Flavor Pairing 101 with Jeptha Creed and Butchertown Grocery!

We are so excited to partner with Butchertown Grocery and offer you an exclusive opportunity to dive deep into the world of beverage and food flavor pairing! Join us on February 14 for our very first cocktail and appetizer pairing class. During this event, Jeptha Creed Beverage Director Mackenzi Poehlein and Butchertown Grocery Owner & Chef Bobby Benjamin will teach you the ins and outs of flavor pairing.
