Last Wednesday a lucky crowd of approximately 200 people attended Craft Beer + Food. This is the second year that Kim and I have produced this food and beer pairing event. Guests moved from station to station, sampling the pairings. There were 11 pairing stations in all. Each station consisted of a restaurant and its partner brewery. In the end, everyone walked away from this event with a greater appreciation of how fine food from some of the area’s top restaurants can be thoughtfully paired with delicious craft beer.
Once again, our participating restaurants and brewers served up some inspired and creative pairings. It was very difficult, if not impossible, to pick a favorite. We extend our deepest thanks to all of our participating restaurants and breweries, as well as our guests and volunteers. A special shout out for Ravishing Radish Catering, which provided staffing for the event and also the amazing event space on Lake Union. Proceeds from this event benefited the Just Garden Project.
