Santa Clara Valley Brewing will host their first ever beer-and-food pairing dinner at their brewery (101 East Alma Ave., San Jose) on Wed., Jan. 27, 6:30pm-9:30pm.
Guests will dine inside the brewery area, next to the stainless steel tanks, kegs and barrels. In addition to the views inside the brewery, co-founder Tom Clark adds that the brewery aroma will be amazing thanks to a fresh brewed batch of the popular Electric Tower IPA.
Brewmaster Steve Donohue shares that the idea for the dinner – an official SF Beer Week event – came about on a whim during a visit from friend Ryan McTighe, chef and owner of Handheld Catering. Ensuing discussions eventually led to the carefully constructed dinner menu.

According to Clark, the dinner will be the first of many to take place at the brewery: “We have a great space, and we fully anticipate doing more of these.”
