At RIS, we enjoy a good foodie challenge. On May 1st, our Wine Director, Leah Cheston (winner of the 2013 International Food and Wine Festival Sommelier Showdown) will battle her husband, Thor Cheston (dubbed “Sir Cheston” after his induction into the Knighthood of the Brewers' Mashstaff) in BEER VS. WINE: THE SHOWDOWN. Get your ringside seat for this head to head challenge as they break their 1-1 record for which is the better pairing for food: wine or beer. Enjoy a five course Springtime farmers market menu by Chef Ris, accompanied by a wine and a beer pairing for each course. Cast your vote and help settle the score between this restaurant power couple as to which is the winning libation! The evening promises to be both educational and entertaining. Cost is $125 per person plus gratuity and tax. The evening will begin with beer and wine cocktails in our Café at 6:30pm, followed by dinner in our Federal Room at 7pm. Spaces are limited, tickets are available for purchase online.
