The Smoke & Barrel will host their first beer dinner on December 15 at 7pm. This recently opened AdMo barbecue joint, which just won an award from The Washington Post , will host the  “5×5 New & Local” beer dinner.

This beer dinner features two beers each from all five of the recent additions to the DC Metro brewing scene. Chef Vinni Waide will be utilizing the house smoker to its full potential, while taking advantage of the late Autumn harvest, to build a holiday tinged five course meal alongside 3 Stars/Oliver’s, DC Brau, Port City Brewing Company, Chocolate City, and Lost Rhino.

Cost is $50 plus tax and gratuity. Tickets can be purchased here!
