NJ  Artisan Wine and Beer Makers Dinner Pairing

Join us May 19 for a very special event. Corkside Wine Club, the collaboration between Krug Catering at Orange Lawn and Hank Zona of The Grapes Unwrapped, brings you a really cool pairing dinner at The Cub at Orange Lawn in South Orange, NJ. Carton Brewing in Atlantic Highlands has developed a cult-like following (and rave reviews to back it up). Beneduce Vineyards, also in a few short years, has become one of New Jersey’s premier wineries, making really good wine by any state or region’s standards. Augie Carton is a big wine fan and collector too, and Mike Beneduce is not just a winemaker and grower, but a certified somm and big beer aficionado, so this is a fun and exciting chance to highlight the combination their artisanship and palates. Also making a guest appearance are the cheeses of Cherry Grove Farm, a sustainable dairy farm and creamery in Lawrenceville, NJ. Oh, and the menu for the pairings (one beer and one wine per course) is killer too. This is not a contest, it is a celebration of great food and beverages with a focus on the Garden State’s finest.
