On March 7, you can have slow-cooked meat, delicious beer, and small batch whiskey all in the same event. Why yes, I will tell you more. Join Mike McGarvey and Dave Coleman from 3 Stars Brewing and Rick Wasmund from Copper Fox Distillery for an hour of exploration into pairing meat with beer and whiskey. Executive Chef and Pitmaster Vinni Waide will offer three distinct meat plates each paired with a 3 Stars brew and a Copper Fox concoction.

This is a casual affair meant for friends, meat lovers, and beverage afficionados. $40 includes tax and gratuity. Buy your tickets here. Save $10 when you also purchase tickets for Meridian Pint’s “Beer & Cowgirl Cheese” event.
