WOW! I am simply overwhelmed at the response so far! Keep it coming, gang!
I forgot to mention in the invitation and otherwise, that for those interested, Head Brewer Tim Roberts, a considerable talent in Philadelphia brewing circles, as you will discover at this dinner, will take us on a brief tour of the impressive brewery at Indpendence, just before the dinner commences. For those who've never visited a brewpub's brewery, it is a fascinating little tour. And having the always entertaining Lew Bryson along to guide us through the dinner, well, that is just a double bonus.
Now, unlike previous DDC events, this will not be a buffet, nor an orgy of food (we have been spoiled that way, havent we?), but a thoughtfully designed dinner paired with skillfully made beers. Having has TWO beer dinners here this year (concluding my annual Book and The Cook beer tours), I can tell you that the food and the beers were equally impressive, and the entire staff is excited to have us, as they prepare to transform the place into a steakhouse format brewpub.
This will be a fitting farewell to the Independence name in Philly, as well as a unique culinary experience.
