Bites, Beer & Holiday Cheer—A Book Party + Tasting

December 10, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

“Playful, down-to-earth, unpretentious, encouraging–this is the beer-and-food book that you didn’t know you needed but now can’t do without.”
– Eric Asimov, Chief Wine Critic, The New York Times

Portland inspires great food and great beer. Local authors Christian DeBenedetti and Andrea Slonecker combine the best of both in their newly released cookbook, BEER BITES: TASTY RECIPES AND PERFECT PAIRINGS FOR BREW LOVERS (Chronicle Books).

Join the authors, along with their friends from The Commons Brewery and Steve Jones of Cheese Annex, for a beer and food pairing party on Thursday, December 10th from 5-7pm at The Commons’ tasting room on S.E. Belmont Street. For $12, the brewery will offer a tasting flight of four beers perfectly paired with four recipes from Beer Bites.

DeBenedetti and Slonecker will be on hand to chat with guests about their adventures in beer and food pairing, and to sign and sell copies of the book just in time for the holidays.
