chef Bryan Widener’s five-course prix fixe menu in this epic dinner battle royale.

The event will begin with a casual cocktail hour schmooze fest at 5:30pm, where you will sample infused cocktails crafted by resident Drake’s: The Barn bartenders while scoping out your spot and snacking on starters. Seating and dinner service will start at 6:30pm sharp.

As you eat your way through a ridiculous array of dishes, the brewers will present their beer/wine 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!


• All tickets include 5-course meal, 9 drink pairings, cocktails during the mingling hour, a private dining experience and open discussion session with these industry leaders. Service fees, tax and gratuity are included. No menu substitutions, must be 21+ to attend. Limited seating available!
