A Beer Dinner To Beat The Cold



Per Food 101:

“In the South, indulging in decadent food is one of winter’s only redeeming qualities. However, with the dawn of spring around the corner, green creeps back into the landscape and our diets. On Thursday, March 5, Executive Chef Justin Keith, Sous Chef Cooper Sweat and Atlanta’s favorite beer critic Ale Sharpton will team up to create a dining experience that perfectly captures this moment on the Southern calendar. The four course dinner (with an amuse bouche to start) includes the best of both worlds – a little of the decadence of winter, along with a bit of the lightness and excitement of spring. Each course will be paired with a brew handpicked by Ale Sharpton to perfectly complement both the season and the dish.”
