Spring Beer Dinner (5/23)

On May 23rd, 2018, we are celebrating the warm sunshine and planting season with our Spring Beer Dinner! Guest Chef Eric Watson from Rustica Eatery & Tavern (Moorhead) is planning a six course pairing menu and we can’t wait.

Usually we feature a single brewery at our beer dinners, but for this dinner we are changing things up. Our friend Cory Gilbertson, from Bergseth Bros. (beer distributor) in Fargo, has selected a variety of his favorite craft beers to showcase. Cory, a venerable beer expert, will introduce each beer.

Chef Eric Watson, creator of Fargo’s celebrated downtown restaurant Mezzaluna, will be preparing the dinner and discussing the menu. We are excited to host Chef Watson and hear about his adventures in the restaurant world. Eric and his wife and business partner Sara Watson recently passed ownership of Mezzaluna along to their longtime trusted restaurant manager Taylor Snelling. The Watsons also own and operate the popular Rustica Eatery & Tavern in Moorhead. Of course, they have other projects too, which we look forward to hearing more about along with you at the beer dinner.
