“This year, Brewery & The Beast is going to be better than ever,” says Scott Gurney, Brewery & The Beast event organizer. “From whole animal roasts, classic barbecue and charcuterie, to modern cuisine with traditional and exotic interpretations, created with a variety of proteins, there is definitely something for every palate. Our goal, at the end of the day, is to educate people about sourcing and consuming responsibly farmed meats that are raised with genuine care and passion. It is going to be a great Sunday afternoon spent enjoying the harvest of local producers and the creativity of our community’s talented chefs.”
