BATTLE OF THE BOOZE III  “CRAFT OF THE TITANS”

 CRAFT COCKTAILS vs. CRAFT BEERS 

Thursday, September 27, 2018 at DK Steak House

6:00 p.m. reception, 6:30 p.m. dinner  

3 Different Craft Cocktails, 3 Different Craft Beers, and 4 courses featuring local beef from Kunoa Ranch

Limited to 50 guests

 

Some foods just cry out for a n(ice) cold beer! And some foods beg to be paired with a great libation!

Our d.k Steak House Executive Chef Albert Balbas has

created a menu for the ultimate “tasty” showdown between libations and brewskis.

Indulge in three delicious courses paired with BOTH handcrafted cocktails created by

Chandra Lucariello Director of Mixology & Spirits, Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits

and Craft beers paired by Dave Power Non-Certified Beer Aficionado, Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits

Each will be vying for taste supremacy. Come down and YOU can be the judge!

 

Mirror, mirror on the wall, which is the fairest pairing of them all?
