It was this mission alone that has attracted a strong initial following.

If you’ve visited the brewery during their tasting room hours, you would not only be treated to a nice selection of their ales but also fine artisan cheese and meats that work hand in hand with their beers.

This year in an effort to further demonstrate the versatility of not only their beers but craft beer as a whole, they will be guest hosting a dinner at Aquariva. Please join Alex Ganum as he explains the four different courses and the relationship between the beer and the dish being consumed. Due to the size of the location this event will be restricted to 25 people.

The Menu for the evening:
1st Course:
Soft Scramble Farmhouse Egg, Heirloom Carrot Ravioli and Vella Jack
Paired with Gose (rare german wheat beer brewed tart with coriander and salt)
