Sun, Feb 24th 6pm Saraveza and Block 15 bring you a very special Pre-Fixe Winter Dinner. Join us at Saraveza’s Speakeasy, Bad Habit Room, for a deliciously planned meal by Nick Campion & Nate Kelley of Saraveza’s kitchen. All five courses are paired with Block 15 beers including some kegs that have been specially squirreled away and matured in-house by Saraveza’s beer curator Jonathan Carmean. Verticals of select brews will be served allowing you to taste them against one-another with paired food courses.
If that isn’t enough, this dinner will also be co-hosted by Block 15’s own Nick Arzner. Highly praised for his talents by industry folk and avid craft beer drinkers, Nick was recently voted New School’s 2012 Brewer Of The Year. He will lead a discussion and be available to talk about his beers throughout the evening.
