Smith & Lentz Beer Dinner

Join us at Makeready Libations & Liberation on Tuesday, January 22 for a one-of-a-kind beer dinner featuring a welcome reception and 5-course menu prepared by Chef Matt Clement, thoughtfully paired with locally crafted beers from Smith & Lentz Brewing Company. Guests will also enjoy the first tasting of an all-new chef collaboration brew available exclusively at Makeready and Smith & Lentz.

The Makeready and Smith & Lentz chef collaboration brew is a unique variation of the classic Smith & Lentz style Golden Ale: German pale and caramel malts fermented with English Ale yeast, with locally sourced dark wild flower honey added from Adam "The Bee Guy" to add strength and complexity.  This honey malt base is finished with freshly juiced Thai Yellow Ginger courtesy of Hollow Hill Farms. Highly carbonated and refreshing, this one-off collaboration brew will take you on a voyage of flavor with the promise of sensory and discovery!
