The pairing of wine with cheese has long been a given. But the recent revival of craft brewing has opened the refrigerator door to a bevy of brews that can complement cheese every bit as deliciously as wine does. Join master cheesemonger Steven Jenkins, grape guru Joshua Wesson, and award-winning brewer Nick Funnell, for a tasting of artisanal cheeses paired with a specially selected wine and beer, and vote for your favorites in this contest between great beverages. Must be 21 or older.

Presented with support from Best Cellars (Dupont Circle location), and the Brickskeller, home to the world’s largest selection of beers, and with assistance from Brewers United for Real Potables (BURP)

This event is now sold out. No further tickets are available.
