This year's paired dinner will feature both a beer and a mead or cider sample with each course!  Taste the creations from Revere's, Moonlight Meadery, and some select breweries with fellow homebrewers and enthusiasts.  Discuss how each pairing complements each other and debate if the beer or the mead / cider wins out. Two beers are still being finalized. Check back for updates.
