Barrel of Monks Brewing Throws Down Against Sierra Nevada Over Four Courses

If you’ve never attended a Brewery Throwdown event at Barrel of Monks Brewing in Boca Raton before, you’ve missed out on quite a few unique experiences.

I’ve been privileged to cover previous showdowns between local breweries; like Monks vs. 26 Degree Brewing Company, or Monks vs. M.I.A. Brewing Co., or Monks vs. Cigar City Brewing… the list goes on.

The Brewery Throwdown series is a unique concept that was hatched to do something a little bit more creative than your typical beer dinner. I have to admit, the typical beer dinner can be a staid affair, with breweries bringing out a selection of year-round cores and maybe a few seasonals in an attempt to showcase what they are typically like.

Here, two breweries face off against one another in a friendly battle of flavor, bringing a selection of four different beers to pit against each other in a match of spontaneous pairing ingenuity. See, the breweries don’t know what the other is supplying for beer, and both have no clue about the food that will be prepared for each of the four courses.

What we end up with is an experience that will open the palates of everyone involved, including the brewers!

Coming up this Monday June 12Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and Barrel of Monks Brewing are pairing up their beers with food prepared by Jesse Steele from Delray Beach’s latest restaurant Death or Glory.

Tickets are $55 per person and can be purchased at Eventbrite. Cheers!
