Beer & Cheese
SOLD OUT
Holladay, 07:15

We will be introduced to the wide world of beer and sample our way through a handful of styles paired with the most delicious cheeses from our cave and cases, including our to-die-for house-aged cheeses. Meet our resident beer expert and nerd, Rio Connelly, and glean all you can from his years of beer experience. You’ll be amazed at the tertiary flavors you’ll taste by pairing beer with our top picks. Learn how to pair a variety of beer styles with your favorite cheeses and why beer is just as food friendly as wine. Not to be missed!

Please note: All cancellations require 48 hours notice. Food and wine are purchased and prepared in advance and cannot be re-purposed.

Helping to open Epic Brewing in 2010 and then starting the Avenues Proper restaurant and pub in 2013 were foundational learning experiences.
