Granary ‘Cue and Brew’ to Host Brewmasters’ Invitational Dinner Oct 25
The Granary ‘Cue and Brew’, in partnership with the Brewers Association, is excited to announce that the restaurant will be hosting the first ever Brewmasters’ Invitational dinner on Wednesday, October 25. Scott Metzger of San Antoniobased Freetail Brewing will join Chef and Owner Tim Rattray as host brewer. A total of five chefs and five brewers will collaborate to offer a five-course tasting menu.
Accompanying The Granary, the dinner features four guest chefs and brewers, all hailing from Texas or Colorado. All five chefs, including Chef Steve McHugh of Cured at Pearl, will be paired with a brewer and tasked with creating a course to pair with a specially selected beer. Boulderbased chefs include Chef Adam Dulye of the Brewers Association, Chef Kyle Mendenhall of Arcana, and James Beard Awards semi-finalist Chef Steve Redzikowski of Oak at Fourteenth. Along with Freetail, two other Texas born breweries participating are Eureka Heights Brew Co. of Houston and Hops and Grain Brewing of Austin. The two Colorado-based breweries include Epic Brewing of Denver and Ska Brewing of Durango.
“It’s an honor for The Granary to be selected as host for the Brewmasters’ Invitational Dinner in San Antonio this year,” said Rattray. “We’re looking forward to sharing some of our own traditional Texas barbecue techniques and craft beer specialties while hearing from other great Texas and Colorado chefs and breweries.”
“We are excited to showcase some of our member breweries at this inaugural dinner. Partnering brewers and chefs from small and independent breweries and restaurants meets our goal of showcasing the collaborative spirit of the brewing and restaurant communities,” said Nancy Johnson, Brewers Association event director. “In addition to an amazing and fun dinner experience, dinner guests will hear directly from the brewers as they visit each table to chat about the pairings.”
The San Antonio-based dinner is part of a planned larger program to unite brewers and chefs whose industries overlap. The Brewmasters’ Invitational encourages shared stories from small and independent brewers, chefs, and members of the Brewer’s Association so that brewery members and chefs can better connect in the future.
