Legend Brewing vs. Camden’s Dogtown Beer Dinner Smackdown

Camden’s has a much more humorous explanation of this event than anything I could come up with:

In a most unlikely turn of events, Camden’s Dogtown Market has been sanctioned to STEAL BUSINESS from its neighbor, Legend Brew Pub by serving a menu of fantastic food with beer pairings for one night only! This was a feat of great détente, with a team of negotiators working into the wee hours to placate two sides with monster egos and little common ground. But in the end, an accord was reached and the people shall be the victors!

Actually, Legend’s Sales Manager Kevin Timme stopped into Camden’s for some toothpaste and asked if we might ever be interested in hosting a beer dinner with him, to which we shrugged and said “Sure.” But from that small exchange a dinner of epic proportions has emerged and we’re going to make it sound BIGGER THAN IT IS!

There will be informative banter from Kevin, incoherent slurring from Chef Andy, and possibly some dirty jokes from Legend’s Head Brewer…for which no price can be properly levied.
