GUNSHOW BEGINS “SHOTGUN” BEER DINNER SERIES ON OCT. 25
Kevin Gillespie’s Glenwood Park Restaurant Partners With Creature Comforts and Three Taverns Breweries in Pursuit of Hoppiness
ATLANTA (Oct. 7, 2015) – Gunshow, chef Kevin Gillespie’s nationally acclaimed Glenwood Park restaurant, is launching a quarterly “Shotgun” Beer Dinner Series (college fraternity affiliation not required) featuring local breweries on Sunday, Oct. 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. For this premiere dinner, the restaurant is partnering with Creature Comforts Brewing Co. and Three Taverns Craft Brewery.
“It’s been really fun designing a menu around Creature Comforts’ and Three Taverns’ craft beers because both breweries offer a wide range of flavors just like we do here at Gunshow,” says executive chef Joey Ward. “Curiosity is what drives us all creatively and inspires us to give our guests the opportunity to discover new flavors; that is our shared goal for the evening.”
This innovative dining experience will feature six dishes from Gunshow’s team of chefs and a total of 10 beers from Creature Comforts and Three Taverns.
The food will be served in Gunshow’s signature style (dishes are presented on rolling carts and trays to diners), and each brewery will pour five beers throughout the meal. Beer dinner attendees will also receive take-home goodies from Creature Comforts and Three Taverns, including glassware and other merchandise.
Tickets are $100 per person, which includes a tasting of all dishes and beers offered that evening as well as tax and gratuity. Seating will be at communal tables and is limited to 60 guests. Tickets are available for purchase online through Xorbia.
