anyone who knows me know that i don’t drink beer or wine. so why was i at a dayton beer week event? for the food, naturally!
cheeks and i met with a fabulous bunch of cool people at spinoza’s last tuesday for a dogfish head tasting, paired with a 5-course dinner. mmm let me tell you, for a non-beer drinker, the event did not disappoint! you’ll have to ask cheeks about the drinks … if he remembers much from that night.
