Tenth Brewer's Plate is on Sunday!

I obviously haven't written much lately so it's kind of funny that my first post back is going to basically be an advertisement. However, The Brewer's Plate is totally worth it and I'm going again this year so I feel like that's okay. If you want to read about my experience last year, just go here. There are some pictures along with my thoughts. The event itself is fantastic with a ton of great food and a ton of beer and just a lot of fun.

At this point, tickets are $65 for regular admission and $135 for VIP. I definitely think the regular admission is worth it and the VIP seems better this year than last so if you have the extra cash, go ahead and splurge!

And why not just copy / paste the whole press release just so you can get an idea. And don't call me lazy even if it kind of is.
Philadelphia, PA – March 6, 2014 – Celebrating its 10th Anniversary (#BP10), Brewer’s Plate, the highly anticipated great-grand-pappy of the beer and food pairing movement in Philadelphia, is back bigger, bolder and better than ever before, this Sunday, March 9, 2014 at 5:30 pm at Kimmel Center. Time is running to take part of what is sure to be spectacular for craft beer and food locavore lovers alike.
