MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN: REVIVAL LAUNCHES GEORGIA BEER DINNER SERIES ON APRIL 12 WITH WILD HEAVEN CRAFT BEERS
Kevin Gillespie’s Decatur Restaurant Kicks Off New Event Series Featuring Local Breweries
ATLANTA (March 9, 2016) – Kevin Gillespie and his team at Revival are breathing new life into the traditional beer dinner concept with the introduction of the Georgia Beer Dinner Series on Tuesday, April 12. For the first dinner of the series, the Decatur restaurant is hosting Wild Heaven Craft Beers for a five-course meal beginning at 6 p.m. The dinner will feature four savory dishes and one dessert prepared by Revival executive chef Andreas Müller paired with five different Wild Heaven beers.
Run by Georgia natives, Wild Heaven is an Avondale Estates-based brewery that aims to help raise the profile of beer in the South just as Gillespie has raised the profile of Southern food.
“As a proud fellow Georgian, I can really relate to what the folks behind Wild Heaven are doing to change the beer landscape,” says Gillespie. “Nick and Eric are using European brewing methods but adding something distinctively Southern, and that is the same concept behind Revival – to execute traditional Southern fare using precise culinary techniques.”
Tickets are $95 per person (excluding gratuity), which includes a tasting of all dishes and beers offered that evening. Seating is at communal tables and is limited to 60 guests. Tickets are available for purchase online through Xorbia.
The remaining 2016 Georgia Beer Dinners are:
- June 14: Three Taverns Craft Beers
- Aug. 16: Creature Comforts Brewing Co.
- Oct. 18: Twain’s Brewery
