Zehnder's Beer Dinner

  • zehnder's 730 South Main Street Frankenmuth, MI, 48734 United States (map)

Beer and food are two of the most incredible parts of life when enjoyed separately, but imagine when they are allowed to work together! All foodies and craft beer aficionados are invited to join us this spring for a Beer and Food Pairing Event in Zehnder’s Tap Room on Thursday, March 7, 2019 starting at 5:30 p.m.

The event begins with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Afterwards, enjoy a six-course spring themed dinner featuring a unique dish created by Zehnder’s professional chefs paired with a complementary craft beer to enhance your palate. Dave Newstead from Wolverine State Brewery will be here to discuss how the pairings were decided and answer questions about their beers and the brewing process.
