THE FOOD + BEER: The evening will begin with a cocktail reception with Union’s Detroit-style pizza, paired with Temperance’s American lager, Basement Party followed by a three-course dinner including:

  • BURRATA with wood-roasted corn, Calabrian peppers & Hewn Focaccia paired with Smittytown, an English-style Amber beer
