Breckenridge Beer Dinner

From Facebook:

***Reservations Required; Very Limited Seating***

Join us for a night in the mountains with Breckenridge Brewery:

Since 1990 Breckenridge has been warming bones at the bottom of the slopes in the small town of Breckenridge, Colorado. Lucky for those of us nestled comfortably at a much lower altitude, it didn’t take long for the craft beer world to goad them into an expansion. Now, Breckenridge brews and circulates some of the most satisfying suds in the industry all across the country.

At 6pm on August 21st, Dilly and Breckenridge Brewery will be teaming up to quench your thirst for amazing beer and abate your hunger for the perfect food to go with it. 5 beers, 5 courses, all for $45. You can’t beat it. Get in on the ground floor of Dilly’s new Brewhouse Dinner Series, you’ll be glad you did.

Call 513-561-5233 to reserve your seat.
