We are hosting a unique beer dinner on the evening of Thursday, January 7th. We are featuring five amazing craft beers from Fargo Brewing Company paired with a five course dinner designed and prepared by Executive Chef Jeff Anderson from The Lowry (Minneapolis, MN). Aaron Hill, co-founder of Fargo Brewing Company will also be joining us for the evening.
At our Winter Beer Dinner, you will experience a ‘one night only’ menu complete with brewery stories and expert pairings. Aaron will introduce each of his beers and tell us all about his experience launching a brewery during the renaissance of craft beer in the heart of the Red River Valley. Chef Jeff Anderson will describe the pairings as each course is served.
We will be featuring some of Fargo’s new brews as well as a couple of their flagships.
