- May 14th: Cheese and Beer Pairing We all know that a good wine and cheese pairing can be an eye-opening experience if done right, but what about beer and cheese? Abbe Turner from Lucky Penny Farm and Grant McCracken, a Certified Cicerone, will tell us why beer and cheese deserve a place at your table, and give hints to pairing them effectively. The cost, which includes 5 beer and cheese tastings, is $15 for Slow Food USA members and $20 for non-members. This event begins at 7:00 p.m. and is only for those ages 21 and above. Location is still being determined, but will likely be central. Space is limited so please email Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP by May 1st.

We will then head to the ranch for a tour from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. There will be a nominal fee to cover the cost of the food, and space is limited so please email Laura at email@example.com to RSVP by May 10th.
