Another event to put on that ridiculously full October calendar -- Appalachian Brewing in Harrisburg is hosting a beer, chocolate, and cheese event to benefit the Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture on October 12. The speaker is Mary Izett (she's on the blogroll over there: My Life on Craft), who's been doing these tastings in New York over the past year. Learn about Pennsylvania artisan cheese; we'll assume you already know about our artisan beers.
There are two sessions: 1-3 and 4-6. Admission is $40, for which you get five pairings of beer, cheese, and chocolate, and a full glass of ABC beer, and you keep the glass...and you also sustain Sustainable Agriculture. This is a good opportunity to find out just how good local cheese is getting, have some fun, and help support non-factory farming.
