KIHEI, HI (March 21, 2017) – In celebration of National Beer Day, Maui Brewing Company is elated to announce the Brewers Association (BA) has scheduled a Beer Dinner hosted by the James Beard Foundation that will feature Maui Brewing Company’s beers. The unique dining experience prepared in the James Beard House kitchen, known to be an honor reserved for rising stars and established culinary masters, will include farm-to-table, brew-friendly cuisine.
Both the Brewers Association and Maui Brewing Company are enthusiastic about the event. Adam Dulye, Executive Chef for the BA, explained, “While in New York City, I was talking with the team at the Beard House, and Maui Brewing came up in conversation. Literally a few days after the invitation to celebrate National Beer Day arose (sadly not in Hawaii), I was having a drink with Garrett Marrero of Maui Brewing Company, and from there everything fell into place. I reached out to assemble the team to cook and pour this celebratory meal. The culinary team extends from Philadelphia to Jackson Hole, Durango and Washington DC, along with Maui Brewing Co. and Bill Covaleski of Victory Brewing Company. From the chefs’ selections to the beers being poured, this dinner will be one of those absolutely amazing experiences that seem to happen when you cook in James Beard’s kitchen.”
Maui Brewing Company’s Founder, Garrett Marrero, said, “As a food and craft beverage lover, I couldn’t be more excited to work with the JBH and Chef Adam of the BA. When Adam asked if I would participate, the answer was a simple “absolutely!” despite the insane travel it will take for me to be there. I am deeply honored, as this is a dream come true for myself and Maui Brewing Company.”
The multi-course menu, complemented by beer pairings, has yet to be determined. The evening will include discussion from the chefs on provisions and arrangements.
Izabela Wojcik of the James Beard House added, “We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate National Beer Day at the Beard House than by inviting back the talented and exuberant beer-advocating chef, Adam Dulye, and the Brewers Association. We trusted they would corral just the perfect lineup of chefs and craft breweries to create a spectacular feast.”
“Calling All Beer Lovers” will be held on Friday, April 7 beginning at 7:00PM. Reservations are required. For more information, visit: https://www.jamesbeard.org/events/calling-all-beer-lovers?category=Dinner or call 212.627.2308.
