Canadian Beer News is pleased to present the CANADIAN BEER NEWS DINNER SERIES, an ongoing series of dinners that will bring together some of Canada’s top breweries and beer importers with outstanding chefs and restaurants to create unique and exciting beer and food pairing experiences.
For this event in the series, we’ll be hosting a friendly take on the old “beer vs. wine” rivalry, presenting beers from AMSTERDAM BREWERY alongside wines from FLAT ROCK CELLARS, and pairing them both with a convivial and communal style meal prepared by chef/co-owner Scott Vivian and his team at BEAST RESTAURANT.
To make this dinner even more special, the dessert – created by pastry chef/co-owner Rachelle Cadwell – will be served with an exclusive Amsterdam/Flat Rock collaborative beer. The first ever collaboration between a brewery and winery in Ontario, this beer was crafted by the brewing team at Amsterdam together with Flat Rock’s Ross Wise, who was a brewer in New Zealand before becoming a winemaker.
This event will also be part of the 3rd annual ONTARIO CRAFT BEER WEEK, an extravaganza of beer events taking place all over Ontario from June 17th to 24th, 2012.
Seating at this unique and exciting dinner will be limited to 30 spots, so those interested in attending are encouraged to act quickly to avoid disappointment.
