On November 8th, 2018 Old Flame Brewing Company helped celebrate Foundry Kitchen and Bar’s second anniversary by presenting Farm to Table: a Wild Game and Beer Pairing Dinner. The night was an overwhelming success with a sold-out restaurant consisting of a 5-course tasting menu. Each dish was creatively crafted by Chef Steve Lovisa and thoughtfully paired with an Old Flame brew. The result was a night of delectable dishes, and beers that helped elevate the experience. Read below for the pairings.
Pictured here is Chef Lovisa who spoke about his dishes throughout the night and sales rep Big Red who explained tasting notes for the beers.
