Call out to Homebrewer’s: Bring us your Beer!!

The Fort George Brewer + Public House will celebrate and honor the art of homebrewing at a special beer-pairing dinner on Wednesday, April 14th. Homebrewing provides the passion, creativity and innovation that resurrected and sustains the craft brewing movement. Homage will be paid to these pioneers by featuring a five-course dinner designed to compliment each beer.

Homebrewers interested in featuring their beer should submit a two-bottle sample to the Fort George Brewery by 5pm, Friday March 26th for consideration.

Beers will be selected based on quality, variety, creativity and compatibility with food. Only one beer per brewer will be chosen, though brewers may submit as many varieties as they wish. The homebrewer must be able to provide tasting samples for a dinner of 38 guests (approximately 3.5 gallons or 38 12oz bottles) by Monday, April 12th and will have a seat of honor at the dinner. No homebrew will be bought or sold.

Selected Homebrewers will be notified by April 1st and the full menu will be released at this time.

This dinner has become a much anticipated grand finale to our annual series of brewers dinners The brewing talent on display has challenged the kitchen to create an exceptionally innovative menu and the atmosphere has been jubilant, as each brewer describes their beer and passion for homebrewing.

Please call (503) 325-PINT for submission information, reservations to the dinner or other inquiries. Log onto www.fortgeorgebrewery.com for all the latest Fort George information.
