Calling all Homebrewers!

Beer Lovers,

Homebrewer’s Beer Dinner at the Fort George

The Fort George Brewery + Public House will celebrate and honor the art of homebrewing at a special beer-pairing dinner on Wednesday, April 15th. 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 27th for consideration.

Beers will be selected based on quality, variety, creativity and compatibility with food. Only one beer per homebrewer 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 35 guests (approximately 3.3 gallons or 35 12oz. bottles) on April 15th 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.

Last year’s Homebrewer’s Dinner was arguably one of the most exciting Fort George beer dinners to date. The brewing talent on display challenged the kitchen to create an exceptionally innovative menu and the atmosphere was jubilant, as each brewer described his beer and passion for homebrewing.

Call (503) 325-PINT for submission information, reservations to the dinner, or other inquiries.
