Bar Wars: The Saga of Craft Beer vs Big Beer
Taught by Justin Bruce
Saturday, 3:00-3:45 PM - A short time ago, at a tap in the other room…

In an effort to maintain control the Emperor sought to squelch the Rebel scum by any means. He blockaded the trade routes, put pressure on dissenters, and paid off those who would sympathize.

Pairing 101 Workshop
Taught by Jay Zink with Three Creeks Brewing Company
Saturday, 4:00-4:45 PM - Ask yourself this: Do I want a beer that is going to contrast with the flavors in this dish, or complement them? Both approaches can create incredible results. Making great pairings isn’t just about serving an incredible craft beer with a great dish. When harmony exists between well-executed cuisine and a perfectly paired beer, the effect can be unforgettable! But pairing your dishes with the right craft beer doesn’t have to be hard or intimidating. In fact, it’s quite easy and very fun once you get the hang of it. Of course, there are personal preferences in both food and beer, so come to the pairing workshop to find out how you can find your perfect pairing for your personal taste.
