Highland Ave. NE). Ale is hand-picking beers from the South’s favorite breweries, which will pair with a special, four-course dinner menu from Sweet Auburn’s Executive Chef, Cam Floyd. Dishes will showcase late summer fare like grilled meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, and more.
Passed hors d’oeuvres and beer will be served at 6:30 pm, with the seated four-course dinner, starting at 7 pm. Ale and Chef Cam will lead the group through the menu, explaining dishes and beer pairings along the way.
