‘Tis the season for beer pairing. And Olivia, whose chef James Holmes was recently named a Bon Appetit Top 10 Favorite, is hosting a beer pairing dinner with Brooklyn Brewery. It sounds like a lot of fun.
The event takes place at 7:00 PM on Thursday, October 15, and the menu showcases “the season’s best” paired with just the right brew, as selected by Holmes and Garrett Oliver, Brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery.
