On Sunday, 9/18, at 6pm we held our first beer dinner in partnership with Vida Verde Farm, the Southwest Grassfed Livestock Alliance and Chef Myles Lucero. It was a sold out private event and we closed the brew hall early to host. Upon arrival, attendees made their way to a long communal table running the length of the beer hall, beneath the oversized rustic chandeliers, set with beautiful flowers from Vida Verde Farm. Bow & Arrow owner, Shyla Sheppard, welcomed guests, and provided an introduction to the special event. Nancy Ranney, President of the Southwest Grassfed Livestock Alliance shared information on SWGLA and the value in raising grassfed livestock.
The dinner theme, Horn & Husk, was a celebration of the harvest and unique culture and place of the American Southwest. The meal consisted of 5 courses with Bow & Arrow beer pairings. Inspiration for and information on each of the unique courses, produce sources and beers were provided by Chef Myles, Seth of Vida Verde Farm and Bow & Arrow head brewer Luke Steadman.
Based on feedback from our guests, we are pleased to be able to say it was a wild success! Many thanks to our supporters and friends. Stay tuned for future beer dinner events! Cheers!
