Beer vs. Wine vs. Cocktails: Live!

For a chance to win TWO tickets to this event, see below.

Thursday, November 13th at 7:30PM, a battle will rage in the sky, hundreds of feet above San Francisco. A battle for the ages. A battle to see what pairs better with food- beer, wine, or cocktails- and who is better at pairing- a brewer, a sommelier, or a mixologist. This is going to be good.

FifthfloorAt the Fifth Floor restaurant and lounge in San Francisco, Executive Chef Jennie Lorenzo will prepare a five-course dinner in the Chef's Room next Thursday for this special event. The competitors will pair their liquids with each course, and diners will decide who did it best.

The competitors:

  • Master Sommelier Emily Wines will be in charge of Wine pairings. 
  • Mixologist, world traveler, and cocktail consultant Jacques Bezuidenhout will pair the Cocktails.
  • Dave Mclean, owner of Magnolia Brewpub and The Alembic, will head the Beer pairings.

These people are all very fun professionals who really know their stuff- I've spent time with each of them. And come to think of it, I've never been in the room with two of them at the same time - will a fight break out, or will love conquer all?

Tickets for all this booze and the five-course dinner are just $125. You can reserve your space for the event by calling the Fifth Floor reservation line at (415) 348-1555. The event is called "Three on Five" so make sure to reserve for that.
