If you are looking for a fun night out to celebrate NC Beer Month there is a very special cider & beer collaboration dinner taking place at Standard Foods in Raleigh next Monday, April 18th at 6:30pm. Diane Flynt of Foggy Ridge Cider and Fullsteam Brewery’s Sean Wilson have collaborated with Chef Scott Crawford on unique food and beverage pairings for this event.
Guests will begin in the backyard farm with a cocktail featuring cider, beer and Crude Bitters, then be seated for a 4-course springtime dinner featuring alternate pairings of Foggy Ridge Cider and beers from Fullsteam Brewery. Flynt and Wilson will be on-hand to discuss their award-winning beverages, and their collaborative and long-time friendship. I recently visited Standard Foods for the first time and expect the food will be amazing for this dinner. You can view the menu below and purchase tickets for the event here.
