Harvest, Hogs, and Hoosier Beer

Print

 

Sometimes the stars align in your favor. In these moments, we should definitely take advantage and celebrate.  So when one of my favorite restaurants announced a dinner utilizing one of my favorite farmers AND favorite breweries, I decided to take advantage.

This Tuesday, April 9th, 2013 Harvest Restaurant at 624 East Market Street will be hosting a beer dinner featuring New Albanian Brewing Company beer and a Red Wattle Hog from Barr Farms.  (If you still need a little more convincing, just say “wattle” in your head a few times over.)

On top of an exciting snout to tail menu, there will be live music by Scott Moore of the 23 String Band. There is a cocktail hour at 6 pm followed by dinner at 7 pm.  Below is a detailed schedule of the evening.
