Brew & Crew Beer Tasting Dinner: We Provide the Brew, You Bring the Crew

Are you a craft beer lover or do you brew beer at home? If so, you and your friends won’t want to miss this Brew and Crew beer tasting dinner! Make a weekend of it at The Dillard House and enjoy additional summer favorites such as horseback riding, hiking, rafting, zip lining and fly fishing.

Master Brewer Smith Mathews of Savannah, GA, co-founder and Managing Partner of Georgia’s Southbound Brewing Company, will share secrets on the latest/greatest trends in the craft beer craze during this tasting dinner on July 22nd. Mathews received his diploma in Brewing Technology from the prestigious Sielbel Institute of Technology in Chicago and the Doemens World Brewing Academy in Munich, Germany. He and Southbound beers have been featured in “Georgia Traveler” on PBS, “The Palate Magazine,” “The Beer Connoisseur Magazine,” “The Savannah Magazine,” “Southern Brewing News,” and most recently “Draft Magazine” to name a few. Mathews was the featured beer expert at the 2016 Sea Island Southern Grown Festival. A new Southbound Tap House will open this year at the Savannah-Hilton Head Airport. With beer currently in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, Southbound has experienced impressive growth over the last three years since opening. As the co-founder of the first production brewery in Savannah, Mathews has made a name for himself in the Georgia craft beer industry.

Beers from Southbound Brewing Company will be featured during a 4-course dinner. Guests will receive a Southbound souvenir pint glass with four tastings. You may win some Southbound Brewing Company and The Dillard House swag in giveaways! Afterwards, Southbound and other craft beers will be available at a cash bar. Guests will enjoy entertainment by a bluegrass band that is sure to make for a fun evening for all. Grab your friends and head to The Dillard House for some great brews, delicious food, learn a lot, meet the brewer and chef and enjoy a summertime stay in the beautiful north Georgia mountains. There’s great adventure locally (rafting, zip lining, fly fishing, horse back riding, hiking, etc.) so make a weekend of it! Cheers!
