Meridian Pint has an event for the gluten-avoiding – or anybody who likes cider. Executive Chef David Shewmaker’s cuisine has been paired with a lot of beer in the past, but Meridian Pint wanted to do something fun for our cider-loving friends. If you have a gluten allergy, or if you just love cider, this event is not to be missed! Certified Cicerone® and Meridian Pint Assistant Beer Director Tim Prendergast is working with Chef to expertly pair five Crispin ciders, including the new Bourbon barrel-aged release Bird On A Wire and two casks, with gluten-free seasonal dishes. Tickets are $60 per person, including tax and gratuity (non-refundable). Doors open at 6:30PM for a meet & greet; dinner begins at 7PM. Tuesday, December 4.
