Barrio Brewing Company is sending a craft beer legend into retirement with a beer pairing dinner from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 13.

The “Ciao Charlie Ciao” dinner was created in honor of Charlie Papazian, who is the founder of the Brewers Association and has decided to retire after 40 years of hard work in the beer community.

He created the not-for-profit group that’s devoted to the promotion and protection of America’s small and independent craft brewers.

The dinner will be featuring five courses, which have been conveniently crafted to taste nothing short of great with Barrio’s beer. Aside from the eats, the brewery is tapping a new Pale Ale named Ciao Charlie Ciao — in honor of Charlie Papazian and his retirement.

Tickets are $45 per person and space is limited to less than 50 people.
