Night at the Museum: Chocolate & Beer
Fantastic history? Chocolate? Great local beer? Check, check, and check!
An evening of relaxed fun is on tap with Laughing Sun Brewing Co. co-owner Mike Frohlich as he provides a spirited discussion of “The History of Beer.” He’ll also share his trials and errors with creating unique local microbrews. Following Mike’s talk, mingle in the Atrium and enjoy a flight of three local beer samples from the Laughing Sun brewery:
- 19th Amendment (chocolate malt, chocolate, chokecherries)
- Kite Flyer Mild
- Strawberry Wheat
Each beer will be paired with its own “mystery” gourmet dessert and savory appetizers related to chocolate! We’re keeping these gourmet goodies a secret until you get to the tastings, but they will be especially created for this event by Edgar Oliviera of the James River Café and his pastry chef Ashley Torgerson, graduate of the Le Cordon Bleu Institute.
