Mystery Brewing & Prodigal Farm Dinner at Washington Duke Inn ~ April 13th

Fairview Dining Room

Fairview Dining Room at Washington Duke Inn

A few months ago I attended a wonderful beer dinner at the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club, the premier luxury inn and golf club located on the campus of Duke University in Durham. April is North Carolina beer month and this week the Inn is hosting “The Brewer and The Farmer” dinner. This special dinner features another local favorite brewery of mine, Hillsborough’s Mystery Brewing Company and Rougemont’s Prodigal Farm, on Wednesday, April 13 at 6:45 p.m.

Beer and cheese enthusiasts alike are invited to join Executive Chef Jason Cunningham for a masterfully created multi-course menu incorporating decadent Prodigal cheeses paired with flavorful Mystery beers. Mystery Brewing Company will feature limited-time celebratory birthday brews, including Sancho (Belgian Singel), Orpheus (Belgian Dubbel),Mousqueton (Belgian Tripel) and Eurydice (Belgian Quad).

Mystery Founder and CEO Erik Lars Myers will join with Prodigal Co-Owner Kathryn Spann to guide guests through this extravaganza and share their expertise along the way. These dinners are a lot of fun and a great way to learn more about the thought process behind the different beers offered by the brewery and how they pair with different foods. Not to mention the Fairview Dining Room at the Washing Duke Inn is an amazing space to enjoy an evening of great food and craft beer.

The Brewer and the Farmer Dinner costs $65 per person, or $54 for Executive Club members. The event will take place on the Fairview Patio, weather permitting.

To make reservations, please call the Fairview Dining Room at (919) 493-6699 or visit the event registration page.
