Council's 1st In-House Beer Dinner

We are thrilled to be hosting our first beer dinner pairing inspired by the many wonderful pairings that we have attended in the past. For this special evening, we are bringing together six of San Diego’s top chefs, Matt Cammack of Hamilton’s Tavern and South Park Brewing, Phillip Esteban of Cork and Craft, Mike Arquines of The Lab Dining Sessions, Tyson Blake of O’Brien’s Pub, Nate Soroko of Toronado, and Kristianna Zabala of Nomad Donuts. Coming from various backgrounds with deep roots in the craft beer community, each chef has created a spectacular dish to highlight Council’s beers.

The dinner will include 5 courses, each paired with one of our specially crafted beers, featuring many of our barrel aged beers, some of which have yet to be released to the public.
