Fork & Bottle Dinner Series
June 25, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$95
Summer weather is upon us and we’re ready to crack open an ice cold brew– or 4.
Join Proof on Main for a new dinner series, Fork & Bottle, where guest brewers, distillers and winemakers will create special pairings for reception and prix fixe 4 course menu prepared by chef Levon Wallace. Our first dinner in the series will welcome Stillwater Artisanal Ales from Baltimore.
Stillwater Artisanal Ales is the nomadic brewing venture headed by Baltimore native, Brian “Stillwater” Strumke. A former internationally renowned techno DJ and producer who has extensively traveled much of the US and Europe, he returned home in 2004 to delve into a new passion, brewing. Brian rather quickly made his mark in the homebrewing community for his often odd concoctions and unconventional brewing methods. “I look at brewing as an art form, creating a beer to me is like painting a picture. There are virtually an infinite amount of variables that can be manipulated and my approach to brewing very much parallels how I went about creating my music.”
Brian eventually cut his teeth by ranking in some local homebrew competitions, which eventually led to wins in the Sam Adams Longshot and Holiday Competitions, as well as the AHA (American Homebrewer’s Association) Nationals. In 2010, after about 5 years of backyard brewing, Brian has taken Stillwater Artisanal Ales to the public. Wary of startup costs for a full-blown brewery, Brian now travels to various breweries in the US and Belgium, hand-crafting small-batch, authentic ales.
