Belgium vs. America Beer Dinner on February 23

It’s been on the board for a week now and we’re almost sold out, so it’s probably time we post it on the blog.  We will be hosting our next beer dinner at Punk’s on Thursday, February 23 at 7pm. It’s going to be a Belgium vs America dinner featuring 11 (yes, eleven) beers.  We’ll be pairing each course alongside two beers of a similar style  – one from an American brewer and one  from a Belgian brewer.  You good people will drink, eat, enjoy and cast your votes for the better of the two.

I feel like its important to say that this dinner will DEFINITELY SELL OUT! We hosted three dinners last year and they all sold out.  As of right now, we have sold more than 50% of the allotted tickets.  That means if you want a ticket, you need to call the restaurant (410-571-7744) soon and pay for your spot. All reservations are taken in advance and we won’t have any space for walk-ins.

I tell you this now only so that if you REALLY want to come, you make plans now.  We don’t want you to get shut out.
