It looks like restaurants in South Florida are finally coming around to pairing beers and food. The flavor profiles in beer are so vast and can be paired with so many very interesting foods that beer dinners have been some of the best meals I've ever had.
There are two great restaurants hosting two great breweries beers on Wednesday, April 14th.
