Matt and I are really excited about this. Two Brothers had one earlier this year and there were nothing but rave reviews. Here are photos from their trip. This is not going to be any sort of regular beer dinner. You'll get a chance to see the farm where your food was grown, talk to the farmers, talk to the brewers, talk to the chefs, and have what should be an amazing time.

Elkhorn, Wisconsin is just over the border.
