Beyond the Brew: The Calibration Dinner at the Big Beers, Belgians &Barleywines Festival

Beyond the Brew is our new series giving you a behind the scenes look at craft beer festivals, events and the people who make those beautiful beers we all enjoy!

On this episode of BoB, We are taking you behind the scenes of the Calibration Dinner for the Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines Festival. This event takes place in Breckenridge, Colorado and is regarded as one of the best beer fests for people who love craft and big ABV beers.

Join us as we attend a preliminary tasting session with some of the top craft beer minds from Avery Brewing Compan, Dogfish Head Craft Brewer, the Brewers Associatio and the culinary chefs from Quandary Grill as they work together to decide which beers and food pairings will be included in the Calibration Dinner this January.

We were able to try all of the beers they brought and give our feedback as well on what pairings sounded good. It was an amazingly fun experience and it was interesting to see how the pros get together to create these beer pairing dinners. The brewery representatives gave amazing descriptions of each beer and we even tried a few beers that were hand pumped from a cask that are upcoming in bottles soon!
