Craft beer lovers are finally getting some foodie cred. A new event, Mount Dora Brew & Chew, will feature 5 tapas-style courses paired with complementing small-batch beers. The pop-up gastro pub experience is expected to appeal to a cross-section of foodies and beer aficionados.
The dinner event on September 28 is hosted by PIzzAmore and deviates from their Italian fare by offering a more sophisticated menu.
Mount Dora Brew and Chew is a natural progression of the city’s growing recognition as a destination for craft beer lovers. This seeds of this reputation were sown six years ago with the opening of Mount Dora Brewing, a popular local micro-brewery and restaurant. The brewery's opening was followed by the unorthodox craft beer bar, Mermaid Juice, which quickly earned a big following and reputation among craft beer enthusiasts throughout the state.
The area further cemented its place as a craft beer destination when Bru Tap House hosted the first Craft Beer Festival in downtown Tavares. Mount Dora Brew & Chew is the first dinner event to feature food pairings with its beers and is expected to be a quarterly event.
The event starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $40 and seating is limited. Call 352-383-0092 for more info. For the best local places for craft beer, click here.
