Middleton Place Hosts Beer Dinner

Holy City is spicing up its signature American porter for a Middleton Place Restaurant beer dinner that’s meant to serve as a counterpoint to its annual Braise & Brew event, a January celebration of heavy meats and dark beers. At Hot Nights & Holy City on Aug. 25, the menu includes fried chicken, grilled venison and a beer to make drinkers sweat themselves cool.

For its Savory Jalapeno Pluff Mud Porter, Holy City’s brewers added locally-grown, house-smoked jalapenos to the 5.5 ABV beer. The porter will be paired with house-cured pork belly and peach preserves.

Tickets to Hot Nights & Holy City are $75; the dinner runs from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. To purchase tickets, log on to middletonplace.org, or call 556-6020.
