It's exciting for us to see the variety of beer dinners that are starting to take place here in Central Florida. The purpose of a beer pairing dinner is basically to celebrate the marriage of beer and food and these special events are starting to take place at a variety of different restaurants around town. We wanted to tell you about three of them that are coming up in the next couple weeks. One at a coal fired pizza place, one at a sushi restaurant, and one at a Southern Public House!
