GUNSHOW CONTINUES SHOTGUN BEER DINNER SERIES ON APRIL 17
WITH BELL'S BREWERY
ATLANTA (March 10, 2016) – Gunshow, chef Kevin Gillespie’s nationally acclaimed Glenwood Park restaurant, is riding into 2016 with a continuation of its popular Shotgun Beer Dinner Series. The 2016 events include four dinners featuring different craft breweries. First in the frothy lineup is Bell’s Brewery on Sunday, April 17 at 6 p.m.
This innovative dining experience offers five courses from Gunshow executive chef Joey Ward and his team paired with five beers from Bell’s Brewery. The food will be served in Gunshow’s signature style (dishes are presented on rolling carts and trays to diners), and the brewery will pour beers to match throughout the meal.
Based in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Bell’s Brewery's founders believe the health of our natural environment heavily influences the craft quality of our beer. Despite its remarkable growth from 135 barrels in 1986 to over 310,000 barrels in 2014, Bell’s remains steadfast in reducing the brewery’s environmental impact and providing a farm-to-glass experience. The brewery’s commitment to quality and sustainability mirrors Gillespie’s passion for serving his guests fresh, organic and sustainable ingredients.
“I really look up to Bell’s Brewery and the way the company has remained true to their commitment to sustainability and invested in Michigan agriculture with Bell’s Farm,” says Ward. “As a chef with a similar vision, it’s very inspiring to work with Bell’s for our first beer dinner this year, and that inspiration will certainly be reflected in the food we prepare that evening.”
Tickets are $125 per person (excluding gratuity), which includes a tasting of all dishes and beers. Seating will be at communal tables and is limited to 60 guests. Tickets are available for purchase online through Xorbia.
The remaining schedule for the 2016 Shotgun Beer Dinners includes the following:
- July 17: Allagash Brewing Company
- Aug. 14: Oskar Blues Brewery
- Nov. 13: Dogfish Head Brewery
Gunshow is located at 924 Garrett Street. The restaurant is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. Guests may park in the Glenwood Park parking lot and on the street. For more information, visit gunshowatl.com or call 404-380-1886.
