The South Bay’s newest brewing company, Santa Clara Valley Brewing, recently announced their first beer dinner event which takes place tonight, July 25, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at California Cafe Palo Alto (700 Welch Road). The food-and-beer pairing event is part of California Cafe’s ongoing Brewmasters Dinner series.
As a new brewery, Santa Clara Valley Brewing currently has two beers out in the market – their Electric Tower IPA and Peralta Porter. To round out the beers for the four-course dinner, Santa Clara Valley Brewing is joined by San Jose’s Hermitage Brewing Company. And yesterday, Hermitage Brewing released the menu for this decidedly South Bay-focused brewmasters dinner.
