Beer versus Wine Dinner
We held our first beer and food pairing event on May 24th. In the future we will hold more of these events including a beer and cheese pairing. This event was a lot of fun as customers decided if the beer or the wine complements the delicious food best!
Veracious Brewing Company Beer versus Wine Throw Down Dinner
Each of the five courses were served with a beer and a wine that complement the dish.
Chef Michael Jackson described each course, wine educator Jon Haight explained why the wine is the perfect pairing for the dish while Tess and Mark made the case for Veracious beer!
The customers voted on which beverage paired better with each course.
