Class Description: 

Attention all beer nerds and hops afficionados!  Grab your bestie (or come solo – no judging here) to kick off fall Octoberfest ‘beer season’ with a one-of-a-kind food & beer pairing dinner event featuring suds celebrities from Boulevard Brewing Co. and a mind-blowing beer-pairing menu designed by Executive Chef Brandon Winn (Webster House & Room 39).  Chef is a farm-to-table expert in our area and believes that chefs must serve people responsibly sourced products.

There will be inside stories from the brewery, perfectly paired beer & food courses, a killer cooking demonstration, recipes, beer merch and tons of beer-loving fun. 

Consider yourself even luckier in ‘beer love’ because we will have ‘in da house’ the hard-to-find Firestone Walker Barrel Age Wheat Wine Style Ale, a special partnership between our own Boulevard Brewing Co. and Firestone Walker. In addition to that legendary brew, Chef will tip his culinary hat to the infamous Nut Cracker Winter Warmer Ale but not in a way that you might expect.

Also honored will be a preview of one of their brand-spankin’ new Quirk-tails featuring Quirk Hard Seltzer Cranberry Apple Cinnamon, an ode to Limited Release Saison Brett Dry-Hopped Farmhouse Ale with brettanomyces (what-o-mytes?) and a dish that plays on the special characteristics of Boulevard Brewing’s Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged ‘Rye on Rye’ Ale. 

Chef Brandon will flex his culinary muscles on dishes perfectly paired to the beers presented so you'll taste dishes such as Mole Negro Smoked Chicken, Clam Chowder, an appetizer highlighting smoked trout, a Salted Caramel Custard with Cherry Compote and more.  I don't want to spoil the food & pairing fun by giving up the entire menu with pairings.  You'll need to show up for that one!   

Now there’s some beer royalty in that food & beer pairing lineup! Prepare to have your mind blown. So…this beer event doesn’t sound like any fun at all.  I wouldn’t sign up if I were you. :) No really, this would make a GREAT gift for the beer lover in your life (and if that’s YOU, so be it!)  

NOTE:  Unless otherwise noted, each evening class fee includes one glass of beer/wine, with additional beverages available at a nominal cost.
