City Barrel Beer Dinner with Chef Benjamin Wood
Sat, October 9 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm$150.00
Have you always wanted to come to one of our elegant Farm Table Dinners, but wine isn’t your thing? Join us for our very first beer dinner featuring City Barrel Brewing Company! Their Executive Chef Ben Wood will be whipping up five delicious courses while Co-Founder and Beer Director Grant Waner will be on hand to pour the perfectly paired beers. City Barrel, which opened in The Crossroads last winter, is known for their elevated food, long-aged sours, bold IPA’s and unique wild ales. This surely won’t be your average beer dinner!
Chef Ben Wood started his cooking career at the age of 16 in gastropubs, country clubs, small Italian restaurants in upstate New York before landing an opening chef role at Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano. From there he moved to Kansas City, where he fell in love with local cuisine and found passion for cooking with local native ingredients. He soon became the Sous Chef at The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts and helped to start the pre-performance dining experience and cater large dinners alongside local chefs. Not long after that he took on his first Executive Chef role at The Corner Restaurant in Westport. While at The Corner they were named best Brunch in Kansas City by the Pitch 2. He then found a home at City Barrel Brewing Company + Kitchen where he continues to work with local businesses and farmers to create an amazing dining experience in Brewers Alley.
Our Farm Table Dinners are unique, one of a kind, dinners that reflect the bounty of the season. Because the meals rely on ingredients that are sourced from what is fresh and seasonally available, the menus are not created until 1-2 weeks prior to the event.
*Green Dirt Farm dinners are one of a kind meals created around products made on our farm, (artisan cheese and humanely raised lamb meat) as well as other local seasonal small farm products. Because of our unique focus on specific ingredients for each menu, we cannot guarantee menu adjustments or exceptions for dietary restrictions. Requests or questions regarding dietary restrictions must be emailed and approved prior to purchase.*
