LA Beer Week – Update on Dogfish Head / The Foundry Tasting
We are 5 days away from the epic Dogfish Head pairing (Titled Dionicess VII) at The Foundry on Melrose. Between Chef Eric Greenspan, Randy Clemens, and Gev Kazanchyan, this should be the tastiest event of LA Beer Week. Randy and Gev have given us a sneak peek as to some of the pairings we can look forward to, and have hinted that some Dogfish beers that aren’t in distribution in Los Angeles we’ll be making their appearance at this event. Limited seats are still available, please follow this link to make sure you aren’t left out. The Full Pint’s dan will be there for business and pleasure, make sure to say hi and to raise a toast. – Cheers, TFP
