Join Bluejacket on Monday, April 16th, as we celebrate our love of whiskey & beer with Master Distiller Dave Pickerell & Beer Director Greg Engert. On this night, we’ll host an intimate 5-course beer & whiskey dinner hosted by two luminaries of the beverage industry.
Our guest of honor is Dave Pickerell, one of the nation’s preeminent master distillers. Pickerell is behind the award-winning brands WhistlePig, Hillrock Estate & Ragged Branch. Prior to that, he spent 14 years as the master distiller for Maker’s Mark.
Representing Bluejacket is our very own, Greg Engert. Since 2006, Engert has served as the beer director for the Neighborhood Restaurant Group, which most notably includes ChurchKey, The Sovereign, Rustico & Bluejacket.
In honor of the occasion, Executive Chef Marcelle Afram has designed a unique menu to pair distinctly with each beer & whiskey offering. Each course will be served with a different beer from Bluejacket, as well as a whiskey selection from WhistlePig, Hillrock Estate or Ragged Branch.
For the Love of Beer & Whiskey begins at 7 PM. Tickets are $125 per person, inclusive of gratuity. Reservations can be made via https://lovebeerwhiskey.eventbrite.com.
