Tastemakers | Social Project Brewing Chef Dinner


You might know your food and wine pairings, but the folks at Social Project are going to show us that beer can be just as versatile, sophisticated, and complimentary to an upscale dinner. Get ready for a unique, four-course dinner curated by Chef Timothy Ordway in collaboration with Social Project Brewing Co.

As one of Bentonville’s newest breweries, Social Project Brewing will showcase the artistry and craft that goes into brewing excellent and unexpected beer. Brewery representatives Travis Banks and Chris Spence, along with Chef Tim will give a behind-the-scenes look at what makes each beer style unique, how our resident “Sauce Boss” chef created the night’s menu, and what happens when the culinary and brewing arts come together.

Sophisticated, chill, and full of fun stories, this isn’t your dad’s night out. (And if it is, bring him with you—we’d love to meet.) See you there!

Tickets are $110 + tax ($100 + tax / members), reserve your spot online or by calling Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.
