BREWERS DINNER at KITCHEN428
This year’s Woodland Beer Week will kick-off Sunday, August 27th with a Brewers Dinner at Kitchen428 and end with the Yolo Brewfest on September 2nd. The Brewers Dinner is a gathering of friends, family and community to celebrate food, beer and wine, while raising funds to help Yolo Farm to Fork partner with Dingle Elementary to revitalize their edible school garden program. The dinner will highlight the unique flavors of the season by combining local fare with our craft beers in a festive, multi-course meal. Each guest will also receive a commemorative plate designed by local artist Laura Hanke.
Kitchen428 is creating a 4 course menu that is sure to delight the taste buds and wow you and your beer drinking friends. Wine and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available complimentary with purchase of the Brewers Dinner.
Tickets are $100 per person (including tax) and seating is expected to sell out quickly. Purchase your ticket online or in our Kitchen428 Restaurant and Mojo’s Lounge.

Farmer Favorite Recipe
Green Beans & Summer Veggies

When green beans, summer squash, and tomatoes are plentiful in backyard gardens and the farmers’ market, try this quick braised summer vegetable recipe. Adding Parmesan at the end gives the finished dish a salty, sharp flavor that makes sure you’ll go back for seconds.
You can find the recipe here.
