Brewmaster’s Dinner Menu

The next Punk’s beer dinner is set for Thursday, October 13!

The breweries are lined up, the menu has been written, and tickets are flying out the door.  We’ll have  brewers from Oliver Breweries (Baltimore, MD), Brewer’s Alley (Frederick, MD), Flying Dog Brewery (Frederick, MD), The Brewer’s Art (Baltimore, MD), and Heavy Seas Brewery (Baltimore, MD).  Each beer will be presented by a brewer with behind-the-scenes knowledge of the inspiration behind each brew, its malt bill and hop schedule, and what characteristics make it pair well with each dish.

And, of course, each beer will be paired with a dish created by Executive Chef Dean Maupin of Punk’s Backyard Grill and Keswick Hall. The dinner will start with a “cocktail hour” reception (featuring beer, of course) and will be followed by five dishes, including dessert. Below is the pairing menu:
