For $35 per person, you will be able to sample Ommegang beers paired with a spread of different cheeses, including figs stuffed with Camembert roasted in panchetta, Bellweather Farms Carmody, and Sartori Espresso rubbed BellaVitano.
In addition, they will have one of the few kegs of the next installment in the Game of Thrones series of beers, Take the Black Stout, available in South Florida. This could be the first and only time to have this beer on tap locally.
The beers on hand will be Gnomegang Golden Ale with Spices (a collaboration with La Chouffe Brewery), Seduction Belgian Dark Ale with Chocolate, the aforementioned Take the Black Stout Brewed with Star Anise and Licorice, Biere D'Hougoumont (a Biere De Garde Aged on Maple Staves), and Three Philosophers Quad blended with Cherry Lambic.
Unfortunately for you last-minute types, this event is strictly prepaid, meaning you must call and reserve your seat by Wednesday, September 25, to get your spot. There are some spots still available.
"We have hosted everything from beer educational sessions to five-course sitdown dinners at the BX with much success," owner Sally Parsons told us. "Our mission is to increase the appreciation of beer through socialization and education, so we try to offer both at our tastings.
"We will be asking for people's feedback on the cheeses and the beers, as we are looking to offer gourmet cheeses on a limited basis at the store and want to be able to recommend pairings."
If for some reason you can't make it on Sunday, be on the lookout for a homebrewing competition coming up in November.
