Sorry, but this beer dinner is sold out.
The top two floors of Duckworth’s Uptown have now been open almost three months. Now, the new bar and restaurant is ready to open The Cellar for a five-course beer dinner with Founders Brewing Co. at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26. In attendance will be Jeremy Kosmicki, Founders’ brewmaster and the man whose name is on every bottle of KBS as “the amazing Kosmicki.”
The idea behind The Cellar, Rob Duckworth told me in February, is to offer a more intimate environment that caters to diehard beer geeks. Gone are the TVs that are so prominent upstairs. There are two 50″ screens, but they display information about the 20 beers on tap in The Cellar (including the ABV, the style, how much is left in the keg, etc.).
The beers down in the cellar are served in style-specific glassware, and at the appropriate temperatures. And The Cellar will offer a different menu than the floors above it, focusing on local ingredients and small plates.
Tickets to the Founders dinner are $50, with only 35 available. Call 980-939-1166 to order.
