Wooden Hill Beer Dinner #1

We celebrated our 1st anniversary with a gourmet dinner & beer pairings!

Chef Jordan Roots, indeed the one you might have seen on Season 4 of MasterChef,  prepared a charcuterie spread plus four courses that were expertly paired with Head Brewer James Ewen's distinctive brews. The night was made a success thanks to our 40 lovely guests and our culinary team, especially Sous Chef Nick Jungers.
