Get your glasses ready and save the date! Sundown at The Grove returns to Discovery Green for its third summer season. Every Wednesday evening between July 9 and September 17, 2014, Houstonians will sample a featured craft brewery’s flight of beer with unique food pairings created by the sous chef team, led by Chef De Cuisine, Ryan Williams, of the Grove.
“We’re thrilled to bring back this popular event series to Houstonians looking for a place to unwind and enjoy great beer, food and company after work, all while overlooking beautiful Discovery Green,” said Jody Fiess, general manager at The Grove. “We’ve got a delicious summer planned. Our chefs are more creative than ever, working on exceptional pairings to complement our featured breweries.”
The Grove and Discovery Green have partnered together to create this weekly Wednesday craft beer tasting event from 5:30 – 8 p.m. Each Sundown event will offer skillfully-selected craft beer flights featuring four 4-oz. pours from breweries such as Saint Arnold, Karbach and Goose Island, and more. Plus, brewmasters from each brewery will work directly with The Grove’s chefs to create custom food and beer pairings sure to please any palate.
Brewmasters will be available each week to answer questions, discuss craft beer trends and mingle with guests. Music will be provided by DJ Sun. Guests can enjoy a bird’s eye view of Discovery Green and the Houston skyline from the air conditioned Vista Room while enjoying their flight and custom food pairings with a $15 ticket, available for purchase at the door upon arrival. Prefer wine over craft beer? Swap your flight for two glasses of wine with your ticket purchase. Alternatively, experience Sundown without a ticket by purchasing other libations from The Grove’s wide selection at the Treehouse Bar.
Hot nights, cold craft beer, savory bites and good cheer are all included at Sundown at The Grove, Houston’s not-to-miss weekly event this summer! Catch The Wave for safe transportation to and from Sundown at The Grove for a discounted fee. Free street parking is also available downtown after 6 p.m.
