WATERLOO — There is beer and then there is beer. There’s food and there is gourmet food. Each on its own is a fantastic experience. But when paired together you can count on a downright a culinary masterpiece.
With more than 100 varieties of beers and small plate samples from more than 40 area restaurants and a homebrew section to boot, your palate will thank you for attending Beers to You and Gourmet Too on Sunday at Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center.
Great drink, great food and a great cause as every dollar earned at this event supports Friends of Gallagher Bluedorn and the Kaleidoscope series for youth.
Keynote speaker for the event will be Bill Sysak. Often referred to as “Dr. Bill,” Sysak is the Craft Beer Ambassador for Stone Brewing Co. He received his nickname through his work as a combat medic in the military Army National Guard, and the moniker has stuck with him throughout his career in the craft beer industry.
At Stone, he’s responsible for setting the beverage standard and ensuring the beverage philosophy is followed at all Stone Brewing Co. venues. He suggests the beer, wine and food pairings for the menus at the restaurant.
