Beer Tasting Weekend – December 2nd & 3rd!

Event season is well underway here at Ravenwood Castle, with several mysteries, and our annual Halloweekend event already announced. There’s a lot more events on tap for this season, starting with the next in our series of popular Beer Tasting Weekends! For those of you who haven’t joined us for one of these events, our Beer Tasting Weekends aren’t your normal beer tasting dinner – these tastings last all weekend long. Two days full of good food, great beer and awesome breweries! This next event will be December 2nd & 3rd, 2022, and features Jackie O’s Brewery and Saucy Brew Works.

Friday’s dinner will be headlined by returning favorite Jackie O’s Brewery. Kevin Coffield will be joining us to discuss a bit about Jackie O’s and share some of their amazing brews. Friday’s lineup will begin with Ricky (Golden Ale), as the welcome beer, and dinner will include Potato Skins with Applewood Smoked Bacon, Cheddar Cheese & Green Onions paired with Who Cooks For You (Hazy Pale Ale); Spinach Salad with Goat Cheese, Craisins, Toasted Almonds & Balsamic Vin paired with Razz Wheat (Fruited Wheat Ale); Smoked Half Chickens, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy, Vegetable Medley of Cabbage, Carrots & Zucchini paired with Deck the Hills (English Style Holiday Ale); and Chocolate Chip Cookies paired with Bourbon Barrel Vanilla & Coffee Dark Apparition (Imperial Stout).

Saturday’s dinner features the first visit to Ravenwood by Saucy Brew Works from Cleveland. Matt Goshert will be joining us to share a bit about Saucy, as well as some of their great beers. Saturday’s dinner will include Wood Fired Flat Breads with Pesto, Roma Tomatoes & Cheese paired with Love You Bye (Double IPA); Hearts of Romain Salad with Creamy Caesar Dressing paired with the pub exclusive Goaaaaallll! (Pale Lager); Smoked Brisket, Au Gratin Potatoes and Green Beans paired with Juicy ASAP (IPA); and Chocolate Caramel Brownies paired with What’s His Nuts (Peanut Butter Coffee Stout); and topping off the lineup will be Three Ho’s (Christmas Ale).

As has become tradition during our beer tasting weekends, there will be an informal tasting lineup Saturday at noon, which will feature some of our favorite offerings from the Raven’s Roost Pub. And of course we will be offering a great lineup of beer, including more from Saucy and Jackie O’s in the Pub all weekend long.
