Fifty West Golden Ticket Beer Dinner

From Facebook:

On Thursday July 27th at 7pm Arnold’s Bar and Grill and 50 West have teamed up for Arnold’s first ever beer pairing dinner. If we waited this long to do one we figured why not do it right. Arnold’s and Fifty West are combining a 3 course Southern Chef’s tasting menu with 3 of Fifty West Brews and three of Cincinnati’s best Blues artists. Each beer and food tasting will be paired with 3 individual sets from John Reddell & Erin Coburn, Diamond Jim Dews and Ricky Nye. Between sets, beer experts from 50 West will take the stage to tell you all about the beer you are drinking and Arnold’s Chef Dave Marlow will explain what went into the food. To round out the beer dinner everyone in attendance gets to take home an unopened limited edition can of 50 West’s Tangel Fruit Stand IPA or Ocean City Gose with a free Golden Ticket attached to it. What is a Golden Ticket you ask? Very similar to Willy Wonka’s fabled Golden Ticket, it gains you free admission into 50 West’s Fiftyfest 2017 (A $15 value).

Tickets are $39 dollars and you can get them at:
https://fiftywestbrew.com/event/arnolds-three-course-golden-ticket-beer-dinner/

Tickets are extremely limited and are first come first serve.
