A Competitive Dinner & Comparative Tasting Experience
Join two of Pennsylvania’s top drinks experts for an evening of great wine, great beer, great food and a barrel of rollicking fun. In celebration of Philly Wine Week 2015, famed brewer Bill Covaleski of Victory Brewing Company will go head to head with renowned wine author and sommelier Marnie Old, pairing rival drinks with a three-course, sit-down dinner. Together, they will take their great debate to the people, asking “Which drink pairs best with food - beer or wine?”
Attendees will decide who wins bragging rights in this engaging and entertaining look at the strengths and weaknesses of these two legendary beverages and at the sensory science behind flattering food matching. The event is hosted by the Pennsylvania Winery Association and the Brewers of PA, each of whom has chosen a champion to stump for their cause. Marnie Old will speak on behalf of the PWA, arguing that wine has rightly been seen as the world’s pre-eminent food partner for centuries. Bill Covaleski, the founding president of the Brewers of PA, will make a case for beer having a rightful claim to this title.
Guests will enjoy a relaxed reception featuring a dozen of PA’s finest beers and wines across the full spectrum of styles, before being seated for the main event. Bill and Marnie will take to the stage as rival pairs of drinks are served with a 3 course menu, each in hopes of their favorite drink being voted the most flattering food partner. Will the wines steal the show? Or, does beer do it better? Get ready to exercise your right to vote in this fun-filled food matching extravaganza.
